***FRIDAY 5TH MARCH***
In light of the government’s announcement on Monday 22nd February, all school students are set to return from Monday 8th March. Although this does not affect us directly, as we have been open throughout this lockdown, this will have an impact on school attendance and the expectations around this. The guidance is very clear in that attendance from the 8th March is compulsory and any interventions around this expectation will resume. Once again, I know that this may be difficult, in that, some student’s anxiety may have risen and this could be a barrier, however I wish to be clear in that we will support students to attend wherever possible. Please contact us to discuss ways in which we may be able to support your child into school.
Our school remains COVID secure in that we have a detailed risk assessment and protocol document (displayed on our website) which outlines our control measures. Ultimately, the NHS Hands, Face, and Space initiative underpin these. We also have a keep to the left process throughout the buildings with staff and students expected to wear face coverings where social distancing cannot take place. As mentioned before, if for any reason your child is unable to wear a face covering, please provide medical exemption.
We would encourage our pupils to consent and take part in the on-site testing when they return from the 8th of March. The testing will consist of three tests on-site, each 3 to 5 days apart, before moving to home testing. If you require a new consent form please contact the school office on 01323 500005. If you do not wish your child to take part in this testing process, this is not a reason to keep them at home and you should still send them in to school. We will not be issuing home testing kits for pupils before the week beginning Monday 15 March.
If your child has COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test result, they should stay at home and self-isolate immediately. This is because they could pass the infection on to others, even if they do not have symptoms.
4th March 2021 **COMPETITION TIME** please see details below. Updated deadline of 31st March 2021
For the period of Term 4, all students accessing the Bexhill site will need to attend Tile Barn Road site. Here students will have access to a number of specialist learning spaces in order to help with GCSE assessments. Please continue to contact the Bexhill KS4 Team on the mobile number or call the Tile Barn office number on 01424 854825.
What to do if your child or family member gets symptoms or tests positive over the holidays
If anyone in your home develops symptoms of COVID-19 over the half-term holiday, they should get tested. This link helps you book a test at a government test centre: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
They should remain at home for the 10-day self-isolation period. This is to stop the spread of the coronavirus. No one else needs to get tested unless they have symptoms of COVID-19.
