Coronavirus Information: Class Closures
I am writing to inform you that there has been a positive case of Coronavirus in your child’s pathway. As well as this, a number of staff members have been contacted to self-isolate by Test and Trace. I have spoken at length to Public Health England about the safety measures we have been taking within our school. They are satisfied that we have taken all the correct precautions and we have thorough methods in place to keep our school community safe. However, due to the lack of staff now available for this pathway, we cannot have Willow pathway in school for the rest of the week. Children from Robins, Frogs and Hedgehogs class will be able to return to school on Monday 22nd March. Children in Stoats class will be able to return on Tuesday 23rd March. Transport have been notified.
If during this period, your child or anyone in your household 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) please follow guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection, which sets out that you should arrange to have a test to see if they or you have Coronavirus (COVID-19). You can book a test online at nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or call 119. Please email the results of any tests taken by members of your household during the isolation period as we need this information in order to safely bring your child back to school. Please email any results to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be vigilant in continuing to look for the symptoms of Coronavirus. There is further advice about symptoms of Coronavirus in Children here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/ If your child or a household member has symptoms of Coronavirus and you need further advice you can call NHS 111.
You will already have received your child’s remote learning plan previously from the class teacher. Please contact them through ClassDojo if you need anything further sending to you.
If you have any concerns or queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. As always, your child’s safety is our utmost priority.
