Changes to Covid-19 Safety Measures from Monday 28 June 2021

The following changes to Covid-19 Safety Measures in School from Monday 28 June 2021.

Based on advice from Public Health England and in light of the significant rise in cases involving the Delta variant. We are reintroduction of face coverings for pupils, students and staff within indoor communal/high traffic areas or settings where social distancing cannot be maintained, for a temporary period. We therefore strongly recommend that your child wears a face covering from Monday 28 June and from Tuesday 29 June this will be compulsory, unless your child has an exemption. All of the other Covid-19 safety measures continue to be in place to minimise risks to pupils and make the school as safe as possible. 

A reminder is as follows: 

  1. Staggered start and end times to the school day; separate entrances to school 
  2. Staggered break and lunchtimes, separate venues; cleaned between year groups 
  3. Social distancing particularly from other year groups where possible 
  4. Sanitising of hands on entrance to and exit from classroom; cleaning of learning area at the start of the lesson; hand sanitisers around the building 
  5. One-way system in place 
  6. 4-week timetable in place to further reduce movement of pupils around the building

Changes to Covid-19 Safety Measures from Monday 17 May 2021

The following changes to Covid-19 Safety Measures in School from Monday 17 May 2021.

  1. Face-coverings are no longer required to be worn by pupils in classrooms or in communal areas. However, “The reintroduction of face coverings for pupils, students or staff may be advised for a temporary period in response to particular localised outbreaks, including variants of concern”. If any pupils wish to continue to wear a face-covering, they can do so. 
  2. Pupils and staff should continue to use lateral flow tests twice a week. 
  3. All other safety measures will remain in place, the most important of which is the washing/sanitising of hands throughout the day and the cleaning of work areas at the start of each lesson. 

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you of the main symptoms of Covid-19:

If your child develops any of the symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home and arrangements should be made for them to be tested.
