If someone in your house hold becomes symptomatic of coronavirus: with a new dry cough, a high temperature and headaches then everyone in the household should self- isolate for 14 days.
You will need to notify us in school if children are not attending because of self-isolation and must contact us on the first day, the first day of each subsequent week and on the 13th day prior to your child returning to school to confirm that they are fit and well and have no remaining symptoms. If your child has not made a full recovery they should not return to school.
If your child is currently off school on self-isolation they cannot return to school before 14 days.
Some families are keeping children off school who are perfectly well but there is a health concern with another family member. These decisions are taken by you as a family. In such cases we advise that you contact us and explain your concern. We can then make a note on your child’s attendance record. We will ask you to then contact the school at the beginning of each week to confirm that your child is safe.
Nearly all appointments and visits to school by outside agencies have been cancelled. Such agencies include: Early Help, Barnardos, Access & Inclusion, The Educational Psychology Service and School Nurse etc. If you have an appointment expect it to be cancelled.
The school is also now cancelling any non-critical meetings with parents and we will not be offering any new appointments for the foreseeable future. We ask that you don’t gather for any length of time on the yard at the end of the day and leave the premises promptly.
In school we are currently preparing to deliver learning via the Hwb digital Learning Platform so that our children can access learning activities online from home. This will be important if schools are directed to close in the future. We will provide further information on home learning in due course.
