Covid Information Page
Guidance from Department for Education
The DfE have published FAQs and guidance for parents about the vaccination rollout for 5 - 11 year olds and are asking schools to share with parents.
Some important reminders;
Upto February 21st 2022 (when COVID guidance changed), adults in school were asked to complete 2 tests a week to ensure the school is a safe place to work and learn. We had a 100% take up on these tests. We are very confident that this was a really positive step for everyone's health and safety.
Day to Day Running:
Your child's class may be led by their teacher, their TA or a different member of staff from within school. We want to keep the continuity for you and your child and this may mean that if a teacher or a TA is ill or self isolating that they will be taught by a different staff member.
We continue to put the health and safety of children and staff as our top priority. We review our “Risk Assessment” regularly in light of new information and advice.
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
This page is currently being updated in light of new guidance
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
