COVID-19 Information

 

Please be advised that this note is current as of 4th June 2020.

Despite the closure of the AEFE schools in the UK on the 16th of March, educational continuity has been successfully ensured in all schools, thanks to the commitment of all the educational community.

Since the beginning of this COVID-19 crisis, the schools have worked together and shared their best practices and plans in order to anticipate and respond efficiently to each new step, in line with the recommendations from the British authorities, and in close contact with the Service Culturel of the French Embassy and the AEFE.

It is in this same collaborative approach that the AEFE schools in London have reopened gradually starting from Monday the 1st of June 2020, in compliance with the instructions given by the local authorities and supported by the wishes expressed by many of the parents to return to school.

The way the school operates has been adapted to the strictest Government guidelines within the context of Covid-19 and the way we operate is different to the pre-lockdown (before 16th March) conditions.

The main objectives are:

  • To revive the social aspect of school for pupils as well as their continued education.
  • Review the key knowledge pupils should have, which may have been difficult to teach remotely.
  • Integrate the fundamental security measures to maintain a safe and healthy environment for pupils and staff.

The protection of every child and every staff members’ health is our upmost priority.  To this end, the staggered reopening of the school is happening alongside the implementation of protective measures. The reduction of the number of pupils in the common spaces and in every classroom will allow social distancing and our new cleaning protocol will minimise the spread of the virus.

A lot of protective measures have been implemented so that pupils can benefit from: socialising with each other, (which they have all missed so much during the lockdown), teaching and the educational support from their teacher and from a “school routine” that is so important to their wellbeing.
