Covid Update and Reminders

Jan
25

Thank you for your continuing support for home learning and procedures in school. The following messages effect families of critical workers or vulnerable children attending school. 

Reminders: 

  • Please do NOT send your child into school if anyone in your household has tested positive or is symptomatic
  • If your child is booked to attend school on any day, please let us know if they then do not attend school using attendance@wormleyprimary.co.uk

Testing for staff in school

The Department for Education has recently announced that it will start a programme of asymptomatic Covid-19 testing for all staff in primary schools. The aim is to identify  those who have Covid-19 virus without any symptoms so could be transmitting the virus unknowingly. The aim of this testing is to identify cases which would have previously gone undetected and, so, reduce the spread in schools.

Later this week, our staff will start self-testing twice a week using a lateral flow test. If anyone tests positive, we will ask close contacts to isolate at home, which could mean a bubble closing, until the result can be confirmed by a PCR test this may lead to some disruption. We will use emails to advise you of any such changes so please be alert to these communications. 

January Opening Plans

Dec
31

 

Dear parents and carers,

On 30 December 2020 the government announced that in order to help contain the community transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19), some restrictions to primary education settings are required in certain areas.

Wormley Church of England Primary School is in one of these areas due to high transmissions.

As a result, only vulnerable children and children of critical workers will be returning to school on Tuesday 5th January 2021. Families of vulnerable children will be contacted by staff to offer the children a place in school. If parents are critical workers, they will be able to request a place in school for their child/children via a Google form emailed to parents. In order to drive down infection rates and reduce risk, children should learn from home if it is possible.

Children learning from home will start for all other pupils from Tuesday 5th on Google Classroom or Tapestry (YN-Y1).

Please continue to check emails, school App and website for further information. If you believe you are not receiving emails please contact school.

Thank you for your continued support.

Hello Yellow Day

Oct
2

To celebrate World Mental Health Day we will be holding our annual Hello Yellow Day on Friday 9th October.

Our themes this year are resilience, calmness and exercise.  Will will be looking closely at  Agent Resilient, Agent Mindful and Agent Kinetic.

During the day the children will engage activities such as a special assembly, mindfulness, creating a wellbeing shield, cross country and orienteering.

The children need to come in their PE kit and may wear something yellow if they like but this is not essential.
