COVID 19 Information for Parents January 2021

Risk-Assessment-for-Covid-2020-ratified-19.06.2020-updated-27.10.2020

With effect from tomorrow, Wednesday 6th January, children will return to online, blended learning and we will be reopening the emergency school hub at Ysgol Penmorfa. The emergency hub is available for children whose parents are keyworkers and who cannot be safely cared for at home. It is important that schools and other educational establishments remain safe places for children, and we must prioritise the health of our staff. The fewer children who attend school, the lower the risk that this virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals across the authority.   If you are not a key worker please do not attempt to access this provision. This provision is ONLY available if there is no one at home to look after your child/ren.

The school hub will be open for Ysgol Penmorfa registered school aged children from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Friday. The logistics of organising this provision are complex. I will therefore be asking parents of key workers to book their places weekly in advance by emailing me on a Thursday to Sharon.A.Davies@denbighshire.gov.uk.  You will also be required you to fill in an initial form attached. Each week when you book a place please provide your working rota when you email for the provision.

School dinners will be available and will need to be paid for via ParentPay.  Those entitled to free school meals will receive direct payments so will also need to pay via ParentPay or provide a packed lunch. Please indicate on the form if your child will require a school dinner or whether you will provide a packed lunch.

To keep groups as small as we can we will split the children into four groups and details of where to drop off/pick up are as follows:

Nursery and Reception – Nursery entrance (Miss Heathcote’s class)

Years 1 & 2 – Year 2 entrance (Mrs Hambridge/Mrs Wright’s class)

Years 3 & 4 – Year 3/4 entrance

Years 5 & 6 – Year 5/6 entrance

For a child coming into school to access this provision we ask that:

  • Own clothes to be worn which are fresh on – we recommend putting clothes straight into the washing machine once returning home from school in order to minimize and control the spread of infection
  • On the first day we will ask for your emergency contact details, your name, employer details and your child will be registered into school as they arrive
  • If you become unwell you must immediately contact school and arrange collection of your child
  • Social distancing must be enforced when your child is not in school if we are to prevent/minimise the spread of infection
  • You must inform the school immediately if you no longer fall within the key worker list or if you have been asked to self-isolate

 

For children who are staying at home

Children who are being cared for at home will receive their work via seesaw/email as they did during the lockdown in March and children/parents will be able to contact the class teacher any working day between 9 and 3pm. If you require paper copies please let me know as soon as possible.

All school policies will still be in place during this time for the safety of all concerned.

I understand this has been a very strange and sometimes difficult time for all of us and I would like to thank you all for your continued patience and understanding and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thank you

Mrs S A Davies

Head teacher
