You should be having regular communication with your child’s class teacher about the online learning that they are doing. Can I remind you that this is not optional. We expect that all children should complete the work that is set and the government have made it very clear to us that we must do this throughout the lockdown. Teachers are available during the school day to discuss this with you. We have provided a number of chromebooks for children to complete on-line learning and requested some more for the families on our waiting list. These arrived today and families on the waiting list are being given a time to collect them from school.
If you need any support please phone school on 02476 612073 between 8.30am and 3.30pm or contact the following email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are currently open for the children of Key Workers and vulnerable children only. Please refer to our newsletter for regular updates and information.
Details of how remote learning is carried out are in the attached document and our Remote Learning Policy which is in the Policies section of the website.
In order to continue to protect our school community, you MUST make sure that if your child is unwell in any way, that they do not attend school. If they or anyone else in the household have the top three symptoms of a temperature OR a new continuous cough OR a loss of taste or smell, you must self-isolate until you have taken a test and got the result. If your child is unwell in any other way, we ask that you keep them off school, and if in any doubt, please get a test for your piece of mind and ours.
Current government guidelines
Stay at home and self-isolate
If you develop symptoms of COVID-19, stay at home and self-isolate immediately. If you have a positive test result but do not have symptoms, stay at home and self-isolate as soon as you receive the results. Your household needs to isolate too.
Arrange to have a PCR test for COVID-19 if you have not already had one. Stay at home while you are waiting for a home test kit, a test site appointment or a test result. You can leave your home in certain circumstances , but do not go to work, school, or public areas and do not use public transport or taxis. Only leave your home to get to your test if you need to, observe strict social distancing advice and return immediately afterwards.
Your isolation period includes the day your symptoms started (or the day your test was taken if you do not have symptoms), and the next 10 full days. This means that if, for example, your symptoms started at any time on the 15th of the month (or if you did not have symptoms but your first positive COVID-19 test was taken on the 15th), your isolation period ends at 23:59 hrs on the 25th.
You can return to your normal routine and stop self-isolating after 10 full days if your symptoms have gone, or if the only symptoms you have are a cough or anosmia, which can last for several weeks. If you still have a high temperature after 10 days or are otherwise unwell, stay at home and seek medical advice.
If you are isolating because of a positive test result but did not have any symptoms, and you develop COVID-19 symptoms within your isolation period, start a new 10 day isolation period by counting 10 full days from the day following your symptom onset.
Stay as far away from other members of your household as possible, especially if they are clinically extremely vulnerable. Wherever possible, avoid using shared spaces such as kitchens and other living areas while others are present and take your meals back to your room to eat. Wear a face covering or a surgical mask when spending time in shared areas inside your home.
Take exercise within your home, garden or private outdoor space. Follow the general advice to reduce the spread of the infection within your household.
