As the new term of school has started we are aware that the children may become unwell with the cold/flu and other childhood illnesses that present during the colder months. The symptoms of these common illnesses are similar to that of the Coronavirus, we ask that if your child displays any of the symptoms outlined by the Government, that they isolate for 10 days and you seek advice, either from the GP or 119 and request a test. Your child should only return to school if the test shows a negative result or after your child has self -isolated for 10 days from the start of their symptoms. We are aware that there are issues around accessing tests and for this reason it is even more important that this advice is followed to protect everyone. Please inform the school as early as possible and keep us updated.
Thank you for your continued support and understanding
Travelling Safely to School
The Department for Transport has issued advice on how parents and pupils can travel to school safely as part of the #TravelSafely campaign. Resources have been developed to ensure that parents, pupils and staff have the information they need to stay safe on the public transport network. This includes information developed in collaboration with respected partners on how to cycle and walk safely, where possible.
