Coronavirus Risk Assessment
Our Risk Assessment has been reviewed in the light of revised advice from The Department for Education in August. Within school, we will continue to use extra hygiene measures and ventilation to try to reduce transmission of the Covid-19 virus. Break and lunchtimes will continue to be staggered and class bubbles will be maintained as far as possible. School Staff will keep undertaking Lateral Flow Tests twice weekly.
Any members of the school community - staff, children or parents, who test positive with a LFT test or show symptoms, should isolate and take a PCR test. Anyone with a positive PCR test result will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace and asked to isolate for 10 days.
Close contacts of a confirmed case, who are are under 18 years 6 months old, or who have been double vaccinated, do not technically need to isolate. However, to prevent the spread of Covid-19, we kindly request that if your child tests positive you kindly also keep all siblings at home. The same applies if a parent tests positive, it is highly likely that your child could spread the virus should attend school during your isolation period.
Morning and End of Day Arrangements
In the morning, please wait with your child(ren) at the end of the lane, keeping 2m apart from other families. Mrs Humphery will indicate when children can start to walk down the lane (this will not be before 8.35am). Please make sure your children are at school by 8.50am at the latest.
The end of the day will remain staggered for the time being:
- 3.05pm Infants only
- 3.10pm Infants/KS2 pupils
- 3.15pm KS2 pupils only
Parents are requested to wait at the blue gate, queuing 2m apart, if necessary, until they are invited on to the field to collect their children.
Parents with children in Reception and KS1 can collect all their children together directly from the Reception play area. They do not need to go onto the field.
Unless you have a child in Reception, please go back down the slope, rather than down the steps using the one way system. Please keep your children with you and take care, keeping to the right, to avoid bumping into other parents coming up the slope.
Parents with children in Reception and KS2 should collect their older children from the field first and then go to the Reception play area.
Please do not wait outside the Hall when collecting your children, as you will be in the way of KS2 children going up onto the field.
Thank you for your co-operation. Please follow these rules and help to keep everyone safe.
