Coronavirus Guidance

As a school, we wanted to share with you what our current environment looks like. In order to adhere to social distancing guidance, we have removed any excess furniture and only included furniture within the classroom, that is required to accommodate the number of children we currently have in school on a daily basis. We also have 'zoned' the playground so that each 'bubble' class are able to play in a designated area. All of these measures have been put in place to support the guidance and to try to reduce the risk of spreading any symptoms related to Coronavirus. The aim of sharing these images with you is to hopefully reassure you that we are trying our very best to adhere to social distancing guidance which will hopefully provide you, as parents / carers. some reassurance if you decide to send your child to school.

Covid-19 Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy

Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

Stay at home

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home

Do not meet others, even friends or family.

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

 

 

 

DO

DON’T

 

 

 

Set a simple routine but take your time with the changes.

Expect your child to accept/adapt these changes immediately

Try to teach your child – there are lots of life skills that can now be imbedded in our children.

Try to be a subject teacher! There are plenty of life lessons that parents can teach.

Spend time together as a family

Push for more than usual, you can take your time to give the children the chance to adapt!

Expect tantrums!

Let those tantrums get you down! Take a breath. These are scary times for everyone, even adults are struggling but we have the maturity to deal with them.

Spend time apart! It is important you find, even a small space, for your own thoughts.

Worry if others need to do the same. Personal space is important.

Create a set of ground rules. How you can/can’t speak to each other. The need for MUTUAL respect (in appropriate age speak!)

Expect these rules to be followed 100% straight away. It takes us all time to get used to new things.

See the positives – what a fantastic opportunity to instil real family values into our children in a way we didn’t have the opportunity to do before.

Focus on what we can’t do. There are ways we can help others in new and unusual ways!

Remember every child will probably respond differently to this situation

Expect every child in the same age bracket to respond the same.

Focus on you and your family, your timetables, your way of working needs to suit the people in your house.

Compare how your family are responding to anyone else’s. We are all different and have different needs.
