Please can I take this opportunity to send my reassurance to you in these difficult times.
As you are aware, the health and safety of all pupils and staff during this pandemic has been our utmost concern.
We are doing all we can to follow Government guidelines.
We want to reduce the risk of self isolating a class for 14 days at home happening at Trelai Primary.
- Please follow the one way system – don’t go out the wrong way!
- Use the 2 m distance yourself on the playground with other parents
- If only one parent could come on site to bring / collect children if possible it reduces the number of adults on site
- Social Distancing – as required. Staff wear masks in corridors and confined areas where 2m distancing is not possible
- All desks (tables) facing forwardand, children have their own individual resource’s in class
- Class bubbles – including separate entrances and staggered times with separate break times – year group zones in the playground
- Sanitising stations and increased handwashing
- Increased cleaning and ventilation – all windows are open
If a child shows symptons in school we will contact you to collect them and give details as to how to get a test. If the test is positive the class / year group is required to self isolate for 14 days.
You will get a text and a letter will be put on Seesaw
Some classes in the city are already self isolating and doing their school work on Seesaw from home each day.
Please can I remind you of the current guidelines re: Covid-19 and how and when your child should have a test and when you can send your child to School.A message from Dr Heather Payne – Paedetrician at the Wales Government :
So this is how and when you should have your child tested for Covid.
- It is essential that if you think your child has symptons they stay at home.
- They do not come to School and you follow the self-isolation guidance until you can get a test for them.
The main symptons are (as you know):
- a high temperature or fever (this means your child will feel hot to the touch on their chest or back)
- a new continuous cough (this means coughing a lot for more than an hour or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours)
- or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste.
If your child does not have symptons of Covid but has cold-like symptons like a runny nose, they do not need to be tested or self-isolate.”
I hope this letter will reassure you of all the systems we have in place. ‘THANK YOU’ for your ongoing support
