Our response to the measures ordered by the Czech government is focusing on students’ learning.
Until announced otherwise Preschool (Lions, Nursery, Reception) is closed from Wednesday 18.3. In case of any changes we will inform you without delay. As informed in the email communication, you can apply for funding to care for children under 10 years old. More details below.
Primary & Lower Secondary (Y1 - Y11) - We have confirmed the fact that the directive issued by the Health Ministry is also applicable to all foreign schools in the Czech Republic providing compulsory school education according to the article 38. Act no. 561/2004 Col. Therefore, the primary and lower secondary schools must remain closed as ordered by national authorities.
FINANCIAL SUPPORT FOR PARENTS/CARERS
It is possible to apply for state financial support if you, as a parent, must stay at home with a child who is younger than 10 years old due to closure of the child's educational setting. There is an electronic version of the relevant application form that can be accessed here: Application form.

TUITION FEES REIMBURSEMENT
Since the closure of the school has been ordered by the national authorities we are currently investigating financial impacts on the school from the business and HR point of view. We have not been able to gather all the information from all relevant sources and government offices. As soon as we are clear about the course of action, we will inform you without delay. Currently, we must put children first and we are working hard together with our teachers to see how we can support their education.
DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM IN PRIMARY/LOWER SECONDARY
As we do not know for how long the directive will be in action, we want to continue developing a distance learning program for all students. At the moment all class teachers and subject teachers have been asked to continue assigning work via emails to all learners. In addition, we are prepared to organize and run regular both individual and class sessions using the Lifesize video conferencing tool. This may enrich the program greatly and provide support to you as parents and also to learners. The objectives of the individual and class conferences are to: take away some pressure from parents, check and review progress with tasks and assignments and to provide children opportunities to interact with teachers and each other. Please, support your children in allowing them to use a computer with a webcam and headset.
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.
