Parent Update 68 - 21.01.2021
I am pleased to say that no further Covid cases have been reported to me since my message the other day. Please remain vigilant, and if any family member shows any signs of the Covid symptoms please get tested and keep your children off to isolate, until you get your results, even if they seem fine. Children often have no symptoms which makes it harder to track transmission.
Please remember that you should not be visiting other households unless they are your ONE support bubble household. You cannot have different bubbles for different reasons, and your children can't have different bubbles either. If you live in the same house you can only have one other household linked as your support bubble for childcare, or if one family consists of a single parent with children, they can have a support bubble with another family. Sadly, if these rules are not being followed, the children may not be allowed in school as they are increasing the risk of transmission due to mixing with other households, putting staff and other pupils at increased risk.
As from next week, the infant school will have 2 classes for all year groups (except nursery) due to increasing numbers. As I have said before, please be understanding of this as the teachers cannot be teaching and supporting on-line at the same time. They will check on-line learning when they can.
Finally - some lovely news - Mrs Clift, teacher in the junior school, gave birth to a healthy baby girl earlier this week. We wish her and her family many congratulations and look forward to seeing them at some stage in the future.
Please remember to ring into school if you need any support or advice.
With my very best wishes,
Mrs Sheila Pape,
