The following page contains up-to-date information about the schools response to COVID-19 and the plans moving forwards. It also has all of the recent communications as well as relevant government guidance and links. 

We are currently working with the Operational guidance updated for March 2022. 

Any child or adult who is showing symptoms of the coronavirus (becoming unwell with a continuous cough or high temperature, or has a loss of or change in their normal sense of taste or smell) are advised not to come into school.  We advise they are tested and the national guidance is followed.  

 

What happens if my child develops symptoms at school?

Any child (or adult) who develops symptoms in school will be supervised whilst we make contact with parents to arrange collection. We will then give direction to the parent about the current guidance and school risk assessments and how to access the COVID-19 testing system. 

What happens if a child in the group tests positive?

We will contact the local health protection team in the event of positive cases within school to share the details of the cases(s)

We will advise the parents of the current government guidance around the isolation advice. 

In consultation with the local Public Health team, where an outbreak in our school is confirmed, we will take advice on any further actions required.

What measures are in place around school?

We are implementing measures (all in the risk assessment) to ensure that the environment is as safe as possible. These include:

  • Having strict routines in place for good hand hygiene
  • Encouraging good respiratory hygiene through the catch it, bin it, kill it approach and regularly reminding and teaching children
  • Increased and more focused cleaning measures throughout the day and after school
  • Ensuring there is good ventilation in all classroom areas
Is Wraparound Care available?

Our popular wraparound (WAC) service will be open as per normal (AM from 0730 and PM up until 1800). Mrs. Lee and the team are very much looking forward to welcoming children in.

Can my child bring a bag?
Children can bring bags to school. Any hand sanitiser/hand cream should be labelled with the child's name and handed to the teacher.  
Does my child need a PE Kit?

Yes - We will be teaching PE and active sessions throughout the year so children will need their PE kits. 

PE however, will mostly be outside and we can't let the weather stop play too much so please ensure you send appropriate clothing on their PE day (you will know the PE day via the teachers). 

Does my child have to attend school?
Yes - School attendance is mandatory and we are looking forward to welcoming all children back. If you have any concerns or requirements and wish to discuss the return further, please get in touch and we will ensure we support all families as much as we can. Please see our Attendance Policy for further information.
Will there be after-school clubs?
We have a range of after-school clubs available now. Please see the communications about clubs.
