BACK TO SCHOOL

 

We are aware that for some children and parents returning to school in September may be daunting. To help the children prepare for this, the following PDF documents have been produced. Please use them with your child if you think it would be useful to reduce any anxiety or worry they have about school after this period of home learning. There are four documents attached;

 

 

 

THIS GUIDANCE IS FROM SALFORD LOCAL AUTHORITY

Guidance for when a child, young person or staff member develops symptoms compatible with coronavirus in an education/childcare setting

 

Correct as of June 2020

 

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings/coronavirus-covid-19-implementing-protective-measures-in-education-and-childcare-settings

When a child, young person or staff member develops symptoms compatible with coronavirus

 

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of any of the following:

A new continuous cough

A high temperature

A loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

 

A well child/young person: feels 100% well, seems themselves and not displaying any changes in behaviour or their daily routines.

 

An unwell child could be a possible case of COVID-19. Other symptoms we have seen:

Vomiting, diarrhoea, sleeping more than usual, complaining of not feeling themselves, agitated, cold, headache - anything that is not feeling themselves.  For fevers, the NHS advice is to look for a high temperature – ‘this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back, you do not need to measure your temperature’

 

  1. Parents should not send their child to school/setting if they are unwell in any way. If anyone in the household is unwell, awaiting testing or testing result then the child should not attend the setting or school.
  2. If someone becomes unwell in school, they should be sent home and advised to isolate the result of the COVID test. The school or setting should undertake any necessary cleaning after someone has been unwell on the premises. All staff are aware of the need for PPE for cleaning or dealing with an unwell person.
  3. All staff and students who are attending an education or childcare setting will have access to a test if they display symptoms of coronavirus. Household members of staff can also be tested. The school can refer the child or staff member for testing at AJ Bell stadium through this link. https://contactus.salford.gov.uk/?formtype=SWAB_CALL .

The school should liaise with the parent on testing. The online referral form will require the name, telephone and postcode of child or staff member. A call back will be made to parent or staff member to arrange a suitable time for the test. 

Please contact the Salford infection control team on 0161 793 3599 or PH Secretary <PHSecretary@salford.gov.uk> to notify and discuss public health about suspected case(s), information on referral for testing, and to liaise regarding the results.

  1. All parents of children and staff who have been tested should provide the outcome of the test result (positive or negative) to the school or setting to help protect the wider school community. If this does not occur, the NHS Test and Trace service is informed of all positive results and in due course inform the school and Salford Infection Control team.
  2. If a member of the wider school community tests positive e.g. a parent/governor/member of cleaning staff after becoming unwell over the weekend, they should let the school know to identify if the confirmed case attended the setting in the 48 hours before the onset of symptoms/date of the test. No further action is required If the person did not attend the setting in the 48 hours before the onset of symptoms/date of the test.
  3. Where the child, young person or staff member tests positive:

 

- The person should isolate for 7 days minimum. The person needs to be 48 hours symptom-free prior to return.

- Their fellow household members should self-isolate for 14 days.

- The rest of their bubble/class/group within their setting (children and adults) will be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days (and offered testing if symptoms develop)

- The other household members of the bubble/class/group (contacts of contacts) do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms

-If the child/staff did not adhere to social distancing outside the bubble within the school setting including school transport Salford infection Control will work with the school to understand the extent of contact and implications for other bubbles

- The setting will send Salford City Council’s ‘Warn and Inform’ letters to all parents just to let them know there is a case in the school and to remind them to watch out for symptoms. 

 

  1. On receiving a positive result, the household should log on to the NHS Test and Trace portal to identify all their close contacts using their unique identifier (See definition of contacts below) https://contact-tracing.phe.gov.uk/.

You can get in touch with the Salford infection control team on 0161 793 3599 or PH Secretary <PHSecretary@salford.gov.uk> for assistance if you need help with identifying all your contacts or there is difficulties accessing the site.

All close contacts (household or school related or any other close contacts) will receive a letter or text to advise them to self-isolate.

 

  1. Contacts of a person who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) MUST self-isolate at home because they are at risk of developing symptoms themselves in the next 14 days and could spread the virus to others before the symptoms begin.

