Monday 14th December 2020
Thank you for everything you have done to reduce the spread of COVID19 within our community. Your help and support is always gratefully received.
However, despite everyone’s hard work and the recently launched vaccination programme, the COVID19 virus remains amongst us for the foreseeable future.
We are writing to ask you to work with us over the first half of the Christmas break to continue the fight against the virus.
If your child / any of your children develop coronavirus symptoms within 2 days of their last day at school and then subsequently test positive for coronavirus, or if they don't have symptoms undertake a coronavirus test within 2 days of their last day at school, then you should contact us through the school email: firstname.lastname@example.org or normal school texts.
For example, pupils who attend school on the last day of term on Friday 18th December, this would mean notifying us of pupil symptoms developing on the Friday 18th or Saturday 19th December or Sunday 20th December. Please make sure you keep a close eye on these social media platforms/website, emails and texts, throughout the holiday.
To get a test use the NHS COVID-19 app, via www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling NHS on 119. Many test results are now being received 48 hours after the test.
We will make sure staff from our school will be available on 18th, 19th and 20th December 2020 and available at these times 12:00 midday and 15:00 to receive your messages;
We will then, as a school, take advice from Public Health England in terms of notifying other children, families, school staff or bubbles to self-isolate.
Kind Regards and thank you for your continued suppor
Mrs Shewley Choudhury
