Coronavirus Information

Morning drop off arrangements

With cases of Covid rising and the Government increasing restrictions, we want to ensure that the school remains open as long and as safely as possible. So from Monday 5th September, children should be dropped off at the school gate either at the front of the school or at the back and then walk into the grounds on their own.

 

Please ensure that your children walk through the gates between 8.40 and 9am, which is the schools start time - no earlier. There will be a member of staff at the gate to supervise the children as they come onto site during these times.

 

If you need to talk to an adult please see the member of staff at the gate or alternatively phone or email in and your child’s class teacher will contact you.

 

We would be grateful if parents could be mindful about social distancing and not arrive on the school grounds  early/stay at the gates once their children have gone onto the playground.

 

If you need to enter the school site, you should always wear a mask.

 

 Afternoon pick up arrangements

At the end of the day, children should be collected from the designated area for your child’s class.

 

  • One adult per family to collect.
  • Masks should be worn by adults on the school site.
  • Please can parents ensure they don't arrive early and then please leave the school site as soon as they have collected their children.

 

What happens if my child has to isolate / remain at home?

We have curriculum work on our school website and this is updated by the teachers with whatever work is happening in your child’s class that week. New work is added to the website every week.

 

So, in the event of lockdown / self- isolation your child can still keep on track with work in their class. Please see the year group curriculum pages.

 

What happens in the event of a confirmed positive case in school?

The school will seek advice from the Department for Education in the first instance. Following this it is highly likely that we would need to shut down the class bubble where the positive case had occurred. Parents would be expected to keep their children at home for a period of 14 days and follow government guidelines in terms of self isolation.

Further details of how work could be accessed for children would be sent to parents at this time.

NHS guide for parents

 

When your child is ill or injured, it can be difficult to decide if/when to call your child's GP, NHS 111, or go to the Accident and Emergency Department. While the Government is asking everyone to stay at home, it can be confusing to know what to do. The below guide provides some information on what to do if your child is unwell.
