COVID 19 updates

All schools received catch-up funding. This document provides destails of how that funding has been spent at our school. Please note, this details only a small part of our programme for catch up; it captures the support provded by this particular funding.


Track and Trace

You may have seen on the news that schools have been asked to play a role in the national test and trace system throughout the pandemic. This has involved receiving notifications of positive test results from families and staff members, contacting the Department for Education (DfE) and Public Health England (PHE) for advice, and then informing pupils, parents and staff about the need to self-isolate.

Over the Christmas period, schools are asked to continue to play this role for a six-day period which in our case will finish on 24 December. After the six days, we’ve been advised that we can stop checking for notifications from families, and there is no need for schools to be informed about potential pupil absence until the start of the spring term. So, if you are unlucky enough to contract the virus, or be in close contact with someone who has done so, please could you let school know, if the exposure occurs up to 24th December, in the following 2 ways.

1. Send us a message via messenger.

2. Send a text to: 07718425212

The information you need to send is:

* Child’s name/ DOB / class

* When symptoms started, or the date of the test if asymptomatic

* The test date

* When the child was last in school

From the 25th December, you are advised to use the normal track and trace system. Should I hear about a case of Covid-19, I will inform families via a text message.

Many thanks, Mrs Wright
