Return to School

Dear Parents,

Thank you for your calm approach to our COVID cases and your understanding that the school has been working very hard to reduce the risk. We have succeeded in keeping the three sites COVID free since March which includes 500 children and over 60 staff.

It was very disappointing to have this outbreak at half term. We had 6 staff test positive and 2 children in Reception. Everyone is now doing fine. I have been in constant contact with Public Health England throughout the holidays and also Track and Trace.

Together we have added some additional measures to our Risk Assessment which will be on our website today - November version. I have added the changes in red so that you can see what actions we are taking.

The main point of cross contamination appears to be the staff room which is very small and also contains the photocopier. It therefore has a lot of foot fall during the day. Additional steps have been introduced to increase social distancing further.

I initially informed parents that Nursery and some KS1 children would return on Wednesday 4th and the remainder on Monday 9th November.

Public Health England have reviewed all of our cases and requirements to isolate and have advised that Nursery should return on Wednesday 4th November as originally planned as there have been no staff or pupils cases reported in the Nursery setting.

They have also stated that all children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 should return on Friday 6th November.

No child or adult should return if they have had a temperature - without medication in the 48 hours before returning to school.

We will continue to work relentlessly to ensure the safety of our community and will continue to look for ways to improve further. We also ask that parents and families are vigilant in following social distancing rules and the restrictions of the local area to help us to prevent further outbreaks in our school.

If you have any queries or concerns please email me on:

Please take care and keep well.

Yours sincerely

Mrs S Blower

Executive Head Teacher
