Important Update

Many of you may have watched the update from the government on Saturday, regarding the new omicron variant of COVID-19 in the UK. Today we have had advice from the DFE, for all staff to go back to mask wearing in communal areas.


Firstly, I would like to reassure you of the measures that are currently in place in school. We have 3 assembly times where Year 1 and 2 are together, with a space between them. At all other times, children are only mixing with children in the same year group. We fog all classrooms every day. Staff regularly clean touch points and tables throughout the day. Children use hand sanitiser on entry to classrooms and regular hand washing takes place. The library is open to one year group per day. We will take advice from the DFE when issued, if we need to further strengthen these measures.


As an extra safety measure, to help keep adults safe at drop off and pick up, we request that face masks are worn again, and to keep 2m from the classroom doors. We would really appreciate it if everyone can do this from tomorrow morning(Monday 29th November). One adult per child group/family is still in place too. We hope with these extra measures we can try to keep our school community safer.


Thank you for your cooperation.


Kind regards


Mrs Riches
