Coronavirus Update

 

Please see attached letter from the Headteacher with an update on the School Closure due to Coronavirus. The school will be closed to the majority of pupils from Tuesday 5th January 2021 until further notice – Government guidance for parents can be found here guidance for parents.

The school is currently planning how to deliver rapid Covid testing, which will require parental consent. Further information is contained in the letter and we ask all parents to complete the attendance and consent form by clicking on the following link. The Covid Testing Privacy Notice can be found here.

A short guide for parents and pupils on Lateral Flow Testing can be found here.

 

The school has established a COVID Protocol  which follows the guidance issued by the Department for Education which can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools.

The principles we will follow to keep our pupils, staff and visitors safe are:

  • Making sure that people who are ill stay at home.
  • Making sure everyone practises good hygiene techniques, frequent and thorough handwashing, insistence on “catch it, kill it, bin it” for coughs and sneezes.
  • Cleaning the school even more intensively, with additional cleaning staff and equipment, paying particular attention to public spaces, toilets and touch points. We will all, staff and pupils, need to play our part in keeping our school safe.
  • Active engagement with NHS Test and Trace arrangements.
  • Adjusting school routines to reduce contacts amongst those on site. We will do this by keeping year groups separate as much as possible, particularly at the start and end of the day and at lunchtimes.

The best defence against Coronavirus remains regular and thorough washing of hands using soap and water. 

More advice is available at https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/

Anyone who suspects that they have symptoms of the Coronavirus should immediately isolate at home and follow the guidance published here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance.

The guidance is now 10 days not 14 days isolation.

Please see the attached Coronavirus and Your Child-What you need to know advice sheet produced by the Local Authorities.
