Due to the ongoing situation with the outbreak of coronavirus, I would like to update parents about the current measures we are putting place in school.
Any child with a consistent cough and high temperature will need to be kept at home for the new period of 14 days. This also applies to siblings and if anyone else in the household shows these symptoms, even if the children appear currently healthy. There will be no concerns about levels of absence – so some of you may feel more comfortable keeping children off as precautionary measure. Please report this as you would normally by using the pupil absence line and saying that you are self-isolating with your family.
What we are doing to protect and support children:
• If a pupil feels ill with any of the described symptoms we will contact you immediately
• Increased cleaning of the school premises
• We are encouraging lots of hand washing - on arrival at school in the morning, after playtime and before and after lunch and providing extra soap and hand sanitiser.
• Cancelling External visitors from entering the site
• No whole school assemblies
• Lunch times are being managed to limit the number of children in the hall at any one time.
School staff will also be following the guidance regarding self-isolating which may mean changes to teaching staff.
What happens if the school has to close:
• A home learning pack (paper copy) will be sent home with your child for you to complete while they are not at school
• We hope children will continue to read daily
• Each class has a page on the school website which will be uploaded weekly with work/activities to complete:
• Each class also has a class email address for contact with the class teacher. Please use this if you have any queries regarding school work:
• We will only close if we are officially advised to do so or we do not have enough staff to run the school safely.
If you have any questions speak to Mrs Emma McGahey (Acting Headteacher)
It is important that we keep each other safe and help each other in anyway we can during these unprecedented times. If there is any advice or guidance that school can offer please ask.
