School Opening

From Wednesday the 5th of January school will be open for the children of keyworkers.  All other children will be taught remotely. 

Support if you have been affected by COVID-19

During the lockdown, families may well be affected in different ways, including with regards bereavement, and mental health and wellbeing.

If you have been affected in any way and would like to have support from school, please call us. Miss Spears is making regular contact with families, and can offer advice and guidance to support you. Staff at the school have also been trained with how to support in these areas, so you might be signposted to a specific staff member who can offer you further support.

What to do if anyone in of your household, have symptoms of COVID-19

The key symptoms of COVID-19 are:

  • a persistent cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of taste and/or smell

Everyone in the school community has a responsibility to listen to and follow the guidance provided so that the NHS is not overwhelmed with unnecessary contact. You should not be going to the doctor's surgery or hospital outpatients department. You should be making use of the NHS 111 helpline but only if your symptoms become unmanageable at home. Most people who contract the virus will experience either no, or very mild, symptoms and will recover in less than a week.

However, as you will know, tests to see if you have or have not got the virus are now readily available. If you have symptoms, PLEASE DO ASK FOR A TEST IMMEDIATELY. To do this, please click here.

HOW TO LOOK AFTER YOUR WELL-BEING AND YOUR CHILDREN'S WELL-BEING DURING THE OUTBREAK

Here are some useful websites you can visit to give you support for your well-being during the outbreak.
If your child, or anyone in their household has symptoms, it is ESSENTIAL that you let the school know immediately, and also arrange for a test immediately. The school need to know the outcome of the test to decide whether the person affected has received a positive or negative result, as this will be information that we will have to share with the Health Protection Team who will inform us about what our next steps need to be; this may include closing down class or Year Group ‘bubbles’.

PLEASE FOLLOW THIS ADVICE AND HELP VITAL RESOURCES TO BE TARGETED AT THE RIGHT PEOPLE.

Take care, everyone. Please check our website regularly for updates and more information as it breaks.
