ESE Guidelines – Covid-19 Transition Phase

Our school’s reopening is consistent with our country’s overall COVID-19 health response to protect students, staff, teachers and their families.  To this effect, we have implemented the below obligatory conditions to keep each other safe.

  • Students / Patrons will be subject to daily temperature checks at the entrance of the premises to check for the presence of fever.  Persons with a temperature of 37.2C or higher will be denied entrance.  The school will exercise the right to refuse entry onto the premises of patrons/students if they are visibly unwell or have respiratory symptoms.
  • Students should only be allowed on premises during the time of their allocated lessons.
  • Entrance to and exit from the school premises will be regulated and crowd management techniques will be adopted by our team.
  • There are to be no large gatherings inside the school premises.
  • Students and staff are always required to wear a face mask or visor outside of the classroom.  The visor or mask is optional in the classroom for the students and compulsory for the teacher.
  • The school will provide adequate and easily accessible containers with an appropriate 70% alcohol hand-rub at the entrance of the school and at strategic points on every floor to ensure that every person sanitises their hands on entry and exit.
  • Frequently wash your hands with soap and water after coughing or sneezing, before eating, after toilet use and when hands are visibly dirty.
  • Daily attendance of students will be taken for each classroom
  • The school will provide ongoing cleaning and sanitising of all the common areas and classrooms inside the premises using Ozone disinfection and sanitisation.  This cleansing method is 100% environmentally safe and is an extremely effective method to disinfect against bacteria and viruses.  Ozone kills bacteria about 3,200 times faster than chlorine making a more effective of sanitising.
  • Reception areas will be fitted in with glass barriers.
  • The school will keep a list and contact details (name and contact number) of all people accessing the premises.
  • All staff and students are encouraged to bring their own water.  Students on the Teen & Junior programmes will be provided with bottled water.
  • Contact our Welfare Team right away if you are feeling unwell or have COVID-19 symptoms.

It is important to take note of our School Emergency number: 00356 21373789.  Our Welfare Team is available 24/7.
