Covid-19 News and Updates

Protocol for the Control of COVID-19 at Kingswood

Kingswood is working hard to minimise the risk of Coronavirus to our community as the gradual phased return of pupils takes place.

On this page we hope to provide updates and information about Kingswood’s continued preparedness, action and response to the Novel Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) for all parents, pupils and guardians. 

All Kingswood parents and pupils, please click here to view the Protocol for the Control of COVID-19 at Kingswood College microsite. You can also download the document as a PDF here.

Phasing in of returning pupils

The choice of returning to campus remains up to each and every Kingswood family and to support this, e-leaning will continue as the interim backbone of our teaching and learning model. 

As a school we have chosen a gradual approach to the phasing in of our pupils back to campus, one that will help them ease-in to the new routines – including the wearing of masks.
