Chilvers Coton Community School and Nursery

Inspiring Excellence Everyday

COVID-19

As we now move to living with COVID, face to face education in school for as many pupils as possible remains our top priority. Children miss out on too much learning as well as social skills and wider opportunities when schools are closed. Our school is fully open to give pupils our full curriculum offer and access to wider opportunities;

  • Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 are fully open as usual
  • Breakfast club and after school clubs are open as usual
  • Opportunities within school such as Rocksteady and recorder lessons are operating as usual
  • Professional visitors to school such as Speech and Language Therapists continue to be welcomed into school

 

Staff and pupil absences due to COVID-19 are likely to lessen now. However, we do need to be prepared for all eventualities. The government has issued new guidelines for schools and we are using these expectations to find ways to be more flexible so that as many pupils learn in school as much as possible. This may include;

  • 'hybrid' teaching where pupils isolating at home and those in school, have the same 'live' lessons delivered by teachers during the school day
  • combining classes
  • deploying teaching assistants to cover classes (teachers who are assigned to support pupils with EHCP's must continue to work with the pupil and will not be re-deployed)

 

We would welcome parents' support and understanding to help us do this. Help us to get ready for all eventualities by;

  • checking your child's log-in details for Microsoft teams to check you have full access
  • make sure your child has a device they can work from at home and have a space to work in; we have devices we are able to loan to families so in the event that your child needs to self-isolate, please let us know as soon as possible and we can get a device to you
  • talking to your child and explaining that they may need to be taught by a different teacher in a different classroom or at home if needed 

 

Public Health Guidance advises that children who test positive for COVID-19 can return to school after 3 days of isolation.

 

Pupils can and should attend school even if someone in their household has tested positive for COVID-19; if children become unwell (e.g. a high temperature, cough, cold like symptoms) it is best if they stay away from school until they are feeling better.
