Health Safety COVID-19 Updates MORE

UPDATES JULY, 10TH 2020

Dear NISL families,

Hope you have enjoyed the beginning of the break, be it here in Lagos or abroad. Do keep us updated regarding your whereabouts so that we can plan accordingly for August resumption. It is becoming clearer and clearer to us that some families who were evacuated may not be able to travel back in physically by August and we appreciate fully that families here may have concerns about safety/opening.

NISL plans to physically open and resume curriculum on Monday 24th August IF the Government permits.

In this instance we would also SIMULTANEOUSLY offer a distance learning platform again for NISL students who cannot fly back.

We will be assuring all families here in Lagos with a child friendly video presentation for the children on how things will run physically in school; for example with individual work stations, sanitisation points, 2-metre distance tapes and set "bubbles". Human traffic will be limited on site and staggered drop off/pick up times will be shared. Further details concerning all of these safety measures and the deep clean programme will certainly be communicated nearer the time.

We are in a fortunate position to be able to confirm this early that indeed we will be able to offer online learning even if physically open as members of management can deliver lessons and we have qualified support teachers to hand. This will mean that Class Teachers and Teaching Assistants will focus on the children on site. No more than 15 children per class will be taught in one room so if needed, classes will spread into Specialist Rooms.

Of course, if the Governement further postpones the opening of schools, we will abide by such directive and all classes from the EYFS, ES AND DS will be offered a programme similar to that provided March 23rd to June 26th.
