Due to current circumstances the school will be following the below Health and Safety protocols. Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak we have taken a proactive approach towards COVID-19. The health and Safety of our Learning community remain the topmost priorities during this pandemic.
All students, staff and teachers are obliged to adhere with the below protocols in order to respect the health and safety of the whole learning community:
1. Masks MANDATORY – Students will now need to wear their masks at all times.
UPDATE 29/04/22: As of 2nd May 2022 it will no longer be mandatory to wear a mask in schools. However, individuals are free to make their own assessment of risk for themselves and for their children.
2. Each individual will have their temperature checked before entering the premises. Students who are experiencing any COVID-19 related symptoms including: flu like symptoms: coughing, fever, etc. will not be allowed in the premises.
3. Unwell students and staff (irrelevant of severity) should remain at home until symptoms resolve and seek medical assistance as required. A medical clearance certificate will be required before re-entry can be approved. All medical certificates must be communicated with the school management (via firstname.lastname@example.org) no less than 12 working-hours before re-entry can be approved. Last minute emails do not grant automatic immediate access for students to attend in class. A confirmation by school management is required.
Continuity of Learning: During their quarantine/recovery period students will have the opportunity to attend the sessions LIVE from the comfort of their home.
4. Enforcement of good health hygiene inside school premises– Hand hygiene stations are set up at the entrance of the facility and in every class. Students are requested to sanitize their hands before entering and also before leaving the premises.
To avoid cross contamination of shared items all shared classroom resources (such as brushes, pencils etc…) especially for students under the age of 16 will be avoided. Each student is therefore required to bring their own resources.
5. A designated care system will be in place whereby each individual will be clustered and placed within groups of no more than 5 students. In the case of students under the age of 9, 1 mentor will be assigned per group. Students are advised to remain within the same cluster/group throughout the whole period of their learning. This applies both for the students and staff.
6. IMPORTANT: Parents of children under the age of 16 and Students who have been classified as vulnerable should discuss attendance with their doctor and also with the Management of the school, in order to assess the level of risk for the child to attend the Center. The decision to attend rests with the individual and/or parents/guardians of the young learner (for students under 16y.o).
