Keeping our community safe

 In order for schools to remain open and we have been asked to follow a detailed set of guidance.  All members of our community must play their part in following expectations set by the school.  The core control measures are contained within the risk assessment.  This is a working document and as our practices are continually being reviewed, control measures may be added to or adapted.  

Detailed guidance has been given to parents and is available below.  It is important that we all work together to keep each other safe. 

Your child has been asked to self-isolate - what does this mean?

Further guidance about self-isolating

Parents and carers that are self-isolating


If you are a parent or carer and have been asked to self-isolate as part of a bubble at work or because you have come into close contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus – you must follow the national self-isolation guidance and stay at home for 14 days:


  • This applies even if you have no symptoms and/or you have received a negative test result as it can take 14 days for transmission
  • Self-isolation rules do not apply to the rest of your household, they can still attend work or school and complete day to day tasks in line with Government guidance
  • If you develop symptoms while self-isolating, your entire household must begin self-isolating immediately
  • If you would normally travel with your child(ren) to nursery, school or college, alternative arrangements should be made
  • If you cannot make alternative travel arrangements for your child(ren), then they too must stay at home. However please contact us at school first to see if we would be able to support in anyway. 

Please do not send child(ren) to school if they have any symptoms of coronavirus. If you’re not sure, consult the online NHS symptom checker at:


Only book a test if you or your child(ren)develop symptoms, book at or call 119 if you do not have internet access.
