COVID-19

Key Information

All pupils are in school, following Government guidance, and with appropriate social distancing measures in place, including year group bubbles and zoned school areas, extra sanitisation and cleaning procedures, and face coverings being worn in communal areas.

At present, we are not able to run parent tours at our school sites, but will continue to carry out virtual tours for prospective parents and pupils. Please contact our admissions team for more details: admissions@ipswich.school

We remind everyone to follow the latest information available on the NHS website with regards to self-isolation and we have stepped up our vigilance for any child who appears ill at school. Information is available here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Continuity of education

Ipswich School has contingency plans in place for managing continuity of education, particularly if the school has to close. Parents will be informed directly if any of these plans need to be put into action, and have been informed of the different ways in which work may be set for pupils in the Senior School and the Prep School.

School Activities

Other school activities, such as sports fixtures and events, are running where possible in accordance with government guidance.
