Covid safety policy
The following page outlines our Covid-19 safety policy. The purpose of this document is to inform our students and their families of the new measures we are taking and the expectations we have for their participation.
We will regularly be reviewing this safety policy, as well as our individual risk assessments to ensure we keep safety at the forefront of our operation and stay in line with government guidelines as they evolve.
