School Closure Provision: Key Workers & Vulnerable Children

1st June School Reopening: A Letter from The Head Teacher

Update on Proposed Reopening from 1st June: Letter from the Head Teacher

Survey: Proposed School Opening on 1st June 2020

It is very likely that you have by now heard the Prime Minister’s message about schools reopening on June 1st for children in Year 6, Year 1 and Reception. This is of course conditional on the number of new cases of Covid-19 declining and for it to be safe for children to return to school. So this is a big “IF” and it is still possible that children will not return on this date – like you we have to ‘wait and see.

 

If you haven't done so already, please complete this short survey to indicate your initial thoughts on this proposal.

If you have trouble accessing the survey please e-mail pupilinfo@guardianangels.towerhamlets.sch.uk to indicate whether you would or would not plan to send your child to school should schools reopen from the 1st June, along with any questions or comments you may have relating to schools reopening.

Uniform

We are asking all students to wear full school uniform as normal.

Please also supply your child’s PE kit in a bag which can stay at St Anne’s whilst this arrangement is in place. Please make sure that all uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name and year group.

 

Breakfast Club & After School Club

We are intending to run a breakfast club (opens at 8am) and an after school club (closes at 5:45pm) each day for as long as we have the adequate staffing. If we can no longer offer this then we will let you know. Please not that snacks will not be provided at after school club, children should bring their own healthy snack to eat.

 

Lunch

Lunch will be provided as normal. If you normally bring a packed lunch you are welcome to continue to do so.

 

 

Medicines

If your child needs to take any medicines, please give these to the office at St Anne’s School. Please note that we can only accept medicines that have been prescribed by a doctor.

 

If your child requires an asthma pump please ensure that they have a working asthma pump (and spacer if required) in their bag. If your child requires an epi-pen please make sure they have this in their bag. This must be labelled with their name.

 

We will have emergency asthma pumps and epi-pens on site at St Anne’s school. Unless we are told otherwise, we shall assume that permission is given to administer these in the very unlikely event that they are required.

 

Attendance

We will keep a daily record of who is attending the provision. If you know your child will be un able to attend due to sickness or other reasons, please contact the St Anne’s school office to let us know as you normally would do.

 

The current guidance for those who show symptoms is:

 

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

 

How long to stay at home

  • If you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
  • If you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms
  • If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
  • If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

 

All families must follow this advice regardless of your status as a Key Worker or Vulnerable Child. If we suspect your child may be showing symptoms you will be asked to collect them from St Anne’s, along with any siblings, immediately and to self-isolate.

 

We shall be operating this provision using a rota of staff. We understand that not everybody will need to access the provision every day, however it would be helpful if you could inform us on the Thursday of each week as to your intentions to attend for the following week. This way we can ensure that we only timetable the staff that are really needed for the week.

 

If you have any further questions, please contact Miss Nottage or Mrs Mouna via the St Anne’s office on Monday.

 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

 

Miss L. Nottage

Head of School
