The school expects to be fully reopen on the 3rd September 2020 (staff INSET day 2nd September 2020)

Please see "Policies" page for most recent updates.

 

The documents above will be updated periodically. As always, we welcome input and feedback from members of the school community.

 

Current position:

  • School is currently closed to pupils other than vulnerable children, those with an EHCP, the children of key workers and Bubble groups from Nursery, Reception and Year 1.
  • If your child has symptoms of Coronavirus (however mild) including high temperature, continuous cough or loss of sense of taste/smell, they should stay at home for 14-days (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection)
  • We continue to follow government advice regarding the recent outbreak of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
  • Every child at school has received a lesson from their teacher on hand washing and helping to avoid spreading respiratory illnesses.
  • We continue to keep the school clean to avoid germs or viruses from being passed on. This includes an additional midday clean of key 'touch points' around the school including door handles and door push panels.
  • Every member of the school washes their hands upon arrival and at regular points through the day as detailed in our handwash routine. 
  • We aim to keep the community aware of the steps we are taking by updating this webpage and sending parentmail updates to parents/carers.
  • If an adult or child presents are unwell with a high temperature and persistent cough, we will:
    • find somewhere safe for the unwell person to sit which is at least 2 metres away from other people.

    • If possible, find a room or area where they can be isolated behind a shut door, such as a staff office or meeting room.

    • If it is possible to open a window, do so for ventilation.

    • They will be asked to avoid touching people, surfaces and objects and be advised to cover their mouth and nose with a disposable tissue when they cough or sneeze and put the tissue in the bin. If no bin is available, put the tissue in a bag or pocket for disposing in a bin later. If no tissues are available, they should cough and sneeze into the crook of their elbow. The room will need to be cleaned once they leave.

    • If they need to go to the bathroom whilst waiting for medical assistance, they will use a separate bathroom if available.
