- School Update -

 

Dear Families,

 

 

It has been a very busy and challenging time both at home and in school, many thanks for your support and understanding with home learning and your co-operation with getting all of the children in remaining classes in school. Home learning is a particular challenge for those of you working from home or working full time in a work place and we appreciate that it can be very difficult to balance work, school and home life. Despite these challenges the teachers have been very busy looking at children’s responses and videos – once again, these have been of high quality and have kept the teachers very busy responding to the pupils’ work.

 

The restrictions applied follow in-depth consultation with Public Health and any decisions to close classes, and the timescales involved, are stated by the Public Health team and are dependent on the timings of symptoms and tests with the people involved. It is very important that we all follow the advice given by the Local Outbreak Response Team and Public Health during the continued pandemic in order to try to restrict transmission of the virus.

 

This does mean that the children in the two classes working from home should be isolating as outlined in NHS guidance –

The period of isolation is scheduled to finish on 20th October and, as long as the children are feeling well, they should all return to school on Wednesday 21st October. The extra deep clean and ‘fogging’ of the whole school was carried out as planned over the weekend and we have been reassured by Public health that our procedures both before and during this incident have followed the most up to date guidance.

 

We understand that these can be very worrying and upsetting times for everyone involved but if you have any questions or concerns please do contact the school directly where we will try to help. With social media it is very easy for inaccurate information to quickly be shared and this can lead to further distress for the individual and families concerned. We have shared all information we have received in school with Public Health and have then followed their advice immediately.

 

It is therefore vitally important that parents keep school informed in regards to symptoms and test results so that we can all continue to work together to help ensure the safety of the whole school community.

 

Many thanks for your continued support in all aspects of school life and for your kind messages of support.

 

Mr Hackley and Mrs Randall
