Update information for families due to Covid-19

Dear Families,

Thank you for your support again last week, especially the parents of children in Robins Class. Hopefully we won’t have any more unexpected glitches linked to the building work. Because the Reception Class children were not in school on Monday we didn’t take sibling photographs. These will now be taken on Tuesday 17th November.

Although we are now in the new ‘lockdown’, this will not affect arrangements for the children in school. We have made some changes to ensure staff can work safely and Mrs Mills has been required to shield for medical reasons. It will continue to be our policy not to wear masks in school however, staff have been issued with a face shield which they may choose to use when meeting with other adults.

We will also continue to keep classrooms well ventilated as this is recommended as the best strategy to reduce the risk of spreading the virus in confined spaces. As a result, the rooms may get quite cold. Please ensure your child has the option of an extra layer to keep warm. We don’t want the children wearing their coats in class but we are happy for you to send a fleece, gilet or similar to put on if they feel cold.

I am delighted that most children now have wellies in school. This will enable us to maintain our socially distance playtimes. If you are unable to provide boots for your child, please send a private message to the class teacher on Seesaw and we will discuss how we can support you. We are still waiting for our storage racks (usual Covid related excuse from the suppliers!).

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns

Alun Davies (Headteacher)
