Please see the link below for updated guidance on the full opening of the school.
Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to let you know that after talking last night to Mark Davies, the CEO of Trust in Learning (Academies), we will be closing the Nursery to all children apart from those whose parents/carers are critical workers or your child is classed as vulnerable from Monday 11th January 2021, this is due to the limited number of staff available. Please note that you will need to send your child in with a packed lunch as we have also had to close our school kitchen.
If you or your child fit this category then please complete this form as soon as possible so we will have an idea of numbers and can plan accordingly.
All other children learning from home will have activities set for them by the Nursery staff on the Interactive Learning Diaries. There will also be regular feedback and communication with you from the Nursery Team on how your child is getting on.
Whilst I would have liked to extend this to others, I am not able to do so at present. Thank you for your continued support. Please be assured that the well-being and education of our pupils remains top priority as we all adapt to this further period of lockdown.
Ms L Hopcroft
As we move from lockdown to Tier 3 in Bristol next week, please can we take this opportunity to remind you that you should not send your child/ren to school if you or anyone in your household or who you have been in close contact with anyone displaying the following symptoms:
Please book a test and self isolate until the result is received. You should not leave your home for anything other than to get tested.
LOCKDOWN NOVEMBER 2020
Following the announcement from the Prime Minister that we shall enter a second lockdown on 5th November, we are asking that all Parents/Carers and Visitors to our site help to reduce the possible spread of the virus by:
Wear a mask when on school site picking up and dropping of your child/ren
Ensuring that you are 2 metres away from any other adults at pick up and drop off time
1 adult if possible to bring/collect your child/ren from school
Limited access to the main school building, if you need to come to the reception area please remember that we can only admit one person at a time, and would ask that you leave a 2 metre space between yourself and the door to allow the other person to leave the building safetly
Report child absences on the main school number using option 1 and leaving details of the reason for this absence

As we return to school we thought it would be helpful for parents and carers to see our process for managing suspected and confirmed cases of COVID-19. As we have previously explained, we will work closely with Public Health England to ensure that we operate in the safest way possible should there be any suspected or confirmed cases, and our process is detailed further in the flowchart above
Covid 19 Tests - Updated from PHE SW
The local NHS 111 service is currently experiencing high numbers of calls from people seeking Covid-19 tests. The 111 service is not able to arrange tests and callers have to be redirected to the correct 119 number, or online service, which is frustrating for individuals and affects 111 capacity.
We have been asked to remind all parents/carers who are seeking tests to use the correct number of 119
If you require a Covid 19 test please call 119 or visit the government website
Please keep trying as appointments are released throughout the day.
NHS 111 are not able to arrange or advise how to obtain a Covid 19 test. If you require clinical advice about your symptoms please go to NHS 111 online or call 111.
