Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear CIE student/ parents/ guardians/ agents,

We are open and continue to welcome students at CIE.
This information was updated on 22 June 2022.
Rules for arriving to the UK
When you travel to England, you do not:
  • need to complete a UK passenger locator form before you travel
  • have to take any COVID-19 tests before you travel or after you arrive
  • need to quarantine when you arrive

This applies whether you are vaccinated or not.

Other countries may have rules about what you need to do to leave the country to travel to England. You should check travel advice for the country you are travelling from.
What to expect in England
The government has removed remaining domestic restrictions in England. There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
  • Get vaccinated
  • Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
  • Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
Studying at CIE
CIE strives to meet high standards of care, and conduct regular risk assessments to help us keep students as safe as possible.
Face coverings in classrooms are not a legal requirement, but some students and staff choose to in some situations. Please respect this personal choice and please speak to us if you have any doubts or concerns.
Safety measures include:
  • Regular cleaning of classrooms and surfaces around the school
  • Always hand wash and use sanitiser 
  • Open windows and doors in classrooms
  • Under 18s: Avoid contact for 3 days if you have symptoms and are feeling unwell 
  • Over 18s: Avoid contact for 5 days if you have symptoms and are feeling unwell
