Dear Parents/Carers,

The staff and children are all working really hard on all of the exciting Christmas projects, we have the KS2 Carol Concert on Wednesday 8th December, the EYFS Sing-a-Long on Wednesday 15th December, The Year 1 and 2 Nativity on 17th December, the Carol Service at All Hallows Church on Monday 20th December and the Key Stage 2 Talent Show on Wednesday 22nd December.  Wow such a lot of exciting things!

As there are still thousands of cases of Covid every day and a new variant to contend with we need to ensure that we are as safe as we can be.


The Local Authority and Public Health England have asked all schools to continue to work in a Covid safe way with a risk assessment and an outbreak plan.  Here are the things that you need to know:

1.  Families will be given one ticket for each event for one adult, if you attend an event you will need to use hand gel on arrival to school and wear a face mask.

2. Staff in school will be wearing face masks again as an extra precaution.

3. We will continue with the one-way system for drop off and pick up. This is to minimise crowding at the doors. Please still stand 2 metres apart.

4. Children will hand gel as they arrive at school and wash their hands regularly during the day.

5. Children will mix with each other in the playground at playtimes, unless we have cases in a class, that class will then form a bubble.

6. All children will eat their lunch in the school hall, unless that class is in a bubble, (the timings will be staggered).

7. Children will be taught in their classes, bubbles won't be used unless there are cases in a class, we will have house events and shared experiences as a whole school.

8. Whole school events have been planned and will take place as long as we do not have high numbers of cases of Covid in school.

9. School staff will take twice weekly lateral flow tests.

The risk assessment is dynamic and will change in response to advice from Public Health England and the Local Authority along with any cases that may occur in school. I will let you know if there are any cases in your child's class, if your child has been a close contact or if there any changes to the risk assessment.

If you have any questions, please just give me a call at school.

Best wishes

Mrs Hill

 

Stockport Primary Behaviour Support Service have produced some really lovely online resources to support children’s wellbeing.  Many children have found this lockdown really difficult and have low mood or difficulty understanding why they need to be inside and not have contact with their friends. If you follow this link you will be able to access free resources that can help.

For up-to-date advice and information about Norovirus (Winter Vomiting Bug) please refer to this guide.

If your child is showing symptoms of Norovirus (vomiting or diarrhoea), the current advice is as follows

“Because the virus is highly contagious, children who have Norovirus symptoms must remain off school or nursery for 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea to stop the spread of infection with other children or staff.” (page 1)
