Safer School Meeting 2022 – UPDATE

We had a good meeting today with Ian Bartlett, Crime Prevention Officer from Shropshire Council, Many thanks for all of the questionnaire which were returned.

It is, and always has been a great concern about the road/crossing outside school and the traffic passing through the village and this was evident in the parent questionnaires. Sadly the safer school scheme only relates to the school building and its grounds NOT the road outside.

We have asked Ian for his advice and he has recommended that ANY incidents/near misses outside of the school building relating to the traffic or any issues crossing the road etc, should be informed to school. We will then log these and have the evidence to back up the community/parents & staff concerns.

If anyone would like to discuss this further please call in to the school office and speak to Mrs Smith.

‘Brazil’ workshop

We all had a fantastic day! There are many photos and videos to be shared soon. This is just a snapshot of the Brazil-themed workshop.

All children attended 4 different sessions, exploring our Christian values, diversity, learning about other cultures and respect in sport. The energy in School was fantastic and the whole atmosphere was wonderful.

During the Brazil workshop, Mrs Crowe spoke about growing up in South America, shared some interesting facts and introduce the traditions of Carnival. All children decorated a carnival mask to take home. The results were very impressive indeed!

Tiger Class – Positive LFD Result

We’’ve been made aware of a positive LFT result in Tiger class. We are awaiting results of the pcr test and will update you more when we can. In the meantime, we strongly recommend lateral flow testing your child, daily from today, for the next 7 days to try to prevent the spread. This decision follows the updated government guidance received today for close contacts.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact school on 01939 290834.



COVID-19 Guidance – Notice to ALL Parents

Please see below a table for a reminder of the current COVID-19 guidelines we are following.  Please pay particular attention to the second scenario relating to colds, headaches, sore throats and tummy aches etc.


Next Steps

Child shows symptoms of COVID-19

  • a high temperature
  • a new, continuous cough
  • a loss or change to sense of smell or taste

Child must self-isolate for 10 days, or until a negative PCR test result has been received.

Lateral flow tests should not be used if a child has symptoms. 

Child feels unwell e.g. cold, headache, sore throat, tummy ache etc. but has no main COVID-19 symptoms.

We would strongly advise that you take your child for a PCR test and keep them at home until a negative result has been received.

Someone in the household receives a positive PCR result.

All household contacts of a confirmed positive case should undertake a PCR test, with or without symptoms, and should remain home and not come into school until a negative PCR is returned.

Rapid lateral flow tests will not suffice.

If the PCR result is negative, then pupils can return to school but we would advise that a further PCR test is taken after 4 or 5 days as a precaution.  Pupils can continue to attend school whilst waiting on the second PCR result.

Child is identified as a close contact of someone (outside of their household) who has had a positive PCR result.

We would strongly advise that you take your child for a PCR test. However, they can continue to attend school as normal whilst waiting for the results, unless they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or feel at all unwell.
