Coronavirus (COVID-19) Procedures
The change in government guidance on 1st April 2022 is outlined below.
- Schools are no longer required to provide remote education if your child is absent due to Covid.
- Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.
- Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
- Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be 3 days.
- Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings.
- Parents and carers of all 5 to 11 year olds are now able to book a COVID-19 vaccination for their child. You can book an appointment via the NHS national booking service.
Attendance is mandatory, so our attendance policy resumes in full, including no authorisation for holidays in term time. All absences will be followed up with parents. Absences must be reported daily via ParentMail, email or phone, by 9am.
Covid Safety Procedures in School
The school will continue with measures to prevent transmission, such as keeping classrooms well ventilated, using carbon dioxide monitors, frequent hand washing/sanitising and regular cleaning. We update our health and safety risk assessment regularly.
Drop off and pick up
Drop off and pick up times will be the same for all year groups. Please be punctual. Arrivals after 9.15am can be recorded as unauthorised absence.
