Summer Term and Step 3 of roadmap out of lockdown

All pupils are now attending school full time and we have no-one needing to shield.

The majority of staff who are able have had both of their vaccinations and a number of pupils over 18 have also.

Staff and many pupils are also doing lateral flow tests twice per week.

There are no changes to actions to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and staff will still be wearing face coverings in communal areas, but not while working with pupils

If we get a positive case in school, we will continue to close the affected bubble for 10 days.

Your support in keeping children with symptoms off school and getting Covid tests is important to protect the whole school community.

Health professionals have been working in school for some time, all visitors are expected to take lateral flow tests before visiting school and are wearing appropriate PPE when necessary.

We are still limiting other visitors except some potential parents and families and professionals for pupils who will be joining us in September.

We will be allowing volunteers into school after half term, they provide important extra help and support in our classes. They will all take lateral flow tests the morning of the day with us.

We have updated our Safeguarding Policy during this period to ensure we have robust systems in place to safeguard our children and all staff are aware of how to respond to concerns.

For parents of children currently attending it is essential that if your child or anyone in your household shows symptoms of coronavirus you do not send them in, inform us and begin following self-isolation rules outlined below.

Advice for households that have run out of soap/handwash – you can use Shampoo or Washing Up Liquid and both will have the same affect when used for at least 20 seconds.

Advice on the NHS 111 website:

For Pupils, Staff and Visitors – Stay at home if you have and of the following symptoms:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
  • unexplained loss of taste and/or small

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital when you have the above symptoms.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. You should only call them if your symptoms become beyond what you can control/tolerate, your symptoms become worse quickly or if you are still unwell after 10 days of symptoms

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms and live on your own, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people, you all should stay at home for at least 10 days from the day the first person got symptoms. If you subsequently get symptoms, you need to restart your 10 days of isolation.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