If you have concerns for your health, please contact your GP or NHS 111 online.

In an emergency, contact 999.

  1. In some cases a larger number of other children, young people may be asked to self-isolate at home as a precautionary measure – perhaps more than one bubble or the whole school. Where settings have been able to effectively implement guidance on infection prevention and control, which will reduce risk of transmission, closure of the whole setting will not generally be necessary.
  2. Where the child, young person or staff member tests negative, they can return to the school or setting when they are 48 hours symptom free. Their household members can end their isolation straight away following the negative test (unless someone else in the household is waiting for the result of their test).

 

  1. In exceptional circumstance, it may not be possible to test the index case (the first person to develop symptoms). If so, the Salford infection control team can offer advice and the extra precautions to take for the school and the bubble.

 

 

What do we mean by a ‘contact’?

A ‘contact’ is a person who has been close to someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) anytime from 2 days before the person was symptomatic up to 7 days from onset of symptoms (this is when they are infectious to others). For example, a contact can be:

  • People who spend significant time in the same household as a person who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Close personal relationships/partners
  • A person who has had face-to-face contact (within one metre), with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), including: being coughed on, having a face-to-face conversation, within one metre, or having skin-to-skin physical contact, or any contact within one metre for one minute or longer
  • A person who has been within 2 metres of someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) for more than 15 minutes
  • A person who has travelled in a small vehicle with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or in a large vehicle or plane near someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

  • In a schools/setting context, all children/staff in the ‘bubble’ will be classed as a close contact.

 

If you have any queries regarding the practical implementation of this guidance in your school or setting, please contact Neil.Fazackerley@salford.gov.uk or Roberta.Greenwood@salford.gov.uk

 

 

 

 

 

THIS LETTER IS FROM THE LOCAL AUTHORITY

8th June 2020

Dear Parents and Carers,                                  

St. Mary’s RCP school is committed to keeping both children and staff members safe when they return to school. We would like to inform you about what schools will be doing and what we ask of you as parents or carers if your child shows symptoms of coronavirus (COVID19).

The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID19) are a recent start of any of the following

  • A new continuous cough
  • A high temperature (feel hot to touch on the chest or back)
  • A loss or change in your normal sense of taste or smell

A well child/young person feels 100% well, seems themselves and not displaying any changes in behaviour or their daily routines.  

An unwell child could be a possible case of COVID19. Other symptoms that have been linked to covid is vomiting, diarrhoea, sleeping more than usual, agitated, cold, headaches - anything that may indicate they are not feeling themselves.

Please don’t send your child into school if:

  • They are unwell in any way
  • Anyone in the household is unwell, awaiting testing or their result or has been tested positive.

What happens if a child/young person or member of staff becomes unwell at school?

As soon as the school is made aware, the child, young person or staff member will be sent home and advised to isolate until the result of the COVID test is known. The school will arrange any necessary cleaning.

 

How do I get a test for my child?

If your child is displaying symptoms of coronavirus, your school will give you details of how to book a test at the local testing site, AJ Bell Stadium. When you have the result, please tell the school whether it is positive or negative.

 

What happens if a child, young person or staff member tests positive:

  • The person should isolate for seven days minimum. The person needs to be 48 hours symptom-free prior to return school settings.
  • Members of their household should self-isolate for 14 days. The 14 days is the time it takes for symptoms to show if you have been infected.
  • The rest of their bubble/class/group within their school (children and adults) will be sent home and advised to self-isolate for 14 days (and offered testing if symptoms develop).
  • The other household members who live with the person in the bubble/class/group do not need to self-isolate unless the child, young person or staff member they live with in that group subsequently develops symptoms
  • The school will send a Salford City Council’s ‘Warn and Inform’ letter to all parents just to let you know there is a case in the school and to remind them to watch out for symptoms.

 

If my child tests positive, do I need to tell people they have been in contact with?

Yes. You need to log onto the NHS Test and Trace portal https://contact-tracing.phe.gov.uk/and share details of all their close contacts. Salford Infection Control team can help you identify contacts, call 0161 793 3599 or email  PHSecretary@salford.gov.uk

 

All close contacts (household, school related or any other close contacts) will receive a letter or text to advise them to self-isolate.

