Repton Abu Dhabi has confirmed the reopening of its FS1 classrooms from Sunday, 6th September 2020. In adherence to ADEK regulations, Repton Abu Dhabi will accommodate 10 FS1 students per classroom at any time.
FS1 will reopen with 50% children in the morning and 50% in the afternoon in order to ensure students receive a safe and healthy face-to-face learning experience in a hygienic manner. Classrooms will be limited to 10 children per session and parents will receive schedules of the classroom sessions to accommodate their preferences; children will continue the rest of the school session through Repton Abu Dhabi’s outstanding Remote Learning provision from home.
Kevin Hannah, Head Teacher at Repton Abu Dhabi says, “We are excited and happy to welcome our students back to school this week. It is a testament to all members of the Repton Abu Dhabi community, working diligently with continuous enthusiasm and professionalism to meet all guidelines set by ADEK to ensure a successful start to the school year. We promise to make the year fun and full of fabulous learning opportunities, working closely with smaller student groups and helping children settle and receive individualised attention in a safe environment.”

- Morning session- 8:30 am – 10:30 am
