Parents do the right thing
Parents are doing the right thing to protect our class 'bubbles'. Children are being kept at home when:
- they show any coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms. They stay at home for at least 10 days, or until a test result is negative;
- anyone in your household shows coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms). Pupils stay at home for at least 14 days; or
- they have been asked to self-isolate by NHS test and trace because they have been in contact with someone who has the virus. They stay at home for at least 14 days.
This is helping to keep our pupils and class 'bubbles' safe. Fielding has no confirmed cases for pupils or members of staff. We continue to stay safe and protect our bubbles. We remain fully open, for now. Check Ealing's guide for parents in our COVID pages for parents:
- we've improved our organisation when you tell us that your child is self-isolating;
- we know that getting a coronavirus test is proving difficult. Parents who have been successful recommend:
- New walk-in testing at Featherstone Terrace Car Park
- keep trying the NHS Test website, over and over again;
- pupils are even better at following our rules and routines to keep them safe, especially in Years 3-6;
- teachers have started to set work using Microsoft Teams for children learning at home and keeping in touch with them by audio and video calls on Teams;
- teachers have found out the things that pupils can and cannot remember in reading, writing and maths. This will help us identify gaps and plan our catch-up programme.
- Year 6 Star Leaders wrote and filmed superb video clips about our school for prospective parents who want to join Reception and Nursery in September 2021 (Our School, Admissions)
- class sharing assemblies continue in Year 6. We are trying different uses of Microsoft Teams to give you and children the best experience. Class 6P's assembly is broadcast as a 'live' event today. Watch for posts on Teams using your child's account.
- behind the scenes, leaders have been looking at the best ways to spend our share of the government's 'catch-up' funding.
As soon as a child is forced to self-isolate or we close a class 'bubble' for 14 days, learning and contact with the class teacher will switch to Microsoft Teams. Are you ready to use Microsoft Teams at home?