What happens if my child tests negative?

Your child can return to school when they are 48 hours symptom free. Household members can end their isolation straight away following the negative test, unless someone else in the household is waiting for the result of their test.

 

What do I need to do if either myself or my child has been in ‘contact’ with somebody who has tested positive

A ‘contact’ is a person who has been close to someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) anytime from 2 days before the person was symptomatic up to 7 days from onset of symptoms (this is when they are infectious to others).

For example, a contact can be:

  • People who spend significant time in the same household as a person who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Close personal relationships/partners
  • A person who has had face-to-face contact with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), including: being coughed on, having a face-to-face conversation within one metre, or having skin-to-skin physical contact, or any contact within one metre for one minute or longer
  • A person who has been within 2 metres of someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) for more than 15 minutes
  • A person who has travelled in a small vehicle with someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or in a large vehicle or plane near someone who has tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19)

 

In a schools/setting context, all children/staff in the ‘bubble’ will be classed as a close contact. If you or your child falls into one of the categorises above of a contact they must self-isolate at home because you are at risk of developing symptoms in the next 14 days and could spread the virus to others before the symptoms begin. If you have concerns for your health, contact your GP or NHS 111 online. In an emergency, contact 999.

 

What happens if somebody in wider school community tests positive?

If a member of our wider school community (e.g. a parent/carer, a member of our cleaning staff, a governor) tests positive. They need to let the school know immediately so they can identify if the positive person has had contact with anyone who attended the school in the previous 48 hours before the onset of symptoms or date of the test.  Contact tracing will take place to understand the types of contact the individual has had both in school and out of school. 

We would like reiterate ways to reduce the spread of coronavirus disease and the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19:

  • Maintain physical distancing and to stay at least 2 metres from other.
  • Stay out of crowded places and avoid mass gathering
  • Wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
  • keep your hands away from your face (eyes, nose and mouth)

 

Please keep this letter for future reference. We would like to reassure you that we are doing all we can to keep your children safe and we thank you in advance for following this advice and guidance.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs J.A. Forshaw

Head teacher

 

27th May 2020

 

 

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

 

As ever, we hope this finds you and your families well.

 

Please find attached our plan for the proposed partial re-opening of primary schools from 1st June 2020. It follows the approval of the school risk assessment by the Governing Board on 26th May 2020.

 

We are grateful for your patience and continued support over the past week. We are sure that you will understand that this has been a significant undertaking to ensure, as best we can, the safety of all members of our school community.

 

The plan follows all considerations of current guidance from the government and the local authority and will apply only once the government confirms that all five of its stages for re-opening are met.  

 

Initially, the risk assessment required us to carry out a re-measuring of all possible teaching areas with required social distancing measures applied. As a result, our maximum capacity has been significantly reduced and it is, therefore, not possible for all year groups identified by the government to return at the same time. The plan therefore prioritises pupils from oldest to youngest.

 

As we move forward, please understand that parents/carers will not be compelled to send their children back if they feel uncomfortable with the level of risk. The government have clearly stated that there will be no penalty if this is what you choose to do. In addition, learning packs and phone calls from teachers to families will continue in line with our current practice. 

 

Be assured that we will review the plan in line with any future changes in advice.

 

Thank you for your continued support and best wishes to you all.

 

 

Yours sincerely,

 

Mrs. J.A. Forshaw

Head teacher

 

Provision

  • School will be open 2nd June for existing and additional key worker and vulnerable pupils ( Monday – Friday)
  • Year 6 pupils will attend from the 8th June (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday)
  • Year 1 pupils will attend from 15th June (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday)
  • Nursery and Reception attendance date will be confirmed after 15th June based on capacity and staff availability.
  • Each Wednesday, school will be closed except for pupils of key workers so a deep clean can take place

 

Attendance during reopening

The government has requested for an increased number of children to attend school from the 1st June, however it will be entirely at the discretion of parents to accept a place and no sanctions will be taken if pupils do not attend due to safety concerns for themselves or members of their family.

