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.


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



At this time, we ask that you do not give your child Calpol before coming to school, because this could mask any possible symptoms of Covid.  If you feel your child is unwell enough to need Calpol, or is quite unwell with a cold / cough, please keep them at home to ensure that we are as careful as possible.  Thank you.
