School Update

LATEST NEWS:

Please see our Remembrance video below: 

 

 

 

Dear Parents and Carers, 

We hope you all managed to have a restful half term break.  The news on Saturday that we are all entering  into another National lockdown is bound to cause more anxiety and worry for so many families.  We are so relieved that at this point the lockdown doesn't include schools and we will continue to maintain normality and routine for your children. This includes continuing with Breakfast and Afterschool club. 

We are awaiting further guidance from the Government and will absorb and share any news with you as soon as possible. 

Our Remote Learning Plan can be accessed  here.  Following guidance,  we will be providing learning through online resources,  pre recorded films and links to learning sites.  Our EYFS and Year 1 pupils will communicate with the teacher via Tapestry and Year 2 pupils will use Google classroom.  We will not be providing live lessons as they are not appropriate for young children.  Please check the website under Teaching and Learning - Home Learning for the plans and do get in touch with us if you require any help with this or have any questions. 

Please could I remind you to social distance while picking up your child.  We are aware that there is sometimes congestion and we will try to ensure that your child is ready to go promptly when the door is opened.  Please also continue to wear a face mask. The start and end of day procedures are here, and may be subject to change.  Please help us by sticking to these guidelines and to the timings.  

It is very important that you let us know immediately if you or your child has symptoms.  If you are in any doubt  whether to send your child in to school, please do contact us first.  All children are expected to be in school unless unwell or isolating and normal registration will happen each day . 

We are sure that the next few weeks will bring challenges and we will most certainly see staff and children having to self  isolate.  This will result in bubbles of children staying at home.  We will do our very best and  we hope, as always, that we will have your support, even when difficult decisions will  have to be made. 

The latest Government advice regarding schools is below:

The school has prepared a comprehensive Risk Assessment, which can be accessed below:

Coombe Hill Infant School Risk Assessment for full reopening in September 2020

Please continue to support your child by talking positively about school, getting back into good  sleep routines and please try to avoid worrying them too much about the situation.  Please do let us know if you or your child are anxious about attending school.

You are no doubt aware of the government guidance as to what to do if you or your children develop coronavirus symptoms:

Stay at home for 14 days if you or any of your household have:

  • a high temperature of 37.8
  • a new continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. 

Please continue to reinforce the need to regularly wash hands and to catch and bin any sneezes or coughs.
