COVID - 19 Information

Control measures

The following control measures will remain in place:

✓ Ensure good hygiene for everyone, this includes hand washing and using the ‘Catch it, kill it, bin it’ approach for respiratory hygiene.

✓ Maintain additional cleaning measures.

✓ Windows and doors will be kept open to increase ventilation, but temperature will be considered to ensure a comfortable teaching and learning environment is maintained.

✓ Follow public health advice on testing, self-isolation and managing cases of COVID-19.

✓ Staff will continue to undertake twice weekly tests. This will be reviewed by the Government at the end of September.

 

Face coverings

Whilst it will be personal choice whether you continue to wear face coverings in the playground, we will be strongly encouraging their use for everyone’s safety.

 

What if there is a case?

Pupils, staff and other members of the school community should follow current public health advice on when to self-isolate and what to do.

They should not come into school if they have symptoms, have had a positive test result or other reasons requiring them to stay at home.

 

If someone in school develops COVID-19 symptoms, however mild, they will be sent home to follow advice on what they need to do next. Schools are no longer be required to undertake tracing responsibilities from July 19th.

 

From step 4, close contacts will be identified via NHS Test and Trace. However, from 16th August, children will no longer be required to self-isolate if they are contacted by NHS Test and Trace and identified as a close contact. Instead, they will be asked to take a PCR test.

 

 

Welcome back!

We understand that sending your children back into school can generate some anxieties. We want to reassure you that, as always, we will do our best to look after your children and the safety of your child and our staff is our top priority.  We have been very busy working to make school a safer place for the children and have followed all government guidance.   Equally important is ensuring that our children are supported in adapting to these new routines and rules and settle back into their school lives happily.

 

 

To help support this transition please find attached a story for all children to help them feel positive about returning to school.
