General notices 

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 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’.

 Further information is available at:

 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 website at If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at 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
