Dear Parent/ Carer and members of our community,
It is with great sadness that our school is closed to the majority of pupils as of 6th January. We are still open to the children of critical workers and vulnerable pupils. I want to take this opportunity to highlight a few key points and say that I hope you and your family take care and stay well during this difficult time.
As you know, we have sent out and will continue to send, weekly booklets for your child to complete at home. These can be found also on our HOME LEARNING page. Please encourage your child to complete the daily Maths, English and Topic activities created by their teacher.
All year groups also have daily Microsoft Teams lessons; your teacher will send an invite to your email. If you are having any difficulties in accessing the lessons, please contact your teachers on their class email or contact the office on 01302 842092 or email email@example.com
If you do not have the technology to access the lessons, please get in contact and we will help where we can.
As a recognition of this very difficult time, we are offering a fortnightly food box to ALL our families (including our free school meal families, our universal infant free school meal families and nursery). Please let school know by midday on the 8th January if you would like the food box. To view the contents of the box please click on the link: https://www.morrisons.com/food-boxes/box/cupboard-essentials-box
Wellbeing and health
If at any point during this period of closure, your child is struggling with home learning, their emotional and mental well being or in any other way, please get in touch. We can arrange for a member of staff to make a video call with them if appropriate or help in a different way. Also, if you or your family are struggling in general at any point, please let us know by phoning 01302 842092 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help you in anyway we can. Below there are links to various organisations as well that can help with food, money and mental health

When my child comes to school
When your child’s bubble returns to school, we will bring in even more measures to try and lower the risk of any further spread. I ask that you help and support us in the below:
- Please do not bring your child to school if they are unwell or if they have symptoms. Please ring school if you are unsure if they can or not. We can also help you by providing a test, in case 119 or the COVID websites say you are not eligible for a drive-in test.
- Adults must wear face coverings on school premises when dropping off or collecting your child, unless you are exempt according to government guidance. Even though our staggered drop-offs have meant you have lots of space to socially distance in our outdoor areas, we hope this will make you feel slightly safer when coming to school
- Ensure your child has extra layers and a coat, we will continue to have the windows open as ventilation is important in diluting the aerosols in a classroom but the temperature is falling as we move in to winter
Please also continue to:
- Please make sure you are sticking to your staggered times, these help us to ensure there are not large numbers coming to school at once – this keeps you safer
- Ensure you keep at least a 2m distance from others at all times on site
- Only having one parent/carer drop off and pick-up to keep numbers on site low.
- Follow national guidance in terms of house to house contact and mixing.
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.
The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online.
Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
- a new continuous cough
- a high temperature
- a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
If your child does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from the nhs.uk website at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/check-if-you-have-coronavirus-symptoms/. If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at https://111.nhs.uk/ or by phoning 111.
How to stop COVID-19 spreading
There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19
- wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
- use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- wash your hands as soon as you get home
- cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
