COVID-19 and SCHOOL

School is running as normally as possible. 

We have worked out some practical and sustainable ways of reducing the risks posed by covid-19 as far as possible. These include focusing on each student’s own hygiene, implementing many extra cleaning processes, the frequent sanitizing of hard surfaces between lessons and the use of any shared spaces, controlled movement around the school site, well-ventilated rooms, the provision of perspex screens in spaces where they are needed, the wearing of face masks, in small spaces the wearing of visors, the reduction as far as possible of contact between year groups and between day students and boarders, the seating arrangements in classrooms, the sanitisation of any shared equipment, the reduction of any time spent in larger groups, the reduction of almost all classes to sets of 15 or fewer, room changes to accommodate larger classes, the cancelling of social events, and the cancellation of school fixtures for the first half of term.

We have a clear protocol in place for dealing with suspected or actual cases of covid-19. This has been sent to all current parents.
