We are continuing to monitor the small number of cases in school and will be continuing to restrict the mixing of phases where ever possible. This means we will not be planning any whole school assemblies or events in the next half term. We will continue to go ahead with planned trips and events as they are usually organised with the phases, this means we are limiting contact with others and any potential spread of the virus. School will remain open and we will try to keep the day to day running as familiar as possible to the children.
Guidance for isolating has changed significantly, with regular updates being added. If your child has symptoms, tests positive or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive, please call school and we will advise you on any action you will need to take. The following letter offers some guidance and advice following a small number of cases in school.

Unfortunately due to a small number of positive COVID cases across school we are having to make some changes to some of the events we had planned for the end of the half term. Although the cases are few and do not warrant any specific actions from Public Health England, we feel these small steps taken in school, will help minimise further transmissions before the half term holiday.
Friday celebration assembly – awards will still be given to children for their achievements but these will be sent out via Marvellous Me or tapestry. We will return to welcoming parents into assembly after the half term break if possible.
Harvest Festival celebration – We are no longer inviting parents into school for this. We will however film the phase contributions and share these on the school website.
Parents Evening – Appointments will be changed to telephone appointments instead of face to face meetings in school. Some of you may already have an appointment time, information regarding these appointments will be sent out shortly. We will try and keep any appointments that have already been agreed but these will be confirmed and take place via telephone.
Y5/6 football tournament – We have also had to withdraw from the inter school football competition that was due to take place this Friday. We have explained this to the children and reassured them that we will take part in future events as soon as we are able to.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We are all very much looking forward to getting back to normal, but realise it is important that we do this safely and gradually.

We are seeing an increase in positive cases in school. Although we no longer need to close bubbles and isolate there are some simple steps to take to minimise infections. In school all children will continue to be encouraged to wash their hands and clean down areas that they use. Public Health England have offered further guidance should you have concerns about symptoms or action you can take at home. If your child has any symptoms please ensure they are tested before returning to school. If you have any questions please ring the office or 111.
