Educational Provision for Children of Key Workers

Educational provision for children of key workers will run 9am - 2pm Monday - Friday. 
This provision has been prioritised according to available staffing and government advice (which changes daily), and will be by prior arrangement with school ONLY. Any children who arrive at school without prior agreement WILL BE SENT HOME.*
If behaviour and attitude is a concern, the school will reserve the right to remove this provision. Likewise, if your child becomes ill or displays any signs of COVID-19, or anyone in the household displays signs of COVID-19, DO NOT send your child to school, instead follow government advice and inform school. 
Students attending this provision will not be expected to wear uniform, however, they should bring their pens, pencils etc., as normal. 
Lunch will be provided for all students.

New guidance for households with symptoms

 

The Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started

  • if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

  • for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation period.

 

The symptoms are:

  • A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)

  • A new, continuous cough
