I am very pleased to be able to inform you that school will be open again on Monday. I have notified transport accordingly.
Following public health advice & government guidance, your child should return to school on Monday providing they remain well. This guidance can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/guidance-for-full-opening-schools#soc
However, if your child becomes unwell with a new and persistent cough, or a high temperature, or has a loss of or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), you must keep them at home and you must follow guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, which sets out that your child should self-isolate for at least 10 days and you should arrange to have a test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19). You can book a test online at nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or call 119.
Please be vigilant in continuing to look for the symptoms of Coronavirus. If your child or a household member has symptoms of Coronavirus and you need further advice you can call NHS 111.
You must keep your child off school for 48 hours if they have nausea, diarrhoea or any other signs of illness. Please ring the school office to let us know.
If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. We are committed to keeping our Oaklands community safe at all times, and we are particularly grateful for your support during this pandemic.
Have a good weekend,
Sarah Osborne (Headteacher)
