Dear parents and carers,
Thank you so much for your positivity with everything we are doing to minimise risk on school premises. I am sure you have seen in the news, the latest government update regarding further restrictions.
We constantly review how we can minimise risk in school and with the number of parents on site and the recent government ruling has meant we need to review our procedures on using face masks.
You will be aware that the government is limiting social gatherings to six people. While this new law does not apply to schools or workplaces, nevertheless it has been introduced urgently as cases of Covid-19 have begun to rise rapidly. Therefore, as a safety measure and to play our part in helping to reduce any transmission of the virus, we are now asking parents and carers to wear face coverings as soon as they come on to the school site. This is with immediate effect until further notice. It will be permissible not to wear face coverings if there are valid reasons not to. There is no requirement for any of our children to wear face coverings at any time.
Remember, where possible, only one parent or carer should be on a school site and for the shortest time necessary. Please do not enter any school buildings without prior arrangement.
Once you have dropped off or collected your child, we respectfully ask you to please immediately leave school premises.
These remain challenging times for everyone and I hope you can understand the reasoning behind the changes we are imposing. All staff continue to do their best for the children and it remains very important we all pull together to remain safe.
As always, please contact me if you have any questions.
