*If your child is showing symptoms of Coronavirus, they must not attend school. For further details visit: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/coronavirus-in-children/*
Please see a letter from Mr Wilson about a positive case of Coronavirus at Woodhouse Primary Academy and the subsequent closure of the Rainbow Room bubble as a precaution between Tuesday 22nd and Friday 2nd October here.
We are delighted to have welcomed the children of Woodhouse Primary Academy back to our school at the start of the Autumn term. In order to open safely, we have come up with detailed plans and new ways of working to support the safe and successful full opening of our school. We have completed a range of detailed risk assessments which can be viewed by all, alongside letters explaining the plans for September on our Wider Opening page here. We have considered the need for children to be safe in school, details of which can be seen here and in our Home School Agreement here. As always, these plans could be affected by changes in the local or national situation. If this is the case, we will update you as soon as is possible.
Woodhouse Primary Academy is open with a range of protective measures in place to protect children, families and adults in school. All eligible children are expected to attend school every day and we will do all we can to support families so that all children can return successfully to learning. If you have specific concerns, it is important that you speak to school about them - we will do what we can to help and support you. Please take the time to read the key information about safe arrival and departure from school, which can be seen here. Those with more than one child at Woodhouse can leave and collect the children at the time and entrance of the oldest child in your family, we will support the children going into class and we will keep the children safe until you arrive at the end of the day. Please be on time - but not early or late - and remember to observe social distancing outside school. Please take extra care about where you choose to park safely and legally, walking a short distance wherever this is possible. Please respect our neighbours and do not block driveways or cause obstruction with thoughtless parking.
Children in Reception and Nursery have made an excellent start to life at Woodhouse and we welcome all new children and families to our school community. There is separate information as well as a parent Q&A document for our new Reception and Nursery families which has been shared with you and is on our website here. If for any reason you are unclear on what is expected, please contact school for guidance and any support you may need. We will do our best to support you.
Full term dates for this year are visible on the website here and include a planned Inset day, when school will be closed to all children, on Monday 2nd November 2020.
If your child is not able to attend school through self-isolation or because of the closure of a class bubble, then they are expected to continue their learning at home. Our committed staff provide a full range of learning opportunities and lessons for children who are unable to attend. There is a wide bank of learning on our Goggle Classrooms or on our Home Learning website, where children can access the high standard of education we expect at Woodhouse. If you have any issues accessing this work, please contact by email: email@example.com. For all children, we will continue to work digitally for: home reading using MyOn (reading books will not currently be sent home), homework using Google classroom and sharing all future letters by text with a link as well as here on the school website - we will no longer be sending any paper letters home. Please complete our survey to help us to support your child in the event they are unable to be present in school: by clicking here.
For children who are eligible for Free School Meals, support is provided by school if your child has to self-isolate for any reason. Each Friday, families of eligible children will receive a text and/or email with the digital voucher for use. If for any reason you need any additional support - then please to contact school and we will do all we can to help. Please note, this does not apply to the Universal Infant Free School Meals which all children in Reception and KS1 receive.
If any personal details, such as phone numbers, addresses, email addresses have changed, please be sure to communicate this to school as soon as possible by contacting the office. As we are no longer sending paper letters, this is especially important.
Thank you for your continued support of our school. Please take care - keep yourselves and your families safe.
