Throughout the pandemic, we have developed and maintained a detailed Covid-19 operating framework and associated risk assessments that continue to guide our approach and ensure that our community’s health, safety and wellbeing remain our priority.

Since the last update to our documentation in April, and as per the Government’s roadmap through the easing of restrictions across England, there has been a further update to how schools can operate that was issued on 10th May in advance of the changes coming into effect on 17th May. In turn, we have updated our Covid-19 Framework to reflect our response to this change in Government guidance.

To support our community with making decisions about coming to school in different circumstances related to Covid-19, we have compiled a ‘Should You or Your Child Come to School?’ guide that outlines the steps that should be taken in the event that someone in your family or with whom you have had contact has symptoms or a positive test result. We continue to be immensely grateful to all our community for their support and adherence to the adjusted mechanisms that we have put in place to keep everyone safe and happy.

In addition, we continue to make available our Contingency Plan, and associated guides, which detail how we would ensure continuity of learning and care in the event that an individual, small group, ‘bubble’ or the whole school is required to stay at home for a period of time.
