Stay COVID-safe in school as national restrictions relax
National restrictions for COVID-19 relax as the government continues to follow their road map. Government expectations for schools remain mostly unchanged.
We all need to work together so that we stay open to as many pupils as possible for as long as possible:
- pupils remain working in class group bubbles, for most of the school day including lessons and breaks;
- if it is not practical to work as a class bubble, for example, eating lunch, childcare and specialist clubs, we use larger year group bubbles;
- strict social distancing of 2m for all adults, including teachers, parents and visitors while on the school site;
- adults may wear a face-covering if they wish;
- the older the child, the higher the expectation on social distancing, especially keeping 2m away from adults. Children in Reception and Nursery are not expected to socially distance from adults due to their age;
- ventilation of classrooms with windows and doors open as much as possible, blasts of fresh air to blow the virus away;
- most staff continue to use a LFD test twice a week to check for any COVID-19 infection;
- starting to return to inter-school sport competitions with strict COVID-safety measures.
If there is any confirmed case of COVID-19 in a child or adult, we will tell you in Latest News and contact you by email if your child needs to self-isolate. It is likely that a class bubble will be sent home if a child or adult tests positive.
Thank you for working with us so that we all remain COVID-safe, staying open to as many pupils as possible for as long as possible.
