UPDATED 17th January 2022
Please find below the most recent copy of our Covid Response Plan, updated in response to the change in guidance regarding self-isolation in effect from today.
Overall as a school, we still remain at Stage 1 (Protective Measures), which is where we expect that that most classes will remain, for most of the time and your child should continue to attend as normal if they remain well. All students and staff, regardless of year group, should remain vigilant regarding COVID-19.
If we are alerted to positive cases, or a number of positive cases in your child’s year group we will notify parents of this and move to the next stage of our plan. Dependent on the number of cases of Covid, different classes and year groups may be at different stages of the response plan.
As part of Stage 1 (Protective Measures) we continue to expect all adults and any children over primary age to wear a mask when they are on the school site. If you are volunteering at school (e.g. helping with reading), please take also a LFD test before coming into school.
All parents are also advised to continue with the routine twice weekly asymptomatic LFD COVID-19 testing of those aged 11 and above in the household. If you are unable to collect a box of LFD tests, then please let the staff know as we have a small number of spares available.
What to do if your child receives a positive PCR or LFD result:
From 11 January in England, people who receive positive lateral flow device (LFD) test results for coronavirus (COVID-19) should self-isolate immediately and don’t need to take a confirmatory PCR test. The guidance for how long to self-isolate for has also changed from 17th January.
Please see below a chart to help you determine when your child can stop isolating.
Day 0 is the day that symptoms started or a positive test result was received.
Children can return to school on the morning of Day 6, providing they have a negative LFD and no high temperature.
If your child receives a positive result and is well enough, then work will be provided for them. All other children may come to school. For the first day, this is available on the school website. https://www.stpeters-leatherhead.co.uk/page/?title=Remote+Learning+at+Home&pid=405 and after this will be through Tapestry (for children in EYFS & KS1) or Google Classroom (for children in KS2). If you have any issues accessing home learning, please contact your class teacher.
Support for families:
If you are in receipt of benefits related free school meals and your child needs to isolate because of a positive covid result, please email Mrs Clegg on email@example.com who will be able to issue supermarket vouchers to the value of the school meal for any isolating child.
The information below explains what we would ask parents to do in the most common situations, if you have any questions, or you are unsure of what to do, please do get in touch.
Remote Learning Review - February 2021
We asked parents three questions about remote learning:
- What has gone well?
- What are the challenges?
- What can we do to help and support remote learning?
Thank you to all the parents that completed our Online Remote Learning survey, we had an amazing number of responses spread across each stage of our school. The overwhelming majority of responses were very positive and complimentary about our provision and I thank you on behalf of my staff for the recognition of the amount of work that they have, and are putting in to making our offer so successful. We've made a short video explaining the main points for parents, and you can view that here, you can also find the full review document below for you to read at your leisure.
