COVID-19 Protocols

Recommendations will be followed-maximum number of 10 children in a classroom and a minimum teacher-to-student ratio of 1:8 to ensure staff can assist their colleagues with breaks, relief and other support where required. This staffing ratio can include the use of relevant support staff.
