Letter from NHS about Covid

23 Sep 2020

Dear Parents / Carers,

Public Health England have produced a letter which is attached which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are.

The Department have asked that this letter be shared with our whole school community in order to clarify the position if your child is unwell.

The intention of the letter is to help prevent children being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents / carers may have around testing.

If you have any questions at all please email the school office on [email protected]

We are raising funds for our school

23 Jul 2020

Our school, like many others, has lost thousands of pounds during the time of COVID. We have seen our income reduce as we had no income from lettings, before and after school care, school clubs and school lunches for those children not covered by universal free school meals.

At the same time we have seen increased expenditure for PPE, hand sanitiser and for the training all staff received for us to receive our Certificate of Compliance with regard to COVID-19 and risk assessment.

There has currently been no additional money received from the government.

We are excited that our fund-raising campaign run by our PTFA for our new Key Stage 2 library has now reached £600. If you can give us a donation we would be most grateful. You can donate via the link below.
