Covid updates

Start and finish times

We will no longer be staggering morning and afternoon start and end times. This means the children need to arrive 8.45am and at 3.15pm. On a Thursday we will continue to have an early finish time and children can be collected at 1.45pm.

Breakfast Club changes from Monday 22nd November 2021

We are asking parents to book a place at breakfast from Monday 22nd November 2021.

Wearing face coverings

Face coverings are advisable. If you are entering into any of the school buildings, please wear a face covering. Staff will be wearing face coverings when they leave their main working area.

Lunchtimes

Lunchtimes will change to 30 minutes for each year group. Children, where possible will remain in their year groups bubbles.

Rapid Testing

Rapid testing will continue to remain a vital part of the Government plans to suppress this virus, in education and childcare settings. This sort of testing means that asymptomatic people who might otherwise continue to attend educational settings are identified and self-isolate. Staff continue to test twice-weekly using the lateral flow home kits. This will continue until further notice.

Covid symptoms, testing and positive cases

All current guidance will still be in place regarding covid symptoms. If your child or anyone in your household develops any covid symptoms you must book a test and self-isolate if you are positive. Positive cases now only effect the person testing postive or a person who is over 18 years and 6 month, who has only had one injection. Anyone younger than this or who is double jabbed and is not positive can continue as normal.

If the school receives a positive covid case track and trace will still need to identify all close contacts.
