Please help us by being aware of the latest guidance.

Symptoms & Isolation Periods

If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people (for 3 days after the day they took the test) until they no longer have a high temperature and they are well to return.

​The guidance advises the following:

Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.

COVID-19 Latest Updates

Key Worker Care Update

Shortly we will be sending a text out to all our Key Worker families.

If you have had a text from us, please send your child/ren into school wearing their uniform as usual. School dinners will be provided on site, but you are also welcome to send in a packed lunch if you would prefer.

The school  will be open at 8.40 as usual and the school day will begin at 9.00. The children may be collected between 3.05 and 3.20.

The PE days for each bubble will be as follows:

Room 4  / Reception – Monday

Room 5 / Year 1 – Thursday

Room 3 / Year 2 – Tuesday

Room 2 / Year 3 – Wednesday

Room 6 / Year 4 – Friday

Room 8 / Year 5 – Friday

Room 7 / Year 6 – Wednesday

Before and after school provision will run as normal.

Due to the new lockdown, we expect parents to fully abide by social distancing rules and to wear a mask when dropping off and picking up children. Although the school doors open at 8.40, please remember that this is to give you enough time to drop children off and socially distance with other parents. Please do not all congregate outside classrooms while you wait to drop off / pick up your children: it is extremely important that we all act carefully and sensibly at this time to keep our community as safe as possible.

Keyworker Opening

We are still working through our list of Key Workers. If you have had a text and not emailed school yet, then please contact the school office by emailing by 3.30pm at the latest. This is when we will be making our final decision about numbers.

We will let everyone know about whether or not they have a place after this time.

Keyworker Care

We are trying our best to sort Keyworker Care. If you have received a text message or if you are new to our school and are a Keyworker then please email if you NEED Keyworker care and which days you will require this.  We are trying to limit the number of children and adults on site so please consider if you are able to keep your child at home or if you can continue to use your childcare bubble. We will contact you via text message or phone call by the end of the day to confirm your place.  Depending on numbers we may need to prioritise places for families with more than one keyworker.

Please be aware we do need to see proof of your job / keyworker status if you have changed job or have not provided this previously.

For the latest guidance on Keyworkers please visit this government website.

Season’s Greetings

Sorry to mention the horrid Covid word on the last day of term but I have been asked a hypothetical question and I have sought advice from the Department of Health and thought it best to share this with you all.

If your child develops any of the coronavirus symptoms within two days of being in school and then has a positive test we would ask that you email me at school and we will then be able to provide track and trace with the details of all those in the same bubble in order for them to isolate. If a child develops symptoms later in the holidays you would just advise us on return to school. I very much hope this is not the case for any of you, we want you to be able to enjoy Christmas with your families and then want you all back happy, healthy and rested on Wednesday 6 January 2021.

On a happier note I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a safe and very happy Christmas and hope 2021 sees us all being able to return to normal life albeit not immediately – the end is in sight!
