Covid-19 Update

 

We are in unprecedented times at the moment, as a school we have to follow the advice we are given by the government. Recently, the Government have laid out the next steps of delaying the transfer of the virus. As a senior leadership team we have discussed how this will look in school.

 

  • Any children or staff who are displaying symptoms of a high temperature or a new persistent cough should self-isolate and book a PCR test. Please inform school as soon as possible.

  • If a child presents in school with a temperature or has developed a new cough, they will be kept away from other children and parents will be asked to collect them as soon as possible and they will be asked to self-isolate and book a PCR test. 

  • Staff with significant underlying health issues have been advised to limit contact with other people.

  • Parents are encouraged to engage with the home testing which is available. 

 

With regards to general issues in school we have made the following decisions:

  1. We will continue regular handwashing throughout the day and the cleaners will be cleaning door handles and other hard surfaces more regularly.

  2. We would like to limit the number of non-staff adults who are coming into school, therefore if you wish to speak to your child’s class teacher please do this by phone or by email. I have listed all the teacher’s emails below. Teachers will only answer emails within their normal working day and when they are not teaching.

  3. We have made learning available on the website for children who are self-isolating and please contact your child's class teacher.

  4. We will have 2 year groups in collective worship rather than whole school

  5. We will have staggered breaktimes and lunchtimes.

 

All school staff will still be working even if self-isolating (unless they are unwell), and will respond to emails, if you have any questions or concerns regarding your children or their learning please do not hesitate to get in touch.

 

As a school we still have a responsibility to ensure that our children are safeguarded, and the Designated Safeguarding Leads will be checking in with some families if they are off school for extended periods of time as we would normally within school. The 4 Designated Safeguarding Leads are Miss West, Mrs Kirwin, Mrs Wright and Mr McLaren. If families feel they need access to food bank vouchers please contact Miss West or Mrs Sharp who can arrange this.
