Thank you for continuing to wear a face covering on the school site. We recognise that this may be frustrating for families as we are outside, however schools have been encouraged to continue to act cautiously to try to protect everyone within the community and as such face coverings remain part of our COVID assessment. COVID symptoms and testing. Thank you for keeping us well informed when your child has to self isolate or has started to become unwell with COVID19 symptoms.
Following on from the letter from the LA last week and the update on the weekly newsletter, we would like to
take this opportunity to remind parents that if anyone in your household starts to display any of the COVID symptoms, please book a PCR test and ensure all of the household remain at home until you have received the results of this test (and continue to remain at home if the test result is positive).
Lateral Flow tests should not be used if a child or household member has a cough or a fever– they are only appropriate to use in asymptomatic people. The letter dated 14th May from the LA and Public Health England has now been translated into a variety of languages—these will be sent home to families today.
Arrangements at the end of the day. Whilst we recognise that the site and pavement outside school becomes very congested at the end of the day, we would like to encourage parents waiting for Year 5 or Year 6 children to wait away from the gate to ensure
that others can use the pavement safely. It has been brought to our attention that parents with prams have been unable to use the pavement and have had to move onto the road to pass by the those waiting by the car park gate.
Thank you for your support
