Bright World Covid-19 support plan

our pledge to keep our students safe throughout the academic year

James and Lana Foster

We are pleased that having been working closely with our partner schools since March 2020 and whilst the UK is now learning to live with COVID, Bright World continues to work with schools to support students who may need to isolate. For those who were able to fly home this Summer, the Bright World Guardianship Care team continues to offer Pre-flight testing assistance and airport transfers for those who require this service.

Host family accommodation is available again this year to students during the Christmas break in the face of ongoing travel restrictions in some parts of the globe. Our residential programme operated by SCL International College in London has also proved popular.

In cooperation with our partner schools, agents and parents we have therefore formulated the following enhanced service plan.

Students who need to isolate with COVID-19

Whilst at school

We are liaising with schools to ensure that they will be isolating children who present with symptoms whilst in the boarding house. If a school has a situation whereby they cannot provide facilities to isolate a student and offer them care then Bright World will step in. This could include moving students ‘mid isolation’ if the period coincides with the end of term and the school is closing.

Our COVID-19 Isolation Care Plan

Bright World has been working closely with our professional host family network and now have a selection of fully risk-assessed host families to provide safe and secure isolation facilities. Read our full Isolation Care plan here.

If a child presents with symptoms while in a host family, then the host family will take full care of the student for the full period of their isolation and will arrange for appropriate medical assistance.

Christmas and Easter

Students outside AUB

Travel restrictions will inevitably mean that some students may need to stay in the UK during the longer holidays again this year.

We have therefore taken the decision to once again offer guardianship students the option of staying with a Bright World host family during Christmas and Easter if travel restrictions prevent them from travelling back to their home country.

We are also delighted to be able to offer a selection of holiday and revision programmes for students who would prefer this alternative option to homestay during these times.

Students flying home are required by some destination countries to have a COVIS-19 test before they leave the UK. Bright World can help.
