Covid-19 school related information
ALL will be required to introduce COVID-19 safety management systems in the form of enhanced hygiene, cleaning and disinfection, employee training and health checks, as well as physical distancing. This is to protect against the transmission of the virus to, or between, employees, students and other people who enter our school. These guidelines have been created in line with the Government’s Road-map for Reopening Society and Business. This is a document that will evolve in line with the road-map, taking into account any changes to the restrictions or physical distancing. While we have attempted to cover all relevant issues, one must bear in mind that this is a non-exhaustive document and it may not cover all situations we may encounter. As circumstances change, any procedures we implement will be monitored to ensure we remain up-to-date and in line with international best practice guidance and the Government’s Public Health advice.
Travel restrictions and isolation protocols will need consideration
