Our plans relating to the Government’s Education Tier System


The national and local situation with covid-19 (coronavirus) continues to change. This document is designed to outline our approach to possible local restrictions that could be put in place.


Barnet is not yet subject to any national interventions, but we need to ensure we are ready if anything changes in our local context. The government has outlined a tiered approach that schools must follow if there is a covid-19 outbreak and the steps we should take in each scenario. This is different to the national levels of restrictions which include medium (1), high (2) and very high (3).

The local authority and public health officials will inform us if we are moving to a new tier. To be clear, these decisions will not be for our school to make. 

Current Local Restrictions for London: High (Level 2)

Current Education Tier: Tier 1
