a festive welcome in a Covid-Safe environment 

For Christmas 2020, we are working to help, not only our own students but those with other AEGIS-accredited guardianship organisations from UK Boarding Schools. Our aim - to provide a Covid-19 safe and secure environment to spend a warm and welcoming Christmas for the many students who are not able to travel home for the holidays this year.

Arts University Bournemouth - the perfect location

our commitment to keeping students safe and happy

This will be Christmas with a difference. Whilst we want students to have an enjoyable break, we are commited to keeping the centres healthy by reducing the risk of infection. With this in mind, the programme content has been adapted to ensure safety whilst offering a stimulating and enjoyable Christmas holiday. There will be some carefully organised and socially distanced excursions and all other outings will be on foot and supervised by a member of staff to ensure guidance is being followed at all times.

all students and staff Covid-19 tested prior to arrival 

A pre-arrival Covid-19 test is included in the price of the programme. Tests will be sent to your school by Kings and Bright World, a few days before arrival. This means all students will be able to relax more once they have arrived. Students must have a clear test no longer than 72 hours prior to the commencement of the course. All Kings Education staff will form a household prior to the course and will be tested prior to the arrival of students. 

single or twin rooms and household bubbles

All students will be in single or twin rooms with their own bathrooms where possible. Students will be assigned to a ‘household bubble,’ which will form a social group for the duration of the holiday. Each household bubble will be supervised by the same members of staff throughout the stay. Household bubbles will avoid mixing with other households at the centre. Household bubbles will be made up of students according to age group and gender. 

hygiene, cleaning and masks 

Communal areas will be cleaned daily and rooms deep cleaned weekly. Students will be encouraged to wash their hands regularly and there will be hand sanitiser stations situated throughout the centre. We will be ensuring good respiratory hygiene by promoting the NHS; ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach. Students will be required to wear masks whilst in corridors and on outings. 

social distancing 

All students will be encouraged to maintain a social distance of 2 metres. Where this is not possible, a distance of 1 metres should be maintained at all times. Meals will be staggered by household and activities will be designed to be fun and stimulating but will avoid close social contact. 

isolation and care if students develop symptoms

Whilst we are taking every precaution, if someone presents with Covid-19 symptoms, they will be isolated in our specially allocated isolation unit and a test will be arranged. All members of the household bubble will need to isolate until the test results are received. If the test is positive, all household members will isolate for 10 days. The student with Covid-19 will be cared for by a member of Kings Education staff and we will follow NHS and PHE guidance. 

Should the need for isolation occur towards the end of the Christmas programme, this may mean that students cannot return to their boarding school until they have undertaken a period of isolation. Kings and Bright World will continue to provide isolation facilities for students until the 10 day period is over, regardless of when isolation starts. This will be at our Bournemouth residence, if it spans further than 4th January. This will be subject to an extra nightly charge. 

Christmas-themed activities and outings

Activities are limited due, to the Covid-19 restrictions in place in the UK and the need for students to socially distance as much as possible within their household bubbles and always when in the proximity of other household bubbles.  

a socially distanced programme of activities

Activities are limited due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place in the UK and the need for students to socially distance as much as possible within their household bubbles and always when in the proximity of other household bubbles.  

Students will remain predominantly onsite throughout the programme, with plenty of time for relaxing, chilling out in their rooms or in the chill-out areas provided. There will be indoor activities arranged every day for those that want to take part and also outside activities in the large grounds of the residence. 

There are shops within easy walking distance. and if students do wish to visit the town centre or beaches. Any trips organised by Kings will be via private buses or taxis which will comply with our Covid-safe plan.
