Dear Parents and Carers,
As you will be aware the Government have laid out more plans on Monday evening about lifting restrictions on 19th July 2021. They have done this knowing that many schools, colleges and universities will have started their summer breaks by then but we don't finish until 22nd July 2021. Therefore we will continue will all the measures currently in place until we break up. This includes mask wearing, etc.
When the children return in September 2021 we will have removed bubbles, staggered starts and end of the day, mask wearing and many of the other restrictions (unless the guidance changes again).
Bubbles and isolation periods will not end until the 16th August 2021, so we have to continue closing bubbles and children isolating if there is a positive case in their class until we break up. This is why we will continue our precautionary measures until we break up. From 16 August, children under the age of 18 years old will no longer be required to self-isolate if they are contacted by NHS Test & Trace as a close contact of a positive COVID-19 case. Instead, children will be contacted by NHS Test & Trace, informed they have been in close contact with a positive case and advised to take a PCR test.
A useful link we have been sent to a Government page, that is for schools, parents and children, with all this information on is:
Below is a screenshot of the guidance currently on there for primary schools.
Please contact us if you have any queries.
