COVID updates  

September 2021 -Please see the following updates regarding the current situation in school.

 

Rapid testing of staff:

All school staff have the opportunity to take rapid Covid tests twice weekly. This is to identify any asymptomatic cases that may otherwise go unnoticed. Parents need to be aware that this will almost certainly cause disruption to bubbles or to online learning and we have plans in place to keep this to a minimum. The intention of this testing is to break chains of infection and help us to return to normal as soon as possible; I know that parents will be supportive and understanding and I thank staff for being so prepared to undergo this testing for the good of our school community

In the event of cases being identified in classes, a 'warn and inform' letter will be sent home

 

 Can I please remind all parents/carers of the one way system we have put in place to protect us all from the spread of COVID.
Parents should keep at least 1 metre distance on the playground when dropping off and collecting children and not crowd around doorways.

We hope to start relaxing rules around parents coming into school after half-term. However, this will be kept under review.
