COVID-19 Information

 

 

Dear Parents and Carers

School Closure from Monday 23rd March and provision for children of critical workers.

On Friday 20th March at 3.15, we closed our doors to most of our amazing children and we will miss them. I would like to thank everyone in the Blaise community for their continued support and understanding during these difficult, challenging and unprecedented times.

Government guidance is clear that if children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading; that is why parents/carers have been asked to keep their children at home, wherever possible. Please click here to access home learning opportunities and thank you for your patience as we fine-tune this way of working.

REDUCED PROVISION 

The government advise that every child who can be safely cared for at home should be. 

In response to government guidance we will be operating a reduced provision from Monday for workers in critical sectors and vulnerable learners. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society. 

Thank you to parents/carers in these sectors who have been able to ensure their child is kept at home. 

All those for whom places have been will have received an email outlining the school day and what documentation is required to evidence key worker status.

If you are a critical worker, please contact the school. We request that you share simple evidence, for example confirmation from your employer on what your job is and how it is critical to the COVID-19 response. 

Please call the school office on 0117 377 2424,or email school@blaiseprimaryandnursery.co.uk for more information.

If a child appears to show symptoms in school, the following will take place:
- If a child appears unwell, a first-aid trained member of staff will take their temperature (twice) using a digital thermometer.
- If the temperature is raised, the parents / carers will be contacted.  They will be told what the temperature is and will be invited in to school to collect their child.
- If a child appears to have a persistent cough, we will contact their parents / carers. They will be invited in to school to collect their child.  
- If, when the child is at home, their temperature is no longer raised, parents / carers will be asked to follow NHS guidelines.  If parents / carers are confident that their child is not showing symptoms, it will be their decision if their child to returns to school.
