Dear Parents and Carers,
As we move into the second nationwide lockdown, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our pupils, staff and parents. Our risk assessment is as robust as possible and will allow school life to continue, as we have successfully done since we returned in September.
From October 22nd 2020, the Government set the expectation of provision of remote education in schools, under the Coronavirus Act 2020. This means schools have a duty to provide education to children at home, as they do when children are in the classroom. This helps provide assurances to both pupils and parents that if pupils have to self-isolate at home their education will not be disrupted. If your child/ren are self isolating and awaiting a test result, a personalised home learning pack will be issued to you in order that children can follow the learning taking place in the classroom and will be able to catch up quickly on return to school. You should expect a call from the Deputy Headteacher on the first day of isolation with information about the personalised learning pack. If a larger group needs to isolate, the school will provide 10 days of home learning which will be monitored by the teaching team. Please read the policy below for more details.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support during this time and for ensuring children attend school each day.
