Although we are are now at step 3 of the roadmap set out by the prime minister, parents that people should not travel to ‘amber’ and ‘red’ countries, and that strict rules on testing and quarantine remain in place to protect public health and the vaccination programme. Further information can be found in the guidance on red, amber and green list rules for entering England. For the latest Government guidance visit: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
We’ve been working closely with the local public health team to ensure we’re following the latest Government guidance and necessary precautions to make our school COVID-secure so we’re ready to welcome pupils back from the 8 March. Although infection rates are coming down gradually in the area, we can all play our part to help reduce transmission of the virus by following these simple measures.
- Wash your hands frequently with soap and warm water or hand sanitiser
- Wear a face covering when entering public indoor buildings or travelling on public transport
- Make space by keeping a two-metre distance from anyone outside your household, where possible
- Self-isolate with your household and get a test if you have COVID-19 symptoms by calling 119 or visiting uk/coronavirus.
- Self-isolate for 10 days if you are a contact of a confirmed case
Pupils and families are also reminded to follow the COVID-19 safety measures we have in place at our school.
- All adults to wear a face covering when visiting or entering the school/early years premises including outdoor yard areas.
- Parents/carers to arrive and leave promptly when dropping off/collecting their child – please do not congregate and maintain social distancing as we know that the virus is easily transmitted from person to person.
- In schools where it has been agreed that a parent/carer can enter the school premises for drop-off and pick-up, only one adult should enter.
- Pupils are to avoid congregating outside school, mixing with pupils from other schools and should go directly home. Don’t congregate on the way to or from school. Play your part to turn this around.https://vimeo.com/user22784367/review/519424878/60b560194e
