The school will open on a part time basis for childen from Pre-school, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 from 2nd June 2020. The school continues to be open on a full time basis for Key Worker and vulnerable children.
Although the DFE are encouraging pupils of Key Workers and the relevant year groups to attend school, it is not compulsory and no fine will be issued. For more information please see: Government Guidance.
If your child or a family member develops symptoms of COVID-19 then your child cannot attend school and you must inform school immediately. If they are at school they will be sent home and told to self-isolate for 7 days. Their fellow household members must self-isolate for 14 days. (It is likely that your child will be absent for 14 days if a household member is required to bring them to school). Children attending school will have access to a test if they display symptoms of coronavirus, and are encouraged to get tested in this scenario.
Where a child tests negative, they can return to their setting and the fellow household members can end their self-isolation.
If a child, or staff member, tests positive, the rest of their group in school will be sent home and asked to self-isolate for 14 days, the whole group will be unable to attend school. The other household members of the children in the group do not need to self-isolate. However, if your child subsequently develops symptoms then you must inform school immediately. As above, all family household members will then be required to self-isolate for 14 days.
As part of the national test and trace programme, if other cases are detected within the group or in the wider setting, Public Health England's local health protection teams will conduct a rapid investigation and will advise us on the most appropriate action to take. This may well lead to additional children/staff being asked not to attend school for a period of time.
