iSchool is a private British school operating in Olomouc

From Monday 25/May the school will be opened again!

Thank you for filling in the short questionnaire and confirming your child´s return to school. The school will reopen for Years 1 to 6 on the 25 May. Here is some important information.

  • Lessons start at 8 am so please bring your child to school at the usual time.
  • Parents will bring their children to the entrance which has been assigned to be used by their class only. The map is attached below. Logically it is the entrance closest to your child’s classroom. All children and parents must be wearing a face mask during the drop off.
  • Drop off your child directly at the door where the class teacher will collect him/her. Hand in the Sworn Statement form to the teacher. A copy of the form is attached below. The class teachers will also have spare copies. However, we would appreciate it if you could fill in the form beforehand. Without this form your child will not be allowed in.
  • Your child needs to be wearing a face mask and bring at least one spare one in a plastic bag to change during the day if need be.
  • On entering the classroom each child will sanitize their hands under the teacher’s supervision. The younger pupils will be helped by the teacher or an assistant.
  • Parents are not allowed to enter the school building with the exception of prearranged meetings with teachers or the school management.
  • Lessons finish at 1.50 pm when the children need to be collected at the same door as in the morning. Those pupils that are allowed to leave on their own can do so.
  • We would like to ask everyone to leave the school premises when the children have been collected.
  • The timetable for Years 1 to 4 remains the same as before the school‘s closure. Instead of PE there will be various activities decided upon at teachers‘ discretion. We would prefer it if those lessons were spent in the open air.
  • The Year 5 and 6 timetables have only changed in terms of the timings of subject slots rather than subject distribution on each day (with the exception of no PE). Mathematics, English, Czech, vlastivěda and IPC remain in the timetable on the same days as before.
  • The Primary School children who are staying at home (7 of them) will take part in online sessions according to the arrangement with their teachers. They will be doing the same type of work as their classmates.
  • Year 7 and 8 will be given a new timetable which is organized in a way that makes it possible to stick to even after the older students start attending school again. We expect this to be allowed officially in June.
  • The Flexi programme students will receive instructions from their teachers – their classes are run on an individual basis.
  • During the first week back at school the Primary School children will be given no homework requiring parental assistance.
  • One of the aspects that make the school international is the staff, which makes it impossible for us to stick to the one-teacher-per-class rule (in Czech lessons, for example). Specialist subject teachers will teach their classes with a face mask or face shield on, they will keep a safe distance and on entering and leaving the classroom they will sanitize their hands thoroughly.
  • Lunches – all the order forms received from parents have been sent to the ZS Reznickova canteen. If you have not received the log-in details to get to the strava.cz ordering system, please contact the provider on 585311068, 588505048 (supervisor) or 734570729, 588505049 (assistant).

Please be aware of the following change – your lunches have to be ordered by you on strava.cz. Lunches are not ordered automatically as stated in an earlier email. Unfortunately the school received this piece of information at a late date.

During this week the school is being cleaned and disinfected thoroughly. We are doing our best to make the school environment as safe as possible for the children. Further disinfecting will take place in the course of each school day.

We are sure you understand that at this point in time it is impossible to open the ASC. In pressing cases it might be possible to arrange individual after-school supervision, subject to management approval. However, we would like to reserve this for emergencies only.

Dear parents, we would like to express our gratitude for all your support during the school’s closure. We would also like to thank to those of you who have supported the school financially and thus contributed to improving the conditions leading up to the reopening. All your contributions and gifts will be used to benefit your children.

The sudden closure of the school has tested the ability of all of us to adapt to non-standard circumstances, and the quality of the cooperation between the school and its principal partners – the parents. We appreciate all your suggestions and ideas, and also your patience and understanding. We look forward to our future cooperation.

Why should your child attend iSchool?

They will gain perfect knowledge of English.

Your child will become a global citizen with wide understanding of local and international topics.

We put a strong emphasis on the development on subject specific skills rather than on acquisition of knowledge.

Emphasis on skills development (not just memorising).

Individual approach; school’s ability to motivate for improvement.

Your child will be excited to come to school.

School philosophy

You are not buying success, you are paying for the school to monitor your child’s progress to their goals and motivate them to fulfil their potential.

We are not a selective school: we believe that everybody can be successful.
