Coronavirus Updates & Important Information
Parents COVID Health and Safety Handbook
CORONAVIRUS HELPLINE 0800 046 8687
We are continuing to closely follow advice from Public Health England in respect of Coronavirus.
Currently the school is closed to all pupils, other than those identified as Vulnerable or of those of Key Workers.
Thank you for your support and patience during this period which is new territory for us.
Please take note of the following points:
- The government advice is that if your child displays any of the symptoms (high temperature and/or new continuous cough), or a loss of taste or smell, they must remain at home for 10 days from the start of these symptoms. Please let us know through the normal absence procedures by emailing or calling the school office.
- We will review our staffing every day and be flexible with our arrangements to try and remain open. However, if we do not have adequate staffing levels to ensure the safety of students, it may be necessary to close. We would follow the same procedure as we would for a snow day. Parents would be emailed via Teachers2Parents before 7.30am and a notice will be posted on our school website. https://www.stmaryssw.org.uk/coronavirus-updates/
- If your child is showing symptoms whilst in school, a member of the school leadership team will speak to them and be in contact with you to make suitable arrangements.
We will continue to update you from the Department for Education to ensure St Mary’s remains a calm and safe learning environment, with student’s well-being at the centre of our decisions.
