On 19 May 2020, the Minister of Basic Education, Angie Motshekga, announced the National Coronavirus Command Council and Cabinet’s approval of the phased reopening of schools on 1 June 2020.

As a starting point, The Ridge School must provide and maintain, in so far as is reasonably practicable, an environment that is safe and without risk to the health and safety of our boys, parent body, teachers, staff and third-party visitors to the school, including within the context of the contagious and unpredictable Covid-19.

This Health and Safety Compliance Plan and Prevention Protocol document sets out the health and safety protocols and risk reduction measures the School has put in place to reduce the risk of the spread of Covid-19 at the School and provide a healthy and safe environment for learning and working.
