COVID Support

 

Please look out for communications from our school office regarding the cases within the school community currently and steps that may need to be taken. We continue to have a high regard for the risk assessments in our own setting. We continue to remain vigilant and you can support this by following the recommended guidelines when on site.

 

Thanks to everyone who has supported the children and staff. 

 

In the event you have COVID-19 symptoms within your household please follow the guidance outlined in the communication from Public Health England.

 

Please be aware that if anyone has any COVID related queries they should please get in touch via the admin@westerhope.newcastle.sch.uk. We will get back to you to support any concerns that may impact upon attendance.

 Remote Learning 

 

In the event of future school closures or if your child is isolating at home, we will again direct our parents and pupils to our Remote Learning pages.  For those still at home it is important to try to do keep engaged with the class in school. Our teachers will contact you via See Saw and support your child to learn at home. We are utilising the SeeSaw app to allow contact with our teachers. Our Remote Learning Lead will ensure you have access and will monitor engagement alongside the class teacher.  Please keep up to date with the Remote Learning webpage and communications via Parentpay. Please follow the link below. 

Recognising Symptoms - Cold or COVID?

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.
