  • COVID guidance for parents

In opening school, we have followed national and local guidance in minimising the risk of COVID infection to those on site through a number of measures and thorough risk assessment process. Our risk assessment can be found here.

The government is providing a catch-up premium fund to help us support our children in closing learning gaps created by lost learning time due to the pandemic. You can find the report on how we intend to spend this funding here.

Parents and families are asked to adhere to the following from school to support the health of our school community:

  • All adults and secondary aged pupils no longer are required to wear face coverings on site, however those that do should not be discouraged from doing so.

Suspected cases

If your child has any of the following symptoms;

  • A new or continuous cough; a temperature of 37.8 degrees or above; a change/ loss of their sense of taste or smell

If in school they  will be isolated in our sick bay with a member of staff and will be sent home immediately along with any siblings.

You will be asked to get your child tested and advised that your child cannot return to school until they return 2 negative LFt tests on days 6 and 7 after testing positive.

The following chart will help in this process:

Should there be 5 or more ‘linked’ cases within the school (same class/year group/ friendship or family groups etc) then Public Health will advise of next steps.
