BSA COVID-Safe Charter
Canford signs up to BSA COVID-Safe Charter
Canford is a member of the Boarding Schools’ Association (BSA) and has been working closely with the organisation throughout the COVID-19 outbreak. The BSA has published a COVID-Safe Charter and Canford is proud to follow this and pledges to ensure full compliance with all Government rules and guidance to meet the requirements stated in the Charter.
The BSA COVID-Safe Charter has been created to give parents and pupils confidence that a school is taking appropriate measures to ensure that the classrooms and residential accommodation are a safe place to live and work. By officially following the Charter, as a boarding school we will be maintaining the highest standards of welfare for the children in our care. Included in the Charter are requirements prior to reopening schools, procedures for both domestic and international pupil arrivals and appropriate measures to adopt for all pupils and staff while in school.
Headmaster Ben Vessey commented:
“The safety, health and wellbeing of our pupils and staff remains our top priority. We will continue to liaise closely with the BSA to ensure that we have all the required procedures and processes in place to reopen Canford safely and will make any further adjustments which are needed in light of further Government guidance as it is released.”
