Covid-19

Thank you for your patience whilst we waited for further information on the increased opening of schools. 

We have spent recent days with the CYPES Health and Safety advisor walking around our site, testing our plans, ensuring that we are able to satisfy the Government’s safe return policy. Thankfully, in principle, they have approved all the preparations that we have completed and have supported our invitation to children in all classes to return to school. 

Please find the Workplace Safety Plan & Safe Return to work Risk Assessment attached below.

The research findings currently indicate that children have a lower rate of symptomatic infections than adults. The latest World Health Organisation (WHO) report states that the risk of transmission from child to child seems low, “For most Covid-19 infections in children, an adult was the source of infection”

The Government advice is that we expand our current model of working with children in “class bubbles”, keeping these bubbles separate wherever possible.  The class teacher and teaching assistants will be part of these bubbles.  Wherever possible we will be encouraging social distancing – especially with any adults that come onto the school site. 

Your child will be hand washing regularly throughout the day – please talk to them about thorough hand cleaning and hygiene expectations. Videos demonstrating these can be found on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TOno60UBLg

Staff will spend time throughout the week explaining and reinforcing new routines and expectations so that everyone knows what is expected of them.

The children will work and play within their bubbles in designated areas. They are not allowed to mix with children from other bubbles. Children are not allowed to share any of their own personal equipment with their friends

Class Specific information:

Upper Phase (Yr4, Yr5 & Yr6)

Wherever possible, we ask children in the Upper Phase to make their own way to/from school each day.  Parents/Guardians will not be permitted onto school grounds.  If there is no alternative and children are needing to be driven to school, we ask that parents use the car park opposite Georgetown Co-op to pull in to drop and collect.  Please do not park and escort your children (as we are wanting to avoid a gathering of adults at the school gates).  Mr Clark will be on road crossing duties to ensure they cross the road safely. 

Middle Phase (Yr2 & Yr3)

Wherever possible, we ask parents & children in the Middle Phase socially distance when entering school grounds – please be patient if there is a queue (as we are wanting to avoid a gathering of adults at the school gates). 

Early Phase (Nursery, Reception & Yr1)

Wherever possible, we ask parents & children in the Early Phase to socially distance when entering school grounds – please be patient if there is a queue (as we are wanting to avoid a gathering of adults at the school gates).  If possible please try to avoid bringing pushchairs or buggies to school.

Non-Uniform

To enable children to have a clean change of clothes each day they will be able to come in wearing non-uniform.  Please may we ask that children wear clothes that are appropriate rather than a fashion show/party clothes.  They will be outside as much as possible – shorts/tee-shirt are preferable.  No open toed sandals/flip flops – trainers please.  Sun cream needs to be applied before they come to school & they will need sun hats each day.

I want to reassure you again that we will not be pressuring you to send your child to school – you know what is best for your child’s health, their well-being and your family.  If you choose not to send your child into school please make contact with Ms Hamon (730657) to let us know.
