COVID 19 - children able to attend school during the Spring Term 2021 Lockdown

Please be aware that your child should not attend school if

  • they have symptoms of coronavirus. 
  • they have had a positive coronavirus test result themselves, or are self-isolating while awaiting results of a test.
  • they are self isolating because a member of their family has symptoms or confirmed coronavirus.
  • your family are in 14 days quarantine following a holiday abroad.

It is very important that if your child is not attending school as a result of these coronavirus reasons you contact us so that we can ensure the correct Public Health England procedures are followed.

Our absolute priorities are the health and emotional wellbeing of the children and the whole school community.

 

Please can we ask that you are mindful of the following mitigations that support social distancing and apply them whenever possible:

  • Each child should be brought to school by just one adult.
  • Please keep your child with you at all times at the start and end of the school day.
  • We have in place a clear one-way route through school which starts at the main gate and finishes at the nursery gate. 
  • Staff will welcome your children into the classroom in the morning. If you need to talk to your child’s teacher, please respect social distancing measures. 

 

Daily Times 

  •  We are asking that children attend for full school days on the days they attend as we believe this enhances there feelings of wellbeing in school and also enables the days learning to be delivered. ( Nursery children should attend for their usual session times)
  • Our times for Reception, Year One and Year Two are 8.45-8.55 arrival and 3.00pm collection

What does my child need to bring?

  • Please can children wear a clean school uniform. This should include a named sunhat.
  • Bookbag
  • Water bottle 
  • PE kit
  • A packed lunch (if you choose for your child to not have a hot dinner) Please remember that every child is entitled to a Free School Meal and hot meals are being provided. 

How are children grouped?

We are adopting a stringent bubble system where the children will remain with their own bubble, and bubble staff for all aspects of the school day including lunchtimes.

The bubble system means, that in line with guidance, young children can mix in a more age appropriate way in an environment that reflects our ethos and the principles of early years education. 

 

Personal Hygiene and Cleaning 

The enhanced cleaning includes the cleaning of shared resources and the additional cleaning of high touch areas. Those resources that are used by all children within the bubble will be cleaned regularly. Resources will not be shared across bubbles without cleaning or quarantine measures. Some resources such as pens and pencils will be personal to children, 

Children will be taught about personal hygiene including use of tissues, catching coughs and effective hand washing. They will wash their hands on arrival at school and throughout the day, including before and after eating.  

Communication between parents and school 

We really value the two way communication we have with parents, when school and families work in partnership together we know that children achieve the best possible outcomes. At the current time more of this is being conducted remotely.

We use our website to share all information with families.  Messages are also shared via facebook. Information shared includes:

  • Health and safety and organisational updates. 
  • All forms have been put on the school website for you to fill in electronically and email back to us.
  • Each class has their own lockdown learning page
  • Each year group has an email address to enable parents to contact teachers 
  • Teachers will be calling parents on a regular basis. please not that the number may show as withheld.

 

Learning 

We are aware that each and every child has their own learning needs and will have had their own learning experiences during the coronavirus pandemic. Learning will be personalised to each child with a focus on emotional health and wellbeing within the context of our full curriculum. 

 

Absence Notification

If your child is attending some days, dependant on your shifts, please can you let us know of shifts in advance.

If your child is not attending on any day please can you phone in as you usually would,
