Looking forward to seeing you all pupils on Monday March 8th

Social distancing – Please help by delivering and collecting children from school at the staggered times and remaining 2m from other families when at the school gates.

Attendance – is mandatory for all children and we will be following the dfe guidelines re fines. Letters have been sent to all those parents/carers who are currently at risk of receiving a fine, if your child’s attendance gets worse. If you have any difficulties, please speak to school.

Face masks - Children in primary schools do not need to wear a face covering and they should not be asked to wear one says Dr Susan Hopkins, the Chief Medical Adviser for NHS Test and Trace. Adults should wear face masks in corridors where 2m social distance cannot be maintained and a face shield in class, if they wish.

Travelling to school safely

  • If you live a short distance from your school or college, walk, cycle or scoot to and from school wherever it is possible and safe to do so and avoid sharing a car with anyone outside of your household or support bubble.
  • If you are using public transport to get to school or college, plan ahead and allow more time for your journey
  • when you are travelling by public or dedicated school transport, don’t forget to:
    • wear a face covering (unless you are exempt or 11 and under for all of your journey, including inside the station, social distance where possible and wash or sanitise your hands regularly.

Asymptomatic testing information for parents and adults in households with children at school

All adults in households with school and college age children without symptoms can now access regular rapid COVID-19 testing in order to reduce the transmission of the disease. This includes childcare and support bubbles. Children of primary school age (and below) without symptoms are not being asked to take a test.

Tests are fast, easy and completely free. There are different ways for a household, childcare or support bubble to collect their test to take at home, twice-weekly:

  • through your employer, if they offer testing to employees
  • by collecting a home test kit from a local test site – anyone aged 18 or over can collect 2 packs of 7 tests
  • by ordering a home test kit online – please do not order online if you can access testing through other routes, this frees up home delivery for those who need it most
