Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Move to Step 3 on 17 May

On Monday 10 May, the Prime Minister announced that the country will move to Step 3 of the roadmap on Monday 17 May. Please find our revised Summary of Preventative Measures HERE.

Pupils returning to school

All pupils (2-14) will be returning to in-school learning from Monday 8 March 2021. Further information will be shared via email, including updates on lateral flow testing for our secondary school aged pupils.

Reporting positive Covid-19 test results

To report a positive Covid-19 test result, please email reception@cambridge-steiner-school.co.uk. Please report positive cases, even if your child is remote learning.

Government Update

On 27th January the Prime Minister announced that it will not be possible to resume face-to-face learning immediately after the February half-term and instead hopes it will be safe to commence the reopening of schools and colleges from Monday 8 March. This is in response to the national public health data and pressure on NHS capacity.
Education settings, as well as students, parents and carers will be given at least two weeks notice to prepare for a return to face-to-face education.
Schools and colleges will remain open to vulnerable children and young people and the children of critical workers after February half-term, as they are now. All other pupils will continue to receive high quality remote education at home. This is in line with the wider national lockdown measures to help minimise the spread of the virus and respond quickly to the new variant.
Early years provision should continue to remain open throughout and should continue to allow all children to attend full time or their usual timetabled hours.

Critical Worker and Online Learning Provision

Cambridge Steiner School is open for all pupils who have a confirmed place as the child of a critical worker or as a vulnerable pupil.
In keeping with government guidance, our Kindergartens remain open to all children under statutory school age.
All other pupils are being taught via our home learning (remote teaching) system and should not come into school. For more information on our home learning provision across the school, please click here.

School tours

In-person tours of the school and kindergartens will not be taking place at the current time. However, you can view our recent film about life at our schools, or visit our Lower School and Early Childhood web pages for more information. To make an enquiry please fill out our online booking form, or email our Admissions Coordinator Rebecca Mitchel directly: admissions@cambridge-steiner-school.co.uk
