Covid and Home Learning
We are continually reviewing and updating our Covid risk assessment in light of updated guidance from DfE and internal reviews. These risk assessments are ratified by our Governing Body.
To keep everyone safe in school, our established system of controls includes:
Keeping class bubbles separate at all times
Enhanced hand hygiene
Extra cleaning protocols
Internal one-way system through the school building
Parents and Carers
Please adhere to the time allocated in our staggered entry and exit timings, and follow the one way system through the school grounds. Entry is via the footpath gate on Apton Road and exit is on the footpath between Apton Road and Windhill.
Please keep a social distance from other families, and leave the school grounds swiftly.
Face coverings are now optional on our school grounds, but remain mandatory inside the school building.
Updated guidance was received by DfE on Tuesday 6th July, which outlined restrictions and systems of control neccessary in schools from 19th July. This guidance will be used to inform our planning for September, which we will inform you of in due course. All current systems of control will remain until the end of the Summer Term on Tuesday 20th July 2021.
Below are a range of recommended websites to enhance the children's learning or to access in the event of your child not being able to attend school, including in the event of isolating or bubble/school closure.
In the event of your child having to isolate or their bubble/school being closed, work will be set directly by the class teacher within 2 working days. Please make use of these resources in the meantime to support your child's learning.
We have collected useful website links for you to access materials at home to help support and develop your child's learning. There are a lot here so just investigate them gradually. Please remember to check all videos and websites before showing them to your child to make sure the content is appropriate as we are unable to guarantee that changes have not occurred from the time of posting this. We will add to them as we find ones that we recommend so please keep looking back at this page. If you have any websites or apps you think would be good to share then please email them to us so that we can take a look.
