Covid-19 Information

Our school family has been working hard since our return in September to keep everyone happy and safe in school. We have staggered our drop off and pick up times, as well as our playtimes.  Our children are now working and playing in their own class bubbles. We are encouraging parents to leave the site as soon as they have dropped off and collected their children. 

 

Our protocols for dropping off and collecting children:

In order to reduce the number of adults dropping off and collecting children at any one time, we have allocated ten-minute time slots to parents of children in individual classes. Our plans ensure there is no change to the length of time your children spend in school. Parents are asked to adhere to these times. In the case of families with children in different classes, we ask that all siblings are dropped off together at the allocated time slot for the youngest child in the family, and that they are collected together at the allocated time slot for the eldest child in the family.

Key information for parents:

Schools in Lancashire have been asked schools to share the following with parents to help us limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community:

 

  • Please inform school immediately when you get a test result. If you need to contact school at the weekend, please email Mr Kearon. It would be helpful to include a contact telephone number in your email should Mr Kearon need to contact you by phone. This will help us to make plans for pupils who may need to isolate from the Monday morning.
  • Parents should be aware that schools cannot share the personal details of confirmed cases within the school community.
  • If your child is sent home to isolate from school, this also means they have to isolate from all other activities, events and occasions.
  • Please be a role model for your children in terms of keeping socially distanced from others when collecting/dropping off at school.
  • Be prepared to have to collect your child from school during each school day as the requirement to isolate can occur at any time; have a back-up plan if you will be in work.
  • The completion of remote learning is no longer optional. As a family, you need to be prepared for your child(ren) to learn at home. They will need a quiet space to work. They may need access to equipment such as pens, paper, internet access and access to a computer or tablet device.
  • It is widely recognised that children cannot socially distance in schools – please be aware that is the staff who have to socially distance from each other and pupils. Schools are securing safe distancing through consistent seating plans, reduced contact between classes, staggered starts and managed break times.
  • It is important that young people continue to follow social distancing guidance when out of school and do not congregate in groups or disregard the 2 metre rule.
  • Check school website for the most up to date information.
  • Consider the impact of possible quarantine on your child's attendance before booking overseas travel, e.g. at October half term.

 

We will be continually reviewing and updating our risk assessments, systems of controls and processes to ensure we respond effectively to the ever-changing situations. 

 

Below, you will find information relating to our school response to the current COVID-19 situation and links to government information.

   

If you have any questions or concerns, please do contact the school office and we will be happy to help.
