Re-opening of schools from September
We will welcome back all of our students to school full time from the beginning of the autumn term. We want to ensure the safety of our staff and students and we have put a number of measures in place to ensure we minimise the risk of transmission of COVID by following government guidance. We have provided the full opening of schools guidance link below:
Advice for parents/how you can support the measures
Please continue to be aware of COVID symptoms, follow the below guidance and keep up to date with any changes.
Students using ERYC school bus facility
If your child uses either school or public transport to travel to school, they will be required to wear a face covering. Disposable coverings should be thrown away after each use, so it is recommended that reusable cloth coverings are used. These will need to be placed in a sealed plastic bag during the day and then washed for reuse. If a student loses their mask during the school day and requires one for their journey home, the school will be able to provide a one-use disposable mask. Please see Government Guidance below.
Testing and tracing for coronavirus
If a student or a member of your family have symptoms, we would ask that you remain at home, we would encourage you to engage in the test and trace programme. We have provided a link below to enable you to book a test and it provides information to understand your test result and find out what to do if you're contacted by NHS Test and Trace. If you are ever unsure, please ring the school and we will do our best to advise. Further links are available on our Important Information page and can be found by clicking here
