Easter Holiday Provisions

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

We are writing to you regarding travel arrangements over the coming Easter holidays in the light of current guidance from the UK Government on the Coronavirus. At present we are being told that only those who have been to Hubei, Iran or restricted areas of South Korea and Italy need to self-isolate for 14 days if coming to the UK. Those from China and a range of other countries listed on the UK public health websites need only do so if they become symptomatic – high temperature, cough etc. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus

Of course this could change at any time and whilst we understand children wishing to be with their families over the holidays we must also urge caution and note that any travel plans may be subject to further restriction and isolation requirements. After a great deal of consideration we are unable to support any boarders’ self-isolating in School and will not be able to remain open during the Easter holidays. Therefore we strongly encourage our pupils to either remain in the UK over Easter or to at least factor in self-isolation plans and timings upon their return. This is particularly important for those with public exams starting almost as soon as the Summer Term begins.

We have on our website a list of possible residential courses and boarding schools which may be able to help with your Easter plans and accommodation arrangements. They can be found here:

 

We will do our best to keep you informed but we strongly encourage you to monitor the news and guidance from the UK Government as information is changing on an almost daily basis.

Best wishes

Simon Smith

Head of Boarding

亲爱的各位家长及监护人,

学校根据目前英国政府对新冠病毒的指导,就即将到来的复活节假期的旅行安排与您写信沟通。目前,我们被告知,去过湖北、伊朗或韩国和意大利限制地区的人,如果来到英国,必须要自我隔离14天。英国公共卫生网站 上列出的来自于中国其他省份和其他国家的人,只有当他们出现发烧、咳嗽等症状也需要自我隔离14天。https://www.gov.uk/guidance/travel-advice-novel-coronavirus

当然,我们也请各位随时关注信息的更新变化。虽然我们理解孩子们希望在假期与家人团聚,但我们也必须提醒他们谨慎行事,并注意任何旅行计划都可能受到进一步的限制和隔离要求。经过认真全面的考虑,我们无法支持任何寄宿学生在学校的自我隔离,学校也无法在复活节假期开放。因此,我们强烈建议学生们在复活节期间留在英国;或者在他们回来后至少考虑到自我隔离计划和时间。这对于有公共考试的学生来说尤为重要,因为各项考试即将在夏季学期初就陆续开始。

我们在学校的网站上列出了寄宿课程和寄宿学校,这些课程和学校可能有助于您的复活节计划和住宿安排。您可以在https://www.rolemodels.me/courses/boarding-courses/easter-life-skills-and-academic-boarding-course/

找到相关信息,我们将尽力随时通知您。

我们强烈建议您随时关注英国政府的新闻和指导,因为信息几乎每天都在变化。

致以最良好的祝愿

寄宿部主管西蒙·史密斯
