Our COVID-19 Measures

On this page you can find out all the latest information about the measures that we have put in place to protect our community from COVID-19.

Covid Measures

These measures have been developed based on the directives and guidance of:

  • The Dutch National Institute for Public Health (RIVM).

  • The Public Health Department (GGD Rotterdam-Rijnmond)

  • NAISR’s Senior Leadership Team, including Ms. Kim van Sickle, our school nurse.

  • Best practice shared by our 70 Nord Anglia sister schools.


 

Last updated: 24 August 2021, 11:00 (we recommend refreshing your page to check for updates):

  • Primary and Secondary School students are all on campus for face to face learning full time.

  • We follow the current advice which can be found Here.

  • Secondary students, staff, and visitors must wear a face mask on the school campus and when moving throughout the school building.

  • Parents and visitors may only enter the school building with a pre-arranged appointment. 

Our commitment to providing a quality learning experience for all our students is at the heart of every decision we make. For the school year 2021-2022, we are implementing a number of protocols that will enable our students to safely access their learning on campus. Our planning is based on two interconnected priorities that we have for this school year:

1. To ensure the health and safety or our students, our faculty, our staff, and our community.

2. To ensure continuity of learning for our students as they pursue growth and learning goals in the next year.

Based on local government and global best practice guidelines, our health and safety initiatives are focused on four key principles: Screen, Clean, Hygiene, Distance. We need your help and cooperation in making sure these measures are effective for the safety and wellbeing of our entire community.


 
The measures in place:
Screen
  • RIVM protocols and directions from the GGD will be followed.

  • Community education on self-monitoring of possible COVID 19 symptoms.

    • Sore throat

    • Coughing

    • Chills

    • Shortness of breath

  • It is strongly advised that anyone above 12 years old, with any corona related complaint receive a COVID-19 test through the GGD. How to get a COVID test

  • Students and staff may return to school when they are complaint free for 24 hours or have received a negative COVID test result.

  • Isolation and quarenteening advice after a positive test or close contact with a person who has tested positive will follow RIVM/GGD guidance.

Our Virtual School Experience

We opened the school at the start of the academic year with full classroom learning.

Whilst we believe that the measures outlined above will minimise the probability of any classroom closure, should this happen again we are well-prepared with the Virtual School Experience. 

We take pride in delivering an outstanding education to every student, tailored to their individual learning needs and inspired by the global best practice even in challenging circumstances.

We are ready and equipped to continue inspiring the students with innovative lessons, unique learning opportunities and high-quality teaching as part of our blended learning approach. Striking the right balance between on and offline learning time allows students to make the most of personalised learning from home, no matter what year group they are in.
