Welcome to Term 2, 2020
We have now opened for Term 2, 2020 and welcomed back our pupils from Nursery to Grade 6 after an announcement from Government.
We understand that the return to school is vital for your child’s education and wellbeing. That said, we are still not at the point where we can guarantee this. While the risk to children becoming severely unwell due to coronavirus is considered to be low, we will continue to put social distancing and infection control measures in place, as much as practically possible, to help keep all members of our school safe.
Attendance for all pupils is mandatory, so ALL children from Nursery to Grade 7 are expected to return, including pupils who have, up to this point, been advised to shield at home.
It is important that we maintain proportionate infection control measures when we welcome back all pupils and staff from the start of the term. To ensure everyone’s safety, we will be enforcing the following as part of our risk management plan:
Anyone who is unwell and displaying symptoms of coronavirus will be asked to stay at home for seven days.
Robust hand and respiratory hygiene practices will be encouraged and enforced.
Enhanced cleaning will be undertaken as necessary, including cleaning any frequently touched surfaces throughout the day.
If your child becomes unwell at school and develops a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of smell or taste, they will be sent home immediately. They will be told to self-isolate within the school and supervised, as necessary, until they can be collected. The school will contact you via telephone as soon as possible should your child need to go home.
Please contact the school office via telephone before 7:50am to notify us that your child will not be attending. We also ask that you notify the school office as soon as possible with the results of any coronavirus tests your child has undertaken.
Here are some photos from our first assembly back to school. We welcome back our pupils for the Second Term of 2020.
