Following government guidance and in consultation with BSA, Buckswood School has put in place plans and procedures for operation of ‘in person’ learning across all year groups at school for academic year 2021-22.

As an independent school, Buckswood is not required to follow all guidance issued for state schools, but where possible is doing so. We have been advised to make plans that suit our unique setting and to ensure that any planning is approved by the school’s insurers and health and safety partners. Planning has been based around the government guidance,

Government Guidance

This planning is guided by the BSA Covid-Safe charter as well as government guidance on systems of controls (the set of actions schools are expected to take, based around the 2 tenets of ‘Prevention’ and ‘Response to any Infection’.)
