Care & Support for Children

Care & Support for 5 to 11 Year Olds

At Lexis we put the safety and security of your child first.

Very young students (aged 5-11) can only be taught in closed groups (maximum 3 students) or private lessons and must be chaperoned by their parents/ guardians/ grandparents.

There is no supervision outside class times and so 5-11 year olds must be accompanied to/from the school by their parents/ guardians/ grandparents.

Trained first aiders are present all the time on the school premises.

Parents or guardians can arrange to speak to the Welfare Officer during normal school hours (9:00am – 5:00pm) to discuss any problems.
