Partial School close to pupils in our Reception classes (Chicks and Ducklings Class) as of Monday 6th December 2021
Unfortunately we have had to partially close the school to pupils in our Reception classes (Chicks and Ducklings Class) as of Monday 6th December 2021 as we do not have enough staff to operate safely due to increased cases of COVID-19.
At this time school remains open to pupils attending Nursery, Year 1 and Year 2.
We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause. The leadership team are working closely with public health and other agencies to enable us to re-open as quickly as possible.
Information is available on the school website and can be found using the links below.
Before accessing the internet please review the following link which contains information about supporting your child to understand how to keep safe when accessing the internet.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and support during this extremely difficult time. If you have any questions that are urgent then please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance and we will get back to you as quickly as we can.

Anti-Bullying Week is coordinated In England and Wales by the Anti-Bullying Alliance and takes place from 15 to 19 November 2021 and it has the theme One Kind Word. The week will begin in school with Odd Socks Day on Monday 15th October which is supported by CBBC and CBeebies star Andy Day and his band Andy and the Odd Socks. Please share the video below with your children.
Additional Measures Now in Place
We have received notice from Vicky Head, Director of Public Health, informing us that the rates of infection among school-aged children has significantly increased, therefore additional measures are being put in place in all schools and colleges from immediate effect to reduce transmission and keep educational disruption as low as possible. Please see attached a letter to parents/carers from Vicky Head.
A whole school risk assessment and action plan has been produced and agreed by the Governing Board to ensure that measures are in place in line with Government and the Department of Education guidelines for the academic year 2021 -2022. These measures are in place to try to reduce the transmission to families and the wider community however there is still an unknown level or risk which we cannot control. The procedures and processes are to be followed by the whole school community which are linked to the risk assessment which can be found below.
Please note that if your child displays any signs of COVID-19:
- A high temperature (this also includes feeling hot to touch on the chest or back).
- A new continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours.
- A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different than usual.
Then they will need to take a PCR test (Tests can be booked here.) and self-isolate until the results area available. If you have recently travelled abroad please telephone school and check the updated information for self-isolation before returning your child back to school.
Thank you for your continued support.
