New Covid updates from the government

I’m sure by now that you know we only find out what is happening in schools from the news at the same as you, which is frustrating! However, we do thankfully get follow up emails from the dfe every day with the finer details!

I just want to share and clarify a few of the most recent updates:

  • The school will be CLOSED for all pupils at half term week beginning 15th February, and there will be no online learning set or expected during that week;
  • School will reopen for critical workers and vulnerable children on February 22nd;
  • March 8th is the earliest possible date that other pupils could return. This may be a phased return with certain year groups, but we do not know;
  • All school staff now have the option to take a Lateral Flow Covid-19 test twice a week. The kits were delivered to school and testing started this week. If a staff member tests positive on their LFT, the bubble they are associated with will close for 10 days, as per the guidance. We hope that this will help us identify asymptomatic cases and stop the spread of covid in our community;
  • We will be working with trace and trace for the first 48 hours of half term and you will see a separate news post explaining what to in detail if your child develops symptoms during half term. Please read this carefully.
  • please complete our parent/carer survey to help us improve our home-school offer – it’s not too late!

Thank you so much for all your support and positive comments – they make the world of difference to us.
