Information for Parents RE: Covid-19

Re-opening information for Monday 8th March 2021

As you are aware, the Government has directed schools to re-open on Monday 8th March 2021. We are really looking forwards to seeing all of the children again! Please note that Y1 and some Y5 children will not be returning until Wednesday 10th March.

Our 'Parent Handbook' outlines the organisation of the school day, what the school day will look like and steps we are taking to limit any potential transmission of Covid. This has been emailed to all of our families already and is also available to read in the window below.

Please continue to remember that if your child or a member of your family, household or support bubble shows symptoms of Covid 19 (continuous cough, high temperature, loss of taste or smell) please stay at home, book a test through NHS Track and Trace and inform the school as soon as possible of the result.

How do I let the school know my child is isolating or has tested positive?

If your child gains a positive Covid test result, please alert the school on this email: Covid.fishponds@dbat.org.ukor phone the school office on 0117903049.

You will need to provide the following information :

Child's name and year group.

Days child was in school.

When symptoms started and date of test taken.

This will help us to make contact with anyone who may need to isolate. 

Once we know your child is isolating we will set remote learning for them to help them keep up with their learning.

Visit our Remote Learning Page to find out more! 

Best wishes

Debbie and the team at Fishponds.
