Corona Virus: Covid 19

CORONA VIRUS: COVID 19:

In the light of the current guidance from the government and the NHS, anyone showing signs or symptoms of Covid 19 are being asked to self-isolate. Our intention is to keep the school open for as long as it is safe to do so, however, if our staff numbers are compromised we will HAVE to consider how we continue when considering safeguarding and the welfare of the children. We will need to risk assess on a day to day, hour by hour basis.

If you have any reason to consider that your family is at high risk to the Covid virus then please do let us know if your intention is to isolate or cut down on social contact as a family. We understand this may be necessary and support your choices. These absences would be classed as authorised.

Pupils and staff who are attending school will need to adhere to increased bio-security measures. If anyone, staff or pupil, exhibits symptoms whilst at school, we are duty-bound to send them home for 7 days.

As with severe weather conditions, it is our intention to let everyone know by 7.45am if the school needs to be closed. However, please bear in mind that it may be that a situation develops and we will need to make later decisions.

As with the whole country, these are unprecedented times. We will keep you as up to date as we can. Thank you for your understanding
