Covid-19

The government have announced that all children are expected to return to school from September 2020. This page is designed to keep you informed about the most recent changes in school due to the ongoing pandemic and answer any questions you may have.  

If you have any further questions or would like to speak to someone relating to Covid-19, please contact the school office.  

We have implemented strict guidelines for everyone to ensure our pupils, families and staff remain safe at school.

Advice for Parents and Carers of Children who are Self Isolating

If your chid has to self-isolate, please inform school as soon as possible by contacting the school office.  Your child’s class teacher will provide a paper work pack for your child to complete at home for the period of their isolation. This can be collected from the school office or, if you are unable to collect due to isolation, can be delivered by the school pastoral team. Your child can take pictures of their paper pack work and upload this to Seesaw for their teacher to mark and give feedback. 

If your child’s class bubble are required to isolate, you will be informed by text message at the earliest possibility and informed of the dates of self-isolation. Your child’s class teacher will set work on Seesaw for the period of the isolation. This will include daily maths, English and foundation subject work. It is very important that you encourage your child to log in and complete online work daily. Your child will also be asked to access online programmes such as Reading Plus, TT Rockstars etc. Your child will alternatively be provided with a paper work pack, if they wish to complete this instead.