 

Groupings (Explanation)

Pupils will be in groups of no more than 15 depending on classroom size. They will remain in these groups at all times. Think of these as ‘bubbles’ to stop any potential transmission of the virus. Two adults will be assigned to each bubble so therefore some bubbles will not have their regular teacher. We will aim, wherever possible, for pupils to be cared for by one familiar adult. The pupils will only mix with the adults and children in their bubble throughout the day and will not play with pupils from other bubbles as play-time and lunch time will be staggered and zoned.

 

Lunch and Breaks

Lunch will be eaten in classrooms which will be cleaned by staff afterwards. It is preferable for pupils to bring a packed lunch in throw away bags where possible. If your child will require a school meal please order in the usual way.  Dolce, our catering provider, will organise for food to be prepared in take away grab bags in the school kitchen. These will be brought to the children by a member of staff. Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle with them each day. In the case of wet play, children will stay in their classroom. Pupils will be supervised at all times to ensure sure these requirements are followed.

 

Hygiene

All staff will be engaged in regular cleaning of surfaces and equipment. Pupils will wash and dry their hands and use alcohol hand sanitizer on a regular basis. PH neutral soap has been installed in all dispensers. Paper towels, not hand dryers, will be used to dry hands. Class bubbles will be supplied with tissues, and pupils instructed to ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’. Support staff will respond when children may become unwell or are hurt. PPE has been provided to be used only when applying first aid or sensitively supporting a child who is sick. Any personal staff-pupil contact without PPE is not recommended. Each bubble has a lidded bin so that all paper towels and tissues are able to be safely disposed of before being double bagged at the point of disposal. Bins will be emptied twice a day.

In all cases, children will enter their bubble via an external door. Coats & packed lunches/snack will remain in their allocated seating area. Pupils must not bring any school bags, book bags, pencil cases, reading books or other personal items into school except a water bottle. Additional clothing and PE kits will not be required.

 

 

 

 

 

Year 6

  • Two groups/bubbles of no more than 15 (H&W)
  • Mr Hewson and Mrs Hancock with bubble ‘H’  in Year 6 classroom
  • Mr Webster and Mrs Roche  with bubble ‘W’ in Year 5 classroom
  • One pupil per desk
  • Social distancing applied
  • External doors and windows will be open for ventilation

 

The focus will be on core subjects, transition work and a celebration of primary education. This will mirror the home learning packs. Toilets will be allocated in the cloakroom area. Whilst there will be designated times for toileting, the children will have full access to the toilet throughout the day limited to one pupil at a time. This will be co-ordinated by staff and should they need to wait to use the toilet, as another child is using it, there will be a designated waiting area for them marked out. Children will take one morning and lunchtime break.

 

Year 1

  • Two groups/bubbles of no more than 15 (CO and CA)
  • Mr Cavanagh and Mrs Hubble with bubble ‘CA’  in Year 2 classroom
  • Mrs Cox and Mrs Devine  with bubble ‘CO’ in Year 1 classroom
  • One pupil per desk
  • Social distancing applied
  • External doors and windows will be open for ventilation

 

Nursery and Reception

Organisational details similar to the above with further details to follow.

 

Key Workers

Key worker’s children will be grouped in no more than 15 in the Year 3 classroom, Year 4 classroom or hall with pupils of a similar age. It will not be possible to keep them with their current teacher.  If you are a key worker you can access provision on all five days a week. However, we ask for current practice to continue so that your child only attends as your work schedule dictates.

 

Curriculum

Teachers will be prioritising the learning as covered in our home learning plans. All equipment will be cleaned on a regular basis. Teachers will ensure tasks enable socialisation between pupils through conversation, games and activities whilst still observing safe practices. Wellbeing is an important aspect of return to school and we endeavour to support the pupils during this time.

We will promote self-marking of work, pending further safety advice. Stationery packs will be provided to all children and used exclusively by them. They should not bring pencil cases into school. Staff must wash their hands before and after handling children’s workbooks. Disposable gloves are also available to all staff members.

 

Drop off 

Each year group will have a separate start time.  Children will be directed at the main gate to a designated point. Parents/carers must maintain social distancing when dropping off – floor markings will ensure this takes place. It is important that pupils do not arrive at school before there allocated drop off time.  External classroom doors will remain open during drop off so

 

 

 

that touch points are minimised. (All internal doors for spaces in use, excepting toilets, will remain open during the day for the same reason).

