Parents' Guide | COVID-19 Information
Included on this page is information about how we are ensuring we keep our school community safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our detailed planning and ongoing review - following the latest guidance and advice - focusses on four key principles, which will mean school is as safe as possible.
Our key message is that if your child, or anyone in their household, has symptoms of COVID-19, they must stay at home and school should be informed straight away. Click here for our flowchart and guide to what to do if your child or someone in their household has symptoms. If you're not sure whether your child should attend school, please look at the chart here or get in touch before bringing your child to school.
Adults dropping off and collecting pupils are encouraged to wear a face covering in and around the school site when dropping off and collecting pupils. This is because social distancing cannot be maintained as easily as other times of the day or other areas of the school site. We recognise that some people are exempt from using face coverings and for this reason, school staff will be sensitive to these needs in enforcing the use of face coverings.
If entering our building, please wear a face covering.
Our school re-opening guide, below, provides more detailed information. A copy of our school risk assessment is also provided - please note this is regularly reviewed and updated.
What is the Catch Up Premium?
The government has announced £1 billion of funding to support children and young people to catch up in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. This includes a one-off universal £650 million catch-up premium for the 2020 to 2021 academic year to ensure that schools have the support they need to help all pupils make up for lost teaching time. Schools should use this funding for specific activities to support their pupils to catch up for lost teaching over the previous months, in line with the guidance on curriculum expectations for the next academic year. Schools have the flexibility to spend their funding in the best way for their cohort and circumstances. Please see our Catch Up Premium Strategy below.
