This information was updated on the 28th February 2022 (including our risk assessment- see below)
Any updates to this information will be updated on the weekly newsletter. Please read this information carefully.
-Whilst the legal requirement to isolate has ceased, advice from the UK Health Security Agency is still to stay at home and avoid contact with other people. You can read the guidance here. Government guidance will be updated on the 1st April.
-If your child has Covid-19 symptoms (or anyone in their household) they need to isolate and do a PCR test. These can be booked through the NHS Test and Trace website or by calling 119. You are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people while you are waiting for the test result.
-If your child has a positive LFT they should isolate and you should inform the school immediately.
-Schools are no longer being asked to conduct routine contact tracing. If we do have a positive case in your child’s year group we will inform parents and NHS Test and Trace may work with the parents or carers of the positive case to identify close contacts.
-Normal drop off times and collection times will continue. Nursery doors open at 9am, end of the day collection is 3pm. Reception to Year 2, doors open at 8.50am and children collected at 3.15pm. KS2 children, doors open at 8.40am and children collected at 3.20pm.
-Any visitors to the school will be asked to wear a face covering. We are asking that all parents wear a face covering on the playground. If you are exempt, please ensure you social distance from other parents and staff.
-We reserve the right to amend our school restrictions in the case of high community transmission.
If your child is positive, please contact our office by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know which remote learning package you would prefer, either:
A) All the work being completed in school will be uploaded to your child's Microsoft Teams page. You will find the work in the files section.
B) A printed pack of activities which can be picked up from the main office the next working day. Teaching materials will also be available in the files section of your child's Microsoft Teams page but do not need to be printed.
All isolating children are invited to a live session everyday (please see your child's class team page for the exact times) and an assembly on a Friday at 2.45pm.
If your child is joining in with the live reading session then they should be wearing headphones. This reduces the distraction for them and enables them to concentrate better.
Please note that remote learning is only offered to children who are isolating with Covid-19.
