School Policies & Procedures
At the end of February 2022, the Government published its Living With Covid doocument.
This document outlines the government’s plan for living with COVID-19. This plan - underpinned by vaccines - will remove the remaining legal domestic restrictions while continuing to protect people most vulnerable to COVID-19 and maintaining resilience.
The school monitors attendance and pupil illness carefully and works closely with the LA if support is needed. The school promotes hygiene, handwashing and ventilation and has good experience of stepping up or down mitigation measures to minimise transmission of cornonavirus or other transmissable community illnesses. A document of these measures is available from the school office on request.
The school is aware that due to lockdown and other factors, pupils have missed a lot of schooling over the past two years whihc has had an impact on thier social, academic, and emotional development. A raft of support is in place to meet the needs of individual children including play-therapy, counselling and 1:1 tuition. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any concerns about your child's achievement and/or progress. As part of the Parent Pledge announced in the DfE's White Paper for Education, parents/carers will be kept informed of the steps the school is taking to address any gaps in your child's learning and progress and this will be shared with you in person as well as in written Termly Reports.
Parents/carers can also read about our Catch-Up plan here.
