First of all, welcome back! Thank you for your support and patience over the last few days as we start to return all pupils to school. It has been really pleasing to see the school full again. The children have been an absolute credit to you all and have settled in fantastically well to our new routines.
I appreciate there have been a number of changes to routines and usual practice but please understand everything we are doing is in the best interests of everyone’s safety and we are following the Department for Education guidance. Some of the new routines may seem strange but please remember this is new to us as well and we are trying to find our way, doing the best we can in an unprecedented situation. As we move through the term we will be reviewing our procedures finding what works well and adapting as we need to, I do ask for your patience as we do this.
Over the last few days I have spoken to a number of parents about children feeling ill with cold like symptoms, this is a very strange time and increased anxiety regarding coronavirus has obviously made the situation more difficult.
The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
- A high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
If you or your child is displaying any of these symptoms we ask that you do not attend school and ARE tested for coronavirus, on most occasions test results come back with 24 hours and children can return to school straight away following a negative test. I am unable to provide medical advice as to whether you should send your child to school, and if you are in any doubt or worried please use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service.
If you have any questions about any of the routines we have put it place please phone the school or speak to me on the playground, I am available each morning.
Thank you for your continued support as we move forward in this unprecedented situation together.
Mr C. Dobson
