How will school limit the risk of infection for my child?

We will be following government guidelines:

  • There will be smaller class sizes – with a maximum of 15 children per class.
  • Classrooms will be rearranged – ensuring desks are spaced out as far as possible and removing unnecessary furniture.
  • Soft furnishings, soft toys and toys that are hard to clean will be removed.
  • Children will stay in their groups and be assigned specific staff members to limit mixing.
  • There will be staggered timetables – we will limit the number of children on lunch and breaks / allocate different areas to
  • specific groups and make changes to pick up and drop off times.
  • Contact will be minimised with individuals who are unwell by ensuring that those who have coronavirus symptoms, or who
  • have someone in their household with symptoms, do not attend school.
  • Hands will be washed frequently throughout the day – this will be supervised for younger pupils.
  • Children will be taught good respiratory hygiene – we will promote the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.
  • Posters will be displayed around school to remind the children of good hygiene practices.
  • We will clean frequently touched surfaces often, using standard products, such as disinfectant.
