COVID-19 Information

Key information:

  • You must ensure that if anyone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms, your child does NOT attend school and a test is organised. You must phone the school on the first morning of absence.
  • Any child or staff member who develops symptoms in the school day will be sent home immediately.
  • If anyone in your household, or your child, tests positive for COVID-19 you MUST inform the school.
  • School will only close a bubble following a positive test result for COVID-19. However, this will be reviewed on a case by case basis, and in some situations a bubble may need to close whilst awaiting results.
  • Parents of closed bubbles will be notified by ParentHub and Class Dojo. Notifications will not go to the whole school.
  • Your child will be expected to follow strict behaviour rules relating to physical contact with other pupils and keeping their hands clean.
  • Pupils will be expected to wash their hands regularly and use hand sanitiser, available in school.
  • Children only need to bring a water bottle, their stationery set and a coat to school.
  • The government have advised walking or cycling to school wherever possible to reduce the use of public transport.
