COVID-19 Quick Reference Guide for Parents - What if...?

We know that making the decision whether to self isolate or send a child to school is difficult and sometimes confusing. The above guide will give parents and carers advice on what to do in particular circumstances. Please look at the 'what if' scenarios and the actions required by parents and carers. You will also see how school and other agencies should also react in order that wider infection control is supported.

Full Return to School in September 2020 

 

You will be aware by now that we all children will return on 8th September 2020. We are delighted that we can return to teaching and learning with 100% of our pupils in attendance. In order that everyone in school is safe (and the risk of transmission is low), we have attached a risk assessment document below that identifies the measures that will be taken by school staff. You will also have received information about expectations around drop-off times, pick-ups, lunchtimes and other areas related to the on-going COVID response as well as information specific to Nursery and Reception. Please consider all of these carefully in order that our return in September is as smooth and safe as possible.

For those attending please note our advice is that those with either a new, continuous cough or high temperature should self isolate for 14 days.  If your child is showing either of these symptoms, please keep them at home and ring the school office with the reason for absence. For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period. Anyone living in a household with a person with COVID-19 symptoms should also self isolate for 14 days. We continue to encourage the practice of good respiratory and hand hygiene at home and in school.
