COVID-19 support

This page has been created to give parents all relevant information about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Please see below for:

  • Key symptoms of COVID-19 and where to get help.
  • Useful links to guidance, including links to Public Health England.
  • All correspondence sent to parents, from the school, regarding the partial closure, COVID-19 response and provisions in place.

Our risk assessment for mitigating risks associated with COVID-19 can be found below.

Additionally, there are some links below with advice on overcoming anxiety around COVID-19 and also some written advice in different languages:


Keeping safe

Now that all children are back in school, we ask:

  • Parents enter the grounds at their specified drop off and pick up time via the bottom gate and wait behind the cones/tape for their child.
  • All parents/carers wear a mask (unless exempt) when dropping off/collecting their child from the playground.
  • Parents and children leave the school via the top gate, following the one-way system and leaving the pathway clear when waiting for a child.
  • If collecting siblings, parents/carers should arrive to collect them at the latest time for the children's year groups (e.g. if collecting a Y6 child and a Y1 child, parent/carers should arrive at Y1's collection time to avoid waiting on the playground unnecessarily).  Siblings waiting for parents will be supervised by their teacher.
  • No visitors enter the school other than the stated drop off/pick up times for parents/carers.
  • If your child has an appointment, they are permitted to arrive later via the school's main entrance, but please be vigilant with distancing in the office area.


Government guidances states:

  • Stay alert, Control the virus, Save Lives

  • Wash your hands, cover your face and keep your space.

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible).
  • Wash your hands regularly.
  • Wear a face mask indoors in public places, e.g. shops, cafes, museums etc.
  • Self-isolate if you (10 days) or anyone in your household (14 days) has symptoms until any relevant Coronvirus test result comes back negative.  If positive, self-isolate for 10 days (14 days for members of the same household).

How to keep yourself and your family safe:

  • Wash your hands with soap and water (sing Happy Birthday!) throughout the day.  Click here for advice on hygiene during this time.
  • Dry your hands - this makes your hands less hospitable for the virus! 
  • Use hand sanitiser.
  • Wash your hands when you get home, visit other places, before you touch food, when you handle something that doesn't belong to you.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Wear clean clothes each day.
  • Cough or sneeze into a tissue (or use your elbow to cover your mouth).
  • Stay home (see above).
  • Make a plan (e.g. how/when you will buy food to be out as little as possible).
  • Wear a mask on public transport and in shops.


Symptoms and help for COVID-19

The most common symptoms are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • anosmia - this means a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell

What to do if you think you or someone in your household have symptoms:

  • Do not go to your doctors' surgery, pharmacy or hospital, even if symptoms persist.
  • Self-isolate immediately if you or a member of your household has symptoms.
  • Book you (or the member of your household) a COVID-19 test online.
  • Self-isolate until the test result(s) come back.  If the result is negative, then you can resume usual activities.  If it is positive, the person tested must self-isolate for 14 days while the rest of the household must self-isolate for 10 days.
  • If you have tested positive whilst not experiencing symptoms but develop symptoms during the isolation period, you should restart the 10-day isolation period from the day you develop symptoms.
  • You can use this online questionnaire to check if you have symptoms: click here.
