Covid-19 Provisions

Please note that in being a part of this programme your child will be part of the Acorns & Oaks cohort in addition to their class cohort. Therefore, if there is a positive Covid case in either of their cohorts, they will be required to follow BISW’s quarantine protocols. Furthermore, if there is a positive case in their Acorns & Oaks cohort and not their academic cohort, children will not have the option of a synchronous online learning provision as their teacher will be in school.
