Information for Parents RE: Covid-19

Easter Holiday reporting of positive Covid cases

We hope that everyone stays healthy over the Easter break. However, if your child develops Covid symptoms within two days of school closing for the Easter break please get your child tested. (Friday 2nd and Saturday 3rd April)

A Covid test can be booked online via www.gov.uk  or by calling  119

(Covid symptoms are continuous cough, high temperature and change / loss of taste or smell )

If your child tests positive please inform the school as soon as possible so that any possible contacts can be traced so that they can isolate for 10 days. Taking this action will help limit the transmission of Covid cases across our local area.

Please contact the school using the school mobile on 07595615388 or by email: covid.fishponds@dbat.org.uk

You will need to provide the following information:

  1. Child name and class
  2. Date symptoms appeared and desription of the symptoms.
  3. Date test taken and when result arrived.

The school mobile and email address will be checked daily at 9.30am for 6 days after closure ( up to and including Wednesday 7th April)

We wish you a relaxing and hopefully Covid free Easter break! 

Best wishes from the team at Fishponds.

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.

Best wishes

Debbie and the team at Fishponds.