  • Key workers will arrive between 8.45a.m. – 8.55 a.m.
  • Year 6 will arrive between 9.00a.m. - 9.10 a.m. 
  • Year 1 will arrive 9.15a.m. – 9.25a.m.
  • Nursery and Reception to follow

If you have more than one child in these year groups please arrive at the earliest time stated.

 

Pick up

Each year group will have a separate time. Parents will wait on the Key Stage 2 playground on socially distanced markings. Parents/carers will be responsible for maintaining social distancing at all times. We ask that only one parent/carer enter the site, as this will help support social distancing. The exception to this is if you have a child with you of primary school age or younger. Parents must not gather at the school gates, either on entry or exit.

  • Nursery, Reception pick up time to be confirmed
  • Year 1 pick-up time: 3.00.p.m
  • Year 6 pick- up time: 3.10.p.m
  • Key Workers: 3.25.p.m

If you have more than one child in these year groups please arrive at the earliest time stated.

 

Sickness

If a child or staff member has symptoms of Coronavirus they must not come to school. Anyone who develops symptoms must isolate, be tested and not return to school until it is safe to do so (i.e. a negative test or symptom free after two weeks of isolation). If your child becomes unwell please follow the Coronavirus infection guidance.  https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance

 

PPE (Personal Protective Equipment)

The government guidance is clear that PPE should only be worn in specific circumstances in school. It will not be worn by children. School staff will only be required to wear PPE if having to work closely with a child, for example, administering first aid or intimate care. PPE will also be worn by any staff member supervising a child who has symptoms of Coronavirus whilst the pupil waits to be picked up by a parent/carer.

PLEASE ENSURE YOUR CONTACT DETAILS ARE UP TO DATE.

It is important to note that should a child have an accident, for example on the playground, they will have first aid administered to them as usual (with a staff member wearing appropriate PPE).

 

School Uniform

We ask all pupils, from 2nd June, to wear school uniform. Where possible, after a day in school, children should put the clothes they have been wearing straight into the wash and have a shower. Please ensure your child wears appropriate footwear to undertake physical exercise. During this period, children are encouraged to wear trainers. They must only wear lace up shoes if they are able to tie them independently. Where possible, learning will take place outdoors, therefore please ensure children have a coat and are dressed for outdoor conditions.

 

Cleaning:

All classrooms will have been thoroughly cleaned and disinfected prior to children returning to school. Our school cleaners will work their current contracted hours at the end of the school day. They will report to the site team/school office to check if any areas require specific deep cleaning. Toilets, sinks and main touch points will be cleaned throughout the

 

 

day. Staff in each bubble will be required, as is usual practice, to maintain a clean environment, including resources used. Disposable gloves will be provided for this purpose. Anyone using classroom computers or other devices will be required to ensure that touch points are cleaned after every use. Further deep cleans will take place each Wednesday to ensure the site is as safe as possible.

 

Visitors to School

Only essential visitors to school will be allowed on site. An example of an essential visitor would be a contractor completing statutory tests which would potentially affect the health of the school community if they were not carried out. Parents will only be able to come onto the site to drop off and pick up children (as detailed above). Any concerns will be discussed with a staff member via telephone or email as this will help to ensure the safety of both staff and parents.

 

Bereavements

Many families across the world have lost loved ones and friends. This is also the case in our school community and our thoughts and prayers are with those families. Please let us know via email to the school office if you require any support for your family or child.

 

Review

The Governing Board, in consultation with the Headteacher, will keep the plan under constant review considering changes in government and local authority guidance, informed views of our community and joint decisions proposed by the local cluster of schools.

Any changes will be sent to parents via email.

 A-teams is the community arm of Audacious Church, Manchester. There are several free services that you can access.
The baby hamper project is about offering a service to expectant mums or mums with new babies (roughly aged up to 3 months old) who are in need of some help during this very important time.
We can assist by delivering a hamper of new goods which are the baby basics i.e. nappies, wipes etc and/or a package of second hand baby clothes which are in good condition.
Food parcels are also available for any person you feel is really in need of one.
For further details or to send in a referral, please fill out the form below and email:
