Message from the headteacher

Dear Parents and Carers, as we continue to live within the Covid restrictions currently in place and the increasing proximity of the Delta variant may I ask for your support with the following please:

* encouraging your son/daughter to wear their mask travelling to, in and around and travelling from school,

* ensuring that twice weekly LFTs are taken at home,

* ensuring that the results of these tests are logged with school and the NHS,

* ensuring that school is informed if your LFT results are positive,

* ensuring that a PCR test is taken should your LFT is positive,

* informing school immediately if anyone at home displays any Covid related symptoms whether the more usual or those loosely connected with Covid,

* keeping your child/children at home should you suspect either they or anyone in your family are displaying any Covid symptoms, seeking a PCR test and not sending them back to school until your results are returned and are negative.

Since our return in early March we have maintained a healthy and productive school environment. Our children have had a largely uninterrupted number of months and it is so very important that we maintain this current stability over the next 5 weeks especially as our children are in the midst of their end of year PPEs.

As always your support is greatly appreciated.

Take care and God bless,

Mrs Bowen
