Back To School
Tilston Parochial Primary School reopened to all pupils on Monday 8th March 2021.
Please read the latest guidance- What parents need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during COVID-19 http://www.gov.uk/government/publications/what-parents-and-carers-need-to-know-about-early-years-providers-schools-and-colleges-during-the-coronavirus-covid-19-outbreak/what-parents-need-to-know-about-early-years-providers-schools-and-colleges-during-covid-19#attending-school-and-college In the planning to re-open, we completed a thorough and robust risk assessment which includes systems of control. They are grouped into Prevention and Response.
1) Minimise contact with people who are unwell, ensuring that those with symptoms do not attend school for the required time.
2) Clean hands thoroughly more often than normal.
3) Ensure good respiratory hygiene using "Catch it..Bin it...Kill it!"
4) Enhanced cleaning, frequently cleaning contact points.
5) Minimising contact between individuals through social distancing and keeping within their class bubble during the school day.
6) Where necessary, wear PPE where someone shows signs and symptoms or where can't maintain social distance
7) Ventilation- provide good ventilation in classes and around the school.
8) School will engage in the Test and Trace system.
9) Manage confirmed cases within the school community.
10) Strictly following the advice of the Local Health Protection Team, should we have an outbreak.
Please take the time to have a look at the information provided by us as a school and the literature produced by the DFE and the Government.
Symptoms of coronavirus
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
- 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)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
What to do if you have symptoms
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:
- Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
- You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since your symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started.
