12th April return to school
We are looking forward to welcoming all children back to school on Monday 12th April. Please read the information below. Covid-safety arrangements will be reviewed and adapted over the next few weeks as guidance to schools are updated. We will let you know any proposed changes. If you have any concerns or questions, please get in touch.
Very best wishes,
Health and Safety
The full risk assessment for opening school is below. This will be reviewed and amended as necessary and at least every two weeks.
Health and Safety measures include:
|Pupils in class 'Bubbles'||To enable track and trace if there is a confirmed case of Covid 19|
Where age-approprate, children facing the front of their
classroom as much as practical
|To reduce potential transmission of Covid 19|
Flexible drop-off and pick-up times
(see separate guidance)
|To reduce congestion at busy times of the day|
Separate entrances for each class to enter/exit school
through their own classroom door
|To reduce congestion in corridors|
Face coverings to be worn by all parents on school site and by all
staff around school, unless in own bubble.
|To reduce possible transmission of Covid 19|
|Handgel and handwashing||To reduce the spread of germs|
|Wellness checks of staff and pupils on arrival||To reduce the risk of anyone entering school with symptoms|
|Regular cleaning of surfaces||To reduce the spread of germs|
All members of school community to be careful and
follow social distancing and hygiene guidelines on school site and outside school
|To reduce the risk of Covid 19 outbreak within school community|
In these difficult and unpredictable times, we cannot eliminate all risk of Covid 19. However, the range of measures above will work together to reduce the risk as much as we can. We have tried to get a balance of stringent Health and Safety measures within our child-friendly and reassuring environment. If you have any feedback on this, please get in touch with Ms C-B via the school office.
More detail on these measures can be found in the guidance sheets and risk assessment below.
Arrangements for dropping off, picking up, lunches, equipment etc. along with health and safety measures are all set out in these documents:
