It was great to hear good news last night and to see that restrictions are starting to be lifted further due to everyone’s hard work and following the current restrictions.
Reading the guidance for school’s that has come out today, very little will change within school. We will be continuing with the following:
- Staggered drop off and collection times. Please remember to collect your child at the latest collection time, children should not be leaving class early if a sibling finishes earlier.
- Social distancing and wearing of face masks on school property will continue.
- Staff will continue to wear face masks in communal areas of the school.
- Children will remain in their class bubbles for the day.
- STARS will be continuing in the hall.
Despite the restrictions easing from Monday 17th May COVID19 has not disappeared and schools have been reminded to follow the below procedures:
‘If anyone in your school develops a new and continuous cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), you must:
- send them home to begin isolation – the isolation period includes the day the
symptoms started and the next 10 full days
- advise them to follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed
- advise them to arrange to have a test as soon as possible to see if they have
COVID-19. This must be a PCR test, a LFD test is not sufficient.
Other members of their household (including any siblings and members of their support
or childcare bubble if they have one) should self-isolate. Their isolation period includes
the day symptoms started for the first person in their household, or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms, whether this was a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) or Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test), and the next 10 full days.’
