COVID-19 Contingency Measures

Dear Parents,


Over recent days we have been made aware of several children in our school community who have tested positive for COVID 19.


I would like to take time to reassure you that we have taken all necessary actions since hearing this information to keep all children at our school as safe as possible. The school have consulted with the local authority and we are introducing some additional controls to reduce the chances of further spread of the virus. 

As a parent you should not notice any changes.

  • We will continue to remind children to wash and sanitise hands at regular intervals.
  • We will continue to ensure that all classrooms are well ventilated and cleaned throughout the day. 
  • We will encourage parents to wear masks at pick up and drop off.
  • Drop off and collection arrangements for children will remain unaltered.
  • There will not be a return to whole class self isolation.
  • Children will not sing in class and only sing outside where there is less chance of transmission. 
  • We will suspend all after school sports clubs for the two week period.


Following this period of time, we will review these additional measures.


Currently, the most common strain of virus in the UK is called the Delta variant and we have seen a steep rise in COVID-19 cases recently. Evidence suggests the Delta variant spreads more easily than previous strains.  It is important that we are vigilant and follow public health messages to stop the spread of the virus


Household testing


Eligible household members should do a rapid test twice a week (every 3 to 4 days) to check if you have the virus. If people test positive and self-isolate, it helps stop the virus spreading.  Even if you’re vaccinated, there’s still a chance you can pass COVID-19 on, so you should keep getting tested regularly.  To access home test kits, please see the following link below:


How to stop COVID-19 spreading

  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
