With the easing of lockdown measures nationally we know that many parents and carers will be still anxious about how we continue to ensure our school site continues to be COVID secure. Please be assured that no measures have been relaxed in school and we will be continuing to follow the protocols that are identified within our risk assessment. We are aware that across our city several schools are seeing outbreaks - so for the time being we will continue to be vigilant about our own procedures. We are emphasising this because this is in contrast to the messages about vaccinations and the lifting of lockdown. Public Health and our LA continue to advise us that people are being more relaxed about contact and this is leading to disruption caused by isolation in some settings. Thanks again for your vigilance during this time and for the continued help around the 'hands, face and space' messages that are vital to maintaining a COVID secure school.
PLEASE KEEP TWO METRES APART WHILST ON THE SCHOOL SITE AND AROUND THE GATES. PLEASE WEAR A FACE COVERING.
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 potential infractions and 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 getting back to school. We are thrilled to have made such a positive start to the summer term despite the COVID measures.
In the event you receive an email regarding positive cases in our school community 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get back to you support any of concerns that may impact upon attendance.
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.
Please be assured our school and local authority continue to monitor the changing situation with regard to Coronavirus COVID-19.
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.
