In our ongoing efforts to remain safe for both pupils and staff, Ackworth School is pleased to announce that it has joined the Boarding Schools Association (BSA) COVID-SAFE Charter. The Charter ensures that the School is not only strictly adhering to government guidelines, but also meeting a number of BSA requirements; taking into consideration both day students and boarders.
A high priority of the School has always been the safety of pupils, staff and families – this has become particularly relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic, a sentiment echoed by the director of marketing and admissions, Tom Shennan-Barker:
“Adopting the COVID-SAFE charter further solidifies our commitment to provide a safe and secure environment where pupils can learn without undue anxieties or fears. As part of our commitment, we are ensuring that when our boarders are able to return, that they do so with assurances of their health and safety.”
The global situation is evolving, and the phased reopening of schools is an emergent process. With this in mind, Ackworth School will continue to take a proactive rather than reactive stance wherever possible, looking to tackle potential issues before they arise. The School has a robust, thorough and saleable COVID-19 strategy, reinforced with the BSA safety charter.
