Covid-19 Response

The health and safety of our students and staff are of utmost priority. As such, during the terms where students were not allowed to be at school, we segued into Google Classrooms and a dedicated online timetable that balanced screen time with individual needs and the curriculum. Students continued to do Drama, Music, Art and P.E. wherever possible and the school developed a successful strategy for monitoring and checking up on all student attendance at this time.

Despite the challenges we held at school classes in term 1 of 2020-2021. Classrooms were stripped of all non-essential furniture to allow us to take full advantage of all space and to spread out our classes to provide appropriate separation. Some classes were split into even smaller groups, particularly in the younger age groups.

Arrival sanitization stations were set up and year groups kept in cohorts for all activities including arrival, departure and break time.

Strict protocols regarding students who were ill or had some form of symptoms were adhered to so that only a doctor’s certificate made it possible for these students to return to school. Where parents had to travel as period of quarantine was required for students as well.

Our vigilance is ongoing as we continue to ensure we are providing a safe environment where our students can continue to thrive.
