DCPPS Important Notices


Information and FAQs

Please see below for information and FAQs regarding the full reopening of school on Monday 8th March.  This information applies to all children, including those in Early Years and the children of Key Workers.


Covid Safety Measures and Rules

Dean Close continues to follow the guidelines and robust routines to ensure that Pre-Prep is a safe and healthy place and as low risk as possible.  Thank you all for supporting us, keeping to our guidelines, checking your children’s temperature daily and collecting your children promptly when they have temperatures or coughs – we do appreciate it.


We have been asked how these relate to bubbles at school and can confirm that the restrictions apply even if families / children are in the same bubble at school.


Parents are reminded that they should wear a mask when dropping off and picking up.  Thank you for your understanding.
