We are so looking forward to welcoming back all children tomorrow. All of the information you need about this can be found on the Covid page of this website but there are just a couple of further bits of information that were missed:
- PE - the classes will still be doing PE each week and will be given a note saying when their PE sessions will take place. On the day your child is having a PE lesson they will need to come to school wearing their PE kit. Most PE lessons will take place outside, therefore we suggest a tracksuit and trainers.
- If your child uses an inhaler please make sure they bring a new one to school in a named bag.
There is a silly rumour being spread around on social media that schools will be testing children for COVID 19 and that children can be removed and isolated from their families. THIS IS NOT TRUE.
We do not test children in school. If we are concerned about a child having COVID we will ring parents and ask parents to take them to be tested. We would then wait to hear from the parents as to the result of the test. If COVID is suspected then we would sit the child in a safe place away from others, with a member of staff, until parents arrive. This is only to help stop any potential spread of germs.
I am very annoyed that this rumour is being circulated and that it is worrying parents at this already very stressful time.
School will be a safe place for your children and it is very important that they return to carry on with their learning and to meet with friends.
If you have any concerns please get in touch via the school office.
