Covid 19

During these unprecedented times, we will endeavour to include all the information children and their parents will need to know about how we are working hard to keep our school community safe.  Details about home learning are also included in the event that children are unable to attend school due to bubble closures or the need to self-isolate.

We have in place rigorous safety procedures and systems to ensure that our pupils and any visitors are safe and in a Covid secure environment, as far as we can manage.  Below are the risk assessments school has set in place to make sure that pupils, staff and visitors to our school adhere to our guidelines and protect our community.

A FAQ sheet has been put together for parents in anticipation of the school opening in September.  While we are settled into a routine now, many of these questions are pertinent to parents and the sheet can be found here

In the event that children are required to isolate or a class bubble closes, school will provide home learning packs supported by online learning.  Our Blended Learning Contingency Plan can be found here.

Further information about home learning for your child's class can be found on their class page under the Pupils tab and will be shared with children and staff on the Seesaw app.
