Covid Guidance

Returning after off-island travel

Students returning to Jersey should follow Government of Jersey guidelines regarding isolation. Please do contact us if your daughter is unable to attend College because you are awaiting a test results or are isolating.

Attendance

All students should now attend JCG unless they are isolating due to recent travel or because they or a household member has symptoms of COVID-19 or there are other reasons for absence (such as shielding due to health conditions). Please notify us, as normal, if your child is unable to attend so that we are aware and can discuss this with you and make decisions about how best to support and educate your daughter.

Travelling to and from JCG

Students and parents are encouraged to walk or cycle where possible. School buses will operate at normal capacity with the introduction of additional public health safety measures that Liberty Bus have in place. When dropping your daughter off in the carpark, please do not congregate with other parents and maintain social distancing at all times.

Uniform

Your daughter should arrive to school wearing her normal full summer uniform. Please see below a link for ease: https://jerseycollegeforgirls.com/about-us/school-uniform-shop/

At least 2 metre physical distancing between all adults and between adults and children wherever possible should be followed. No physical distancing requirement between students in their year group.

Students from different year groups will be kept separate as much as possible. Therefore, please remind your daughter that she always needs to socially distance from students in other year groups, for example, when queuing for any food from the Dome.

Our Dome will be providing a normal service but will operate a smartcard payment policy only. No cash will be accepted therefore please ensure that your daughter’s card is topped up via our ‘TouchTopup’ system.

PE and Drama lessons

PE and Drama lessons will run as normal. Your daughter will need to bring her kit to school as our changing rooms will operate as normal.

Lockers

All students will be allocated a locker on the first day of term and these can now be used.

Routines

We will remind students about the increased hygiene routines. Students will be required to gel their hands and wipe desks at the beginning of every new lesson. Desks will be configured to comply with social distancing for our staff and all students will face the front.

Checklist for parents and carers

Monitor your child’s health and keep them home from school if they are ill.

Teach and model good hygiene practices for your children:

  • Explain that they should wash their hands with soap and water frequently. As a minimum, children should wash their hands, on leaving home, before and after eating, after using any shared equipment / resources, after using the toilet, after sneezing or coughing and on returning home
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitiser (with 60-70% alcohol content). Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.
  • Ensure waste (such as used tissues) is safely collected, stored and disposed of.
  • Cough and sneeze into a tissue or your elbow and avoid touching your face, eyes, mouth, nose.

Encourage your children to ask questions and express their feelings with you and their teachers. Remember that your child may have different reactions to stress; be patient and understanding.

Prevent stigma by using facts and reminding your children to be considerate of one another

explain to your child why it’s important that they must arrive and leave the grounds at their allotted time

let younger children know that parents are not allowed into the provision and they will say goodbye to them outside the door where they will be met by a member of staff they know

at pick up time talk to your child about trying to remember all their things

let younger children know that you will be waiting outside to collect them

Coordinate with the school to receive information and ask how you can support school safety efforts.

Checklist for children and students

1. Know that you are not alone and talk to someone you trust, like your parent or teacher so that you can help keep yourself and your school safe and healthy. Ask questions, educate yourself and get information from reliable sources. In a situation like this it is normal to feel sad, worried, confused, scared or angry.

2. Protect yourself and others

Wash your hands frequently, always with soap and water for at least 20 seconds

Remember to not touch your face

Do not share cups, eating utensils, food or drinks with others

3. Be a leader in keeping yourself, your school, family and community healthy

Share what you learn about preventing disease with your family and friends, especially with younger children

Model good practices such as sneezing or coughing into your elbow and washing your hands, especially for younger family members

4. Don’t tease anyone about being sick; remember that the virus doesn’t follow geographical boundaries, ethnicities, age, ability or gender.

5. Tell your parents, another family member, or a caregiver if you feel sick, and ask to stay at home.
