Reopening of School
To ensure that the return to school is as safe as possible, we have made a range of changes that we have previously communicated to you, and we will continue to review the arrangements we have put in place to maintain school as a safe environment.
To help us do this, we’d appreciate it if you could continue to support us in the following ways:
- If your child, or anyone else at home has symptoms of COVID-19 (a new continuous cough, a fever, or loss or change of taste or smell) the entire household needs to stay at home, and children cannot attend school. The person with symptoms will need to stay at home for 10 days, and all other household members needs to stay at home for 14 days. Anyone with symptoms should get a test for coronavirus via https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119. Please arrange a test as soon as possible, as early test results help us to protect our school community.
- Please inform us promptly if anyone in your household develops symptoms, and of any test results (positive or negative). If you need to contact the school to report an absence, we will ask about covid-19 symptoms and test results.
- If your child develops symptoms during the school day, we will need to isolate them away from the classroom, and ask you to collect them as soon as possible. Please make sure that you are contactable throughout the school day, and that the contact details we hold are up to date.
- Please ensure that you follow the social distancing arrangements that have been put in place, particularly at the start and end of the school day
We’d like to thank you in advance for your support in helping our school to remain safe and welcoming for all our children.
