Government advice on the coronavirus

As a school and Trust we understand that it can be worrying hearing about the coronavirus and its potential impact. The School and Trust take the health of all the children  very seriously and follow the health advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England. At the moment there is no need to keep children off school or not allow children to go on educational visits. The school is actively promoting handwashing and encouraging the use of sanitisers where soap is not available (e.g. tube etc).

Should you have concerns regarding your child you should contact 111 for advice and following this inform the school in writing of their advice if it is to self isolate and confirm the date when this will end and the child will return. This is the same advice as provided to staff and is in line with recommendations from health and education professionals. We will keep you updated if there is a change in the advice given to school by the Department for Education. Until then the school will operate as normal. If you have any further concerns, we would suggest contacting your GP for additional advice.

Attendance, absence and punctuality

It is vital for your child’s learning that they attend school regularly. Therefore, your child is expected to attend school every day unless they are ill or have a medical appointment. If your child is absent from school, please let us know the reason by phoning the school, on the first morning of their absence. If your child is absent a great deal or if your child is persistently late this will be followed up by our Pupil and Family Support Worker and possibly by Newham’s Attendance Officers. Holidays are not authorised during term time.
