COVID-19 Updates & Info

October 2020

September 2020

We are really excited about having all children back in school from September. We have missed them very much. So that school safe for their return, we have made some changes. Please read the information attached carefully and talk to your child about what they can expect. 

  • Children come back to school on Tuesday 8th September 2020
  • Start and finish times will be normal and gates will open at 8.40 am
  • The children will be in year or class size pods. The children in each year or class pod will play together at break and playtimes. They will not interact with children from other pods
  • Please try and limit contact with other children not in their year or class outside of school
  • Children will be shown how we all need to behave: e.g. washing hands; tissues to catch it; bin it; kill it; smiles and waves not high fives and holding hands
  • Children will wash hands regularly during the day
  • A full range of classroom resources will be available to children and regularly cleaned. Pens/pencils for KS2 children will allocated to each child
  • We have two full-time cleaners who will clean frequently-touched areas / toilets etc. during the day
  • Each classroom will have a deep clean at the end of the day and shared resources will be cleaned as well
  • The school will be ‘deep cleaned’ every Saturday using a special mist
  • Obviously, if your child or any member of your family is displaying signs of COVID 19, you will need to keep your child at home and let the school know. If NHS 111 recommends it, you will need to take your child to be tested as soon as possible and let the school know of the result. The child’s class will also remain at school unless the child tests positive.  If the result is positive, all members of the pod will need to isolate for 14 days
  • Where a staff member tests positive, the class will be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days. Other household members of this wider group do not need to self-isolate unless their child starts to have classic symptoms
  • Children who become ill with symptoms of COVID 19 will be isolated in school in a small room by the office and parents will be called immediately. Staff supporting a child with these symptoms will wear PPE
  • We would ask that you check your child does not have a temperature every morning before sending them to school
  • Apart from the After-School Club and Breakfast Club, there will be no after school clubs until at least after half-term

Many thanks
