Yesterday, 22nd February the UK government announced how the current lockdown in England will be eased, starting with the return to face-to-face education from 8 March. The Prime Minister Boris Johnson called it the roadmap out of lockdown.
Lexis is currently reviewing its risk assessments and prepares for a secure and safe return to face-to-face learning on the 8th March.
We will operate safe learning and working environments for students and staff in accordance with Covid-19 secure guidance, which English UK will update in line with published government guidance.

Next Monday, 22nd February the UK government is set to reveal its ‘roadmap’ for gradually easing restrictions and moving out of lockdown in England.
Like everyone else, we at Lexis are awaiting this announcement with anticipation, as we expect to be told when state schools will be allowed to reopen. Following this, and based on the latest updates and advice from English UK, we hope to soon be in a position to publish our own plan for reopening on our website.
Therefore please check back soon for further news on this.

On 14th February, the UK government announced that more than 15 million people in the UK had received their first coronavirus vaccine. This means that it has met its target to vaccinate the top four priority groups of the most vulnerable people
Prime Minister Boris Johnson called it a ‘significant milestone’.
Here at Lexis, we welcome this news as further proof that the UK is leading the way in the fight against Covid-19.
5th January 2021
On 4th January the UK government announced a new national lockdown in England from today. This includes closing all primary and secondary schools until February half term (until 14th February).
Although private English language schools like Lexis are not under the direct control of the Department for Education, we follow the guidance given by English UK (the national association of accredited English language centres in the UK) and we fully support the government’s decision to close schools to minimise the spread of Covid.
As a result and in line with the UK government guidelines, we are temporarily moving all our classes online, with the same number of lessons per week as in school. If students do not wish to transfer to online courses, they will be offered a credit note valid for two years from the course start date.
Not all news is bad news! As you know the UK Government is carrying out a massive vaccination programme and we hope that this will enable the world to return back to normality. In fact, we are counting on it!
However, our school office remains open Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. If you have any questions you would like to discuss, call the office on +44 208 346 9802 or request a Zoom call by emailing on email@example.com. We are here for you.
Here at Lexis our priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our students and staff members. We will therefore continue to monitor the situation and act in accordance with advice from the government and English UK and will post further updates as necessary.
