COVID

At this time of adversity, of local and national lockdowns; at a time when we are trying to recover from the school’s forced school closure and ensure that we as a school do everything we can to support our children and minimise the impact of COVID-19, not only academically but emotionally, we ask for your support.  

 

This continues to be a very difficult time for us all, especially our school, as our children return to school after a period of restricted attendance. 

 

It was not that long ago when the school was forced to close due to the global pandemic and stayed closed for the majority of our pupils from 23rd March until 1st June 2020 as well as from the 5th January 2021 to 8th March 2021 forcing schools to close-restricting pupils from attending unless they are vulnerable and/or critical key worker children.

 

In case of an outbreak at our school, please see the below plan:

Even though the Government have eased restrictions and protective measures we continue to implement, review and evaluate our school's COVID Risk Assessments to ensure the safety of our pupils, staff, the school community and the school itself. 

 

Please see the below Risk Assessments:

Those detailed in the above documents include:

  • implementing a one-way system when parents are dropping off/picking up thus reducing congestion,
  • limiting adults in school,
  • maintaining ventilated rooms,
  • encouraging good hand hygiene,
  • using the 'Catch it, Bin it, Kill it' to encourage good respiratory hygiene,
  • creating virtual resources so parents can still benefit from school support during this time of social restrictions, when we are unable to conduct ‘face to face’ meetings.  

We believe we are doing a lot to ensure that our school operates well, at a time of uncertainty and would like to take this opportunity to thank all those parents who are conscientiously following the school’s guidance.

 

Please see below various risk assessments to enable specific educational visitors to deliver aspects of our curriculum, face to face:

Risk Assessments for Peripatetic Teachers:
Risk Assessments for agreed Educational Visitors:

Swimming Risk Assessments

It is incumbent upon us all to accept both individual and collective responsibility for the safety and well-being of our school community.  It is imperative that we all do as much as we can at this time to keep each other safe and help to keep our school open. 

 

  • Please DO NOT come to school before 8.45am in the morning and 3.15pm in the afternoon. 

If parents arrive early then parents have to queue. If parents queue, it delays the children coming in or leaving the school.

 

  • Parents are no longer required to wear face masks when dropping off/collecting children, however all adults must try and maintain social distancing from each other.

There are close to 150-200 adults, as well as the school children moving to and from school at the start and end of school day. The science tells us that the greater chance of transmission of COVID-19 is through social contact.  Please take the necessary precautions to protect yourself and others.

 

  • Please DO NOT congregate before/after school, outside the school, at the park or other areas of the village.

Reduce the risk of transmission and protect the class ‘bubbles.’

 

Please continue to support our school, by accepting personal and collective responsibility and following the school’s guidance-protecting yourself, each other and our school.  We are stronger when we work together. 

 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding at this time.

 

As a school we receive a small amount of funding to support minimise the impact of COVID on pupils. Please see our COVID Catch Up Report below:
