Covid-19 Information

Covid Updates

October 2021- School meal vouchers will be sent to you for the half term holiday at the end of this month.  If you are struggling to provide food for your child, please speak to Amanda Jones, Amanda Doy or Jane Hemery.  You can contact us via email to request a phonecall or a meeting.  We are able to give you vouchers for the food bank and provide a magic breakfast for your child.  All requests are treated with the utmost confidence.

What do I do if my child is unwell?

If your child has either a high temperature, a continuous cough or loss of taste and smell then they should not attend school until they have had a PCR test.  If it is negative, they can return to school immediately.  If it is positive then your child should remain at home for 10 days, or until they are better.


If you are concerned about your child's health, then speak to your GP or phone NHS 111 for medical advice.


Many children who have Covid-19 feel generally unwell or exhibit very mild symptoms.  We appreciate your support in testing children even if their symptoms are mild.  This helps prevent the potential spread of the virus in school and helps keep everyone safe.


If your child is awaiting a PCR test or the results of a PCR test, then their class teacher will provide work for them to do at home.  If they are unwell, they are not expected to complete work. This 'remote learning' is provided using Google Classrooms and the parent's guides below will explain how your child should log on and navigate the site.
