Covid-19 documents and procedures

If a member of your family has been in contact with anyone with a confirmed case of Covid-19 you MUST let the school know.
 
Sandwell guidance states that to reduce the spread of Covid-19 amongst family, friends and communities everyone who tests positive for Covid-19 or comes in to contact with someone who has had Covid-19 MUST self isolate.
 
It is important that we follow this guidance to help keep our children, parents and staff safe.

  • All parents MUST read the home school agreement about their children returning to school.
  • For PE, children can wear joggers or tracksuit bottoms and these can be worn to school on PE days. Trainers and PE tops must also be worn to school on PE days.
  • Coats will be hung on pegs in the cloakrooms.
  • Reading books will be changed weekly. Teachers will let children and parents know their day to bring in reading books.
  • Lunch boxes can be brought to school and these will be kept on the child's peg in the cloakroom.
  • Children MUST bring water bottles to school and they should be taken home to be washed every day. Water bottles will be kept in the classroom with the child.
  • It is the responsibility of all parents to socially distance on the playground, staying 2m apart from each other. Parents MUST NOT congregate in the playground or outside the school gates.
  • ONLY 1 parent must drop off and collect their child.
  • Snacks can still be bought from the school kitchen on a daily basis.
  • Break and lunchtimes will be staggered and seating areas will be cleaned after each sitting. 
  • Toilets will be thoroughly cleaned 3 times a day.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available for children to use throughout the school day.
  • Due to the FETC reopening, we cannot open the main car park gates for parents to leave the playground. Years 1 and 2 will enter through the normal entrance and leave via the early years exit to keep a one way system in place. Staff will be on the playground to direct you.
  • PARENTS MUST BRING THEIR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL ON TIME.
