In accordance with government guidance, our school is partially open. The majority of children are learning at home, using Google Classroom, supported by live teaching. Some children, mainly those who are children of critical workers, are learning in school, in year group bubbles and supported by a member of classroom staff.
If your child develops any of the following symptoms, you must not send him/her to school:
a high temperature
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot, for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – this means they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
The Government guidance states that if your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus you should:
Get a test to check if they have coronavirus as soon as possible.
Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get the test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get the result.
Please keep us regularly informed with details of the absence and the results of any COVID-19 tests.
If your child develops coronavirus symptoms while at school, we will:
reassure and support your child to avoid distress
isolate them in a safe, but comforting place where they will be with an adult at all times
phone you immediately and ask you to collect your child straight away and then follow the guidance above
If you have concerns about how your child is coping in these difficult times, we will support you in any way we can. Please speak to your child’s teacher or to Mrs Ashley (Family Liaison). You can also find help and advice on the following websites:
