This page intends to answer your questions regarding the school’s measures in dealing with Covid-19. Please note our Covid risk assessment is a live document that will be updated to reflect the latest guidelines. We will continue to rework our daily routine in order to follow the latest guidelines and make sure we can receive both your children and our staff in the safest possible way.
Frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices
Public Health England (PHE) is clear that if early years settings, and crucially if they are also applying regular hand cleaning, hygiene and cleaning measures and handling potential cases of the virus as per the advice, then the risk of transmission will be lowered.
As before, we will ensure regular hand washing. Children will wash their hands together on arrival and in between each transition. We use visuals to remind children to be extra vigilant and thorough in their hygiene routine.
State of the art air filters
Each classroom is equiped with an air filtration system.
Swiss-made state-of-the-art air filtration, made by IQAIR. Their HyperHEPA filtration is tested and certified by an independent third-party lab to effectively filter 99.5% of harmful ultrafine pollution particles down to 0.003 microns in size. This is 100 times smaller than what is achieved with ordinary air filtration technology and 10 times smaller than a virus.
We also installed Radic 8 virus killer air sterilisers & purifiers. These machines are used in medical facilities and dentist surgeries in South Korea and are becoming increasingly popular here too. They work by using powerful UV lights (8 UVC lamps internally per machine), which kills any viruses – hence their “Virus Killer” title.
Regular cleaning of settings
Toys are cleaned regularly. We have a deep clean every single evening with professional cleaners, as well as regularly cleaning throughout the day.
