The Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA), of which Kent College, Canterbury is a member, has published a COVID-Safe Charter which provides boarding schools with a framework on how to safely reopen at the current time.
Kent College, Canterbury has undertaken to adopt the BSA Covid-Safe Charter and to ensure full compliance with any Government quarantine or self-isolation requirements. These include cleaning, testing, staff training, the provision of effective communication with staff, pupils and parents as well as a range of measures which ensure good practice in relation to hand hygiene, and the wearing of masks when appropriate and social distancing.
We will continue to ensure the safety of our community, students and staff and fully support the measures outlined in the Charter. Not only will this help to enable us to prepare for welcoming some of our Year 10s and Year 12s back on to the Senior School campus this term but it will ensure that we are fully prepared for reopening the whole site in September.
Dr David Lamper said “We are committed to ensuring that all of our pupils can return to school safely in September and the BSA’s Covid-Safe Charter is an important way of giving parents, pupils and staff the confidence that we are following the guidelines to ensure that our boarding houses, and the School more broadly, will be a safe environment.”
