Corona Virus (COVID-19)



COVID 19 Risk Assessment - September 2021

COVID 19 Outbreak Management Plan 


Update 01.09.21

Taken from DfE publication  What parents and carers need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during COVID-19

"From 19 July the government continues to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus. This marks a new phase in the government’s response to the pandemic, moving away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk.

As COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with, there is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education - particularly given that the direct clinical risks to children are extremely low, and every adult has been offered a first vaccine and the opportunity for 2 doses by mid-September."

Update 06.01.21

School will be open today for critical worker and vulnerable children only. Eligible families will have received a confirmation text and email.
If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading. The fewer children in school, the lower the risk to children, families and staff.
Forming an informal childcare bubble may be a safer option for some families. Details can be found in the latest guidance:

The whole world is talking about the corona virus. Schools have closed, and children are asking a lot of questions. This short film uses PLAYMOBIL to help explain in a way that children can understand what is happening right now, what we can all do to ease the situation, and why it so important to avoid contact with other children and adults.
