Dear Parents,

 

Happy New Year!

 

We look forward to welcoming the children back to school tomorrow morning, Wednesday 5 January, providing they are well.

 

Covid-19 cases are rising rapidly, but we are trying to do all we can to keep our school community safe.  Please do not send your child into school if they have a cough, high temperature or loss of taste or smell. We will ask you to book your child a PCR test, and keep them at home until you receive the result.

 

You may be aware that the Government have altered the rules around self-isolation following a positive Covid-19 test. Your child may now be able to end their self-isolation period before the end of the 10 full days. They can take an LFD test from 6 days after the day their symptoms started (or the day the test was taken if they did not have symptoms), and another LFD test on the following day. The second LFD test should be taken at least 24 hours later. If both these test results are negative, and your child does not have a high temperature, they may end their self-isolation after the second negative test result.

 

You should report the LFD test results for your child online after taking each test, and you will then receive either a text message or email confirming the negative result for each day. BOTH negative test results must be emailed to the school office before your child returns to school. 

 

If you are unable to provide the school with the proof of both negative results, your child will need to complete the full 10-day isolation period as before.

 

We hope you understand the reasons behind us being this cautious, it is done with the best interests of all the children and staff in school and the wider community.

 

Kind regards,

 

Mrs Kang

We regret to inform you that the Infant School will be closed on MONDAY 10 May, due to a fault with the school's fire alarm system. We apologise for the inconvenience we know this may cause, but the health and safety of the children must be our main priority.

 

Due to the unexpected closure children will be set work on Google Classroom at 9.00am on Monday morning for them to complete that day.

 

We hope to reopen on Tuesday 11 May, but we will keep you updated.
