School Update 10.12.2020


COVID-19 Reporting Arrangements, Christmas 2020


On behalf of all the staff we would like to thank our families for the support we have received throughout this year. Although it has been a challenge for us all, we feel that our system of controls has worked well during this national emergency and, with your cooperation, will continue to do so.  With this in mind, we ask that, if your child develops any of the key COVID-19 symptoms (listed below) after school on Friday 18 December to Sunday 20 December 2020 and goes on to receive a positive test you must email  with the following information: 


  • name and class of the infected child,
  • the date they first had symptoms
  • confirming that they have received a positive test.


This is very important that you let us know as soon as a positive test is received, as it allows us to trace anyone that had close contact within school, for a 48-hour period prior to symptoms developing. We will then advise all contacts to self-isolate for 14 days.


If you require support whilst isolating you can contact the Here 2 Help service at:
