    Update - 10.9.2020

    Thank you to all the parent and carers that have supported the school this week in our safe return to school. We would like to ask you for further support on the following matters:

    • Please drop off and collect your child(ren) on time. You can find the times in the table below. 
    • Where possible, please can we request that only one parent/carer drops off and collects your child(ren) to avoid large crowds outside the gates.
    • When collecting your child(ren), please do not wait around to socialise. If your child walks home alone, please remind them to not wait for friends from other classes.
    • For safety reasons, the car park near the Hobson's gate will be closed from 8am-9am and 2pm-3pm from Monday 14th September 2020.
    • Please wear a mask when dropping and collecting your child(ren). This helps to keep you, the staff and all of the children safe. Please see this video on using your mask. 

     

     

     

     

     


     

    Test & Trace Information

    As children in all year groups return to school full-time, we must ensure that we put in place a range of protective measures to reduce the risk of transmission. We will also be engaging fully with the NHS Test & Trace process, and will work closely with the local Health Protection Team of Public Health England and the local authority to ensure that any confirmed cases are reported without delay.

    Within this letter, you will find details of what to expect if the school is notified of a possible or confirmed case of coronavirus in school.

    Where there is a possible case of coronavirus in school

    If a child or member of staff develops symptoms of coronavirus, the individual concerned will be sent home and asked to self-isolate for 10 days. They will be asked to arrange a test at the earliest convenience (either by visiting a test centre, or by requesting a home test kit) and to share the results with the school.

    The parents/carers of other children within the bubble will be sent a letter to notify them of this situation however, the individual will not be named and personally identifiable information will not be included. All other children within the bubble will be able to continue to attend school as normal whilst the test is carried out and until the result is known.

    The wider school community will not receive this letter.

    Where there is a confirmed case of coronavirus in school

    If a child or member of staff tests positive for coronavirus, the individual concerned will be asked to self-isolate for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. 

    If they have tested positive whilst not experiencing symptoms but develop symptoms during the isolation period, they should restart the 10 day isolation period from the day they develop symptoms

    Other members of their household or support bubble should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms and should continue this period of isolation even if they too have been tested and have received a negative test result.

    The school will work with the Health Protection Team of Public Health England to carry out a risk assessment to determine who else, if anyone, also needs to isolate.

    The parents/carers of other children within the bubble will be sent a letter to notify them of this situation, and will be advised of any additional measures which are required. Again, the individual will not be named and personally identifiable information will not be included.

    What you can do

    If your child, a household member or a member of your support bubble develops any of the following symptoms, we would ask that you notify the school immediately and arrange a test by visiting https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test
