WEEKLY COVID UPDATE (w/b 20th September)
Those children and staff who informed us of positive tests last week are starting to return to school. We have had no new cases this week so far.
We continue to ask all parents to watch out for their children displaying any of the Covid-19 symptoms. If you are concerned, then please book a PCR test for your child. Alternatively, you can take a lateral flow test although this will need a follow up PCR test to confirm if it is positive. If this is positive please inform school and your child will have to isolate for 10 days.
WEEKLY COVID UPDATE (w/b 13th September)
We have now been made aware of 6 positive cases in school. Children in the following classes have tested positive:
These children are currently isolating for 10 days.
In addition, one member of staff has also tested positive and is currently isolating.
As you will see from our letter below, following new guidelines, other children in the class do not need to isolate. However, we would ask all parents, particularly those who have children in the classes above to watch out for their children displaying any of the Covid-19 symptoms. If you are concerned, then please book a PCR test for your child. Alternatively, you can take a lateral flow test although this will need a follow up PCR test to confirm if it is positive. If this is positive please inform school and your child will have to isolate for 10 days.
We look forward to welcoming children from Years 1-6 back into school on Monday 6th September.
We will be updating parents over the course of next week with any relevant information, but if you have any questions please do speak to us when you bring your child in on Monday.
Early Years children will have staggered entry at the start of the term and should have been given their start dates and times.
We will continue to use the entrances and exits as we did last year. A reminder of these is below:
Year 6 - Red Zone main door
Year 5 - Fire Exit door/steps in the car park by the cycle shed
Year 4 - Door opposite the field between Red and Blue Zone
Year 3 - 3L: Red Zone side door; 3S: Front quad
Year 2 - Blue Class: Front quad; Purple Class: via Yellow Zone
Year 1 - Green Class: via Yellow Zone; Yellow Class: Blue Zone main door
Children in Early Years and Key Stage 1 can be collected from the same door at the end of the day from 3.25pm.
Children in Key Stage 2 can be collected from 3.30pm.
We thank you for all your support over the last year and look forward to a successful start to the year.
UNFORTUNATELY, THE EVENT PLANNED FOR WEDNESDAY HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED DUE TO COACHES FROM PRESTIGE SPORTS NEEDING TO SELF ISOLATE.
We are looking to re-arrange something for the Autumn Term.
We apologise for the disappointment.

RAPID LATERAL FLOW TESTING
Households of all school pupils can get a twice-weekly test at a rapid lateral flow test site. These tests are for people who do not have any symptoms of Covid-19, but can identify if you may be infectious. You will get results in 30 minutes.
They are an important tool in helping to stop the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
