WHOLE SCHOOL COVID RISK ASSESSMENT
In the light of the updated guidance for schools, I have updated our Covid-19 risk assessment. You can view the latest version by clicking on the link below:
You may have heard that there have been changes to the expectations of children and staff wearing face coverings in school. As the guidance still encourages face coverings to be worn when social distancing is difficult, I ask that parents, carers and staff still wear face coverings during the drop off and collection windows, to reduce the chance of transmission. However, if you are in school at less busy times, as long as social distancing can be maintained and you wash your hands and the space you are using can be well ventilated, staff and parents will not have to wear face coverings although individuals can still do so if they wish to. These changes come into effect on Monday.
EXTERNAL CHILDCARE PROVIDERS
If you are using external childcare providers (e.g. childminders) or extra-curricular activities not provided by school for your children, schools have been asked to advise you to limit the use of multiple out-of-school settings providers, and to only use one out-of-school setting in addition to school as far as possible. Please check providers have put in place their own protective measures.

We await further updates to national guidance as we continue to follow the government's roadmap to the easing of coronavirus restrictions. As soon as new guidance is published, we will make the necessary changes to our provision and inform you as soon as possible.
As always, if you have any concerns about this, please don't hesitate to contact the school office.
Have a relaxing weekend!
