Coronavirus COVID-19

Coronavirus Update - 23.02.2021

We are very pleased to inform you that the Government has announced that ALL children will be able to return to school on Monday 8th March. We are really looking forward to seeing your children back in school and we are preparing our risk assessment to get ready for the full opening of school again. We will be strictly adhering to our Covid Risk Assessment, which is in line with the guidance from DfE and the LA. Children will continue to be taught in their bubbles and will not be able to mix with children from other year groups. Breakfast and after school provision will resume for parents that require this service.

You must tell us if someone in your household has Covid symptoms or has tested positive. Please do NOT send your child to school if they have been in contact with a symptomatic person or someone who has tested positive. This is VERY important as we want to ensure all our children and staff are safe at school. If your child is unwell with Covid symptoms, please do not send them to school. You can ring or email the school office to let them know. We will then advise you to take your child for a Covid test.

We would like to thank all the staff for their hard work and commitment during the recent lockdown and all the parents and children who have been busy learning at home, joining zoom lessons and accessing remote learning. Well done everyone, you have been amazing.

It will be lovely to see the children back at school enjoying their learning with their friends and teaching staff. We look forward to seeing you and your children on Monday 8th March. Please see staggered start and finish times and entry and exit points within the related documents section of this page.

Handwashing Guide

The very important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
