Thank you parents and carers!
Early in January, I wrote to all parents and carers to ask for your help in making sure the school stayed fully open to all students despite what was happening with the new variant of Covid. I asked you to test your children regularly, encouraging vaccination and the wearing of reusable face coverings. Right the way through January, staff continued to test themselves daily and wore face coverings wherever this didn’t interfere with learning or communication. I want to thank you for everything you have done to keep the school community safe, and our actions together mean that the school has not closed for even 1 class for 1 day.
We do still have some staff and students off with Covid and Public Health England still want our students and staff to wear face coverings in communal areas, and even in class if it doesn’t interfere with learning. We will also continue to emphasise hand cleansing, and ventilating classrooms at intervals throughout the day.
Update on vaccination: Friday February 11th
We know that many parents/ carers have already made their own arrangements for their child to receive their Covid vaccinations, but some have found it a challenge to do so. To make life easier, the School Vaccination Team will be in school again on Friday 11th February offering 1st dose and 2nd dose vaccinations. They will need your consent to take up this offer via the online Consent Form, which will need to be completed no later than Wednesday 9th February. We will be texting this link to all parents and carers, as many of you find it easier to complete forms on your phone. This link also has some useful resources about Covid-19 vaccinations for children and young people.
