Coronavirus update

 Coronavirus impact

 

This page will be updated as regularly as possible with information regarding the spread of coronavirus, and its impact on school.

School is open to pupils in YN, YR, Y1 and Y6 plus key worker and vulnerable pupils

As advised by the government, school will continue to operate so long as we have enough staff to do so safely. Children should attend unless they present the main symptoms.

Parents are advised to read the government's guidance on staying at home in the case of suspected coronavirus infection. This is based on the most significant symptoms of:

  •        new continuous cough, and/or
  •        high temperature (37.8°C)
  • loss of taste and smell

If children, or anyone in your household develop either of these symptoms, they should be kept at home for a period of 7 days from the onset of the symptoms and 14 days to others in the household.

As many activities as possible will try to continue as normal, although there will be some unavoidable changes.  There will be no Buddies blub at this time.  Singing will be suspended, there will be no assemblies, and years 2-5 will not be in school until September. 

Teachers are working hard to provide work for pupils to complete if being isolated at home.  You are further encouraged to make use of available resources such as TTRockstars , reading tasks and BBC dancemat. 

There are also a number of educational games on our website.

 

In school, we will continue to encourage regular handwashing, and the use of tissues to 'Catch It, Bin It, Kill It". Any further available information will be provided on this page as and when it is available. 

 

Children and staff are advised not to wear face coverings.  If they wear them on the way to school, they must be removed upon arrival.
