COVID-19 Response

Updates from September 2021

We’re excited to be returning to school this new academic year, with fewer restrictions but the same basic protections.  Here's what you and your children can expect.


What's staying?

  • Regular handwashing
  • Great respiratory hygiene 
  • Excellent ventilation
  • Thorough cleaning regimes
  • Symptomatic children to isolate 
  • Positive COVID-19 cases to isolate 
  • Home learning for children in isolation


What's Changing?

  • No more bubbles - children will be able to mix freely
  • No more extended drop-off/pick-up windows 
  • Children who are close contacts of a positive case do not need to isolate (although a PCR test is recommended) 
  • Parent functions will return
