January 2022 return to school


We are looking forward to welcoming all children back to school in January.  However, Covid rates in Liverpool are high and we are expecting some disruption in school due to staff and pupil absence. 


Staff Absence

We already know that there are a number of staff who have tested positive in the last week and won't be able to return to school for the start of term.  We will do our very best to cover classes and support children by moving staff around within school.  There is a shortage of staff on supply but, if possible, we will employ supply teachers and teaching assistants.


Poorly children

Please be careful not to send children into school if they have any Covid symptoms (Omicron symptoms are similar to the common cold).  If they do have symptoms, please take your child for a PCR test and only send into school once they receive a negative result.

If your child develops symptoms in school, we will need to send them home and advise you to book a PCR.  Please be patient with us.


If someone in the family tests positive

We are asking for children to take a Lateral Flow test if they don't have symptoms. If they test negative, then they can come into school but please minimise their contact with the Covid-positive family member.  If your child develops symptoms, they should go for a PCR test even if they have previously tested negative.


Please don't hesitate to contact us for advice if you have any queries.


Very best wishes,


Miss CB



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:

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

Handgel and handwashing


To reduce the spread of germs 
Wellness checks of staff and pupils on arrivalTo 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 alert to symptoms of Covid and seek a PCR test if they become unwell. 

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 CB 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, equipment etc. along with health and safety measures are all set out in these documents:
