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.


Strict lockdown rules are now in place and can be found here:


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.


Contact Details

If you move house, change your email address, or home / mobile telephone numbers, please inform Lesley or Katie in the Pre-Prep Office as soon as possible.  It is essential that we have your current contact details so we can contact you without delay in cases of child illness or emergencies.
