UPDATED 06/04      Easter Activities

In order to limit the spread of coronavirus COVID 19 school is shut for the vast majority of pupils for an indefinite time.


Thank you to everyone for your support in this challenging time. We have, and will continue to work hard to share all the information we have with you.

We would also like to offer a special thank you  to everyone in our school community who are part of the Coronavirus- COVID 19 critical response

Only the expected children of Key/Critical Workers and identified 'vulnerable children' will be admitted to school.

"Government advice is that the safest place for children is at home and education settings should only be used if there is no other alternative."

We are aware of, and will fulfil our duty to support critical workers. However  we want to keep numbers of children in school at any time as low as possible to minimise social contact and promote social distancing to help stop the spread of the Cornavirus- COVID 19 ... in this way we will be protecting the children of critical workers who are in school because they have to be.

  • Every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. Parents will not be penalised for choosing to keep their child at home.
  • On days you are not working you should keep your child at home ( including when your shift changes)
  • If your shift is not the length of a school day please collect your child earlier in the day. 

" the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society."

 

Practical arrangements for children who need to attend school 

  • Your child should wear school uniform.
    • Children must wear a clean school uniform each day they are in.  It is also suggested that children should washing and a complete change of clothes as soon they get home, before touching anything else to minimise the risk of the virus remaining on clothes .
    • Children should not wear jewellery
    • Children must have their nails cut short
    • Children must have their hair tied back
  • The school day times remain unchanged however we do ask that if your child only needs to be with us for part of the day you drop your child off and collect them accordingly.
    On the days your child  needs to come to school, please bring them to the school office and we will direct them to the area or classroom where they will be working .
  • All current safety guidelines will continue to be followed, this includes social distancing  and teacher to child ratios.
  • For practical, safeguarding and safety reasons it is very important that we know which children to expect in school each day.
    • Please give us advance notice of your shifts. If you need to contact us when the school office is shut you can contact us via mobile phone - 07398 037 082
    • Only send your child if you have told us you are going to.
    • If you are able to keep your child safe at home any day that we were expecting them then you must keep them at home but please can you phone in so we know not to expect your child.

To protect the school staff, your children and everyones families you must follow  the social distancing advice when dropping off and collecting your children including physical distance advice.

 

DO NOT bring your child to school if they have developed a new cough or fever . Your child must be isolated and must not not be in school in the 7 days folowing a new cough or fever or  for the 14 days following someone else in their household needing to self isolate.
