Covid 19 Amendment to our Behaviour Policy

 

Please click on the link below to be taken to our policies page which contains an Appendix to our Behaviour Policy. The policy has required an amendment due to the measures that have been introduced to support with the phased reopening of School.

Phased Re-Opening Plans

 

Please click on the link below to view communications regarding our phased re-opening plans.

 

We have been advised by Nottinghamshire County Council that they have had to adapt their

menu to cover the return to school plans. 

 

***Please see below for the interim menu***

 

Wherever possible, Christine will provide meals as detailed on the menu.

However, there may be small changes on some days due to potential disruption with the supply chain.

 

Your child can order a school meal on the day of attendance as normal.

Children who are Reception age; Brilliant Butterflies and Lovely Ladybirds.

What time are the current school sessions?

  • 9.00-3.15 Key Workers
  • 9.15-3.30 Lovely Ladybirds (and some Year 1 children from 29th June)

Your child will be greeted at the door by their teacher; please help us by leaving your child at that door. When dropping off and collecting them, please keep 2 meters away from others and encourage your child to do the same. We are asking that only one adult escort a child to school.

 

What will my child need to bring?

  • A water bottle - this will be taken home daily; please wash them thoroughly.
  • School meals will be available (to be ordered on the day) and a snack will be provided during the day. If you child requires a packed lunch, please send it in a disposable bag and your child may bring an additional healthy snack to eat.
  • Whilst uniform rules are currently relaxed, please ensure your child wears appropriate clothing and footwear. We will be spending lots of time being active and outdoors. Please do not bring PE kits or book bags.
  • If we are blessed with some nice weather, please apply sun cream before they come to school and send them with a sunhat.

 

What measures have School introduced to minimise the current risks?

  • High staff to pupil ratios
  • Stringent and rigorous procedures on hygiene, cleaning and handwashing
  • Careful management of the environments to minimize risk
  • Minimising contact between groups of children to support tracking and tracing
  • Staggered timings for drop off, lunch and collection
  • Increased use of our extensive outdoor spaces

 

How can I help the school?

  • Please follow the Government guidelines with regard to social distancing, being alert and restricting social contact.
  • Strictly adhere to the rules if your child or a member of the household has symptoms.
  • Follow the guidelines for drop-off and collection times.
  • Follow any one way systems in place.
  • If you need to speak to the School Office, please adhere to the signage and distancing regulations.
  • Please do not enter any school building unless it is essential.
  • Playground equipment will be limited so please refrain from using it.
  • Wash your child’s clothes daily.

 

If I decide not to send my child to school when they are eligible, will I be penalised?

Attendance is not statutory and therefore you can choose whether or not to send your child back to school. We respect your decision. The Department for Education has made it clear that parents will not receive any unauthorised absences if your child does not attend school.

 

Should my child return to school if they are being ‘shielded’ or are ‘clinically extremely vulnerable’?

No. Please click on the link at the bottom of the page for the most up to date guidance.

 

Should my child attend if they are living with a ‘shielded’ or ‘extremely clinically vulnerable’ person?

You should proceed with caution. Government guidance states ‘If stringent social distance               measures cannot be adhered to, we do not expect those individuals to attend’. We cannot guarantee social distance due to the age of the children who attend our setting but we do have increased hygiene and cleanliness practices and procedures.

 

Should my child attend if they are living with a ‘clinically vulnerable’ person?

Your child is allowed to return if you are happy for them to return.

 

What do I do if someone in my house is experiencing symptoms, however slight?

The main symptoms include:

  • High temperature
  • New, continuous cough
  • Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

If you, your child or anyone in your house (this includes those that are now in you are in a ‘support bubble’) please self-isolate immediately and visit https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/ to arrange a test.

Please inform the school urgently. 

Anyone with symptoms must self-isolate for 7 days from when their symptoms started unless their test comes back negative. Anyone who does not have symptoms must self-isolate for 14 days from when the first person in your home started having symptoms unless the test comes back negative.
