Pandemic Response Policy

Guiding Principles

  • The public health measures in kura mean that the risk of transmission of COVID-19 is reduced. There will be some students and/or staff, with complex needs, who may be at higher risk for adverse outcomes from COVID-19.
  • There are significant benefits for students to be in school – from educational, social and hauora perspectives.
  • A pragmatic approach to identifying the level of contact will be taken.
  • The approach aims to support learning as we transition to a minimisation and protection approach across the country.
  • We recognise that different students/staff will need different levels of assistance to ensure equitable health and educational outcomes at any time, and particularly while managing COVID-19 within our school setting.
