CORONAVIRUS UPDATE - Returning to school guidance

Dear Parents and Carers, 

We are so glad to have the children back in school. Thank you to all parents and carers for your help and support in maintaining our social distancing procedures. Please keep reading the updates in our weekly emails.

The latest Government advice regarding schools is below:

We intend to make the school day as normal as possible for your children and it is so important that they all now return to school.  It is expected that all children are in and registers will be taken, the exceptions are pupils where family members are displaying symptoms and /or self isolating or if in quarantine following a visit to the countries on the government list.  It is important that you let us know if your child falls  into either category so that we can register accurately, evidence may be required.  Please contact the School Office as soon as possible if you fall into these categories.

We have attached  start and end of day procedures for September Here These may be subject to change.  Please help us by sticking to these guidelines and to the timings.  We all have a responsibility to ensure the safe return to school.

Full school uniform is expected and children will need a PE kit, which will be left in school.  Please label all uniform, including shoes, trainers, lunch-boxes and bottles.

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.  Most of your children were in school in the Summer term and they are used to the hand washing routines, eating in classrooms and so on.  They adjusted so well then and adapted remarkably well to the new arrangements and so we have every confidence that they will manage to do this again. Please do let us know if you or your child are anxious about the full time return to school.

Our staff have set up the classrooms, prepared resources and planned exciting things for the new term ahead. 

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

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.
