Engaging with the NHS Test and Trace process

Anyone who displays symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can and should get a test.

Tests can be booked online through the NHS testing and tracing for coronavirus website, or ordered by telephone via NHS 119 for those without access to the internet.

The most important symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

Parents/carers understand and will need to be ready and willing to:

Attendance & Uniform

School attendance will be mandatory again from the beginning of the autumn term. This means from that point, the usual rules on school attendance will apply, including:

All children will be required to be back in full school uniform (no ties) from September.  Children should come to school in their PE kit on the days they have PE.

Class PE Days
Year R Tuesday
Year 1 Tuesday
Year 2 Tuesday
Year 3 Tuesday
Year 4 Tuesday
Year 5 Friday
Year 6 Friday


Remote Learning Arrangements

If a family does not have access to a device that connects to the Internet, the school will support them to access one, if remote learning becomes necessary.

Individiual absences due to self-isolation

Children who are well enough to work are expected to access class English and Maths lessons daily. This will help children to still get quality first teaching and stay on track with the curriculum despite not being able to attend school.

Your child’s class teacher will send out a Zoom video conference link and password, as well as the timings of their Maths and English lessons. The same Zoom link and password will be used for all remote lessons. 

This will enable your child to access the input of these lessons and have full interactivity with the teacher and class through a home laptop or other smart device. The input of the lesson, as well as discussions in the classroom will be accessible and then the link will be closed down when it comes to the working section of the lesson to allow the child to complete the task(s) set, using Google Classroom.

For safeguarding reasons, the computer in the classroom will be at the front of the room facing only the teacher and any children in the classroom will not be able to be seen.

Work for other subjects will be set through Google Classroom as usual and your child’s class teacher will send home details of how to complete this work.

Free School Meals

If your child is entitled to Free School Meals (not the Universal Free School Meals available to all children in Years R,1 and 2), then your child will be provided with a packed lunch daily. This can be collected from the school – please let the school know whether you require this packed lunch, to avoid wastage.

Bubble closures & whole-school closures

The school successfully used Google Classroom as an online classroom environment during the first school closures. This will be used again, in the same manner, to allow all children to continue their education. Teachers will continue to follow the planned curriculum during any future partial or full school closures.
