11 January 2022,

Dear Parents and Carers,

We wish you all a Happy New Year.

It was great to see so many happy faces coming back to school last week.

As you will be aware the number of Covid cases locally and nationally is very high. The most recent version of our Covid risk assessment was written to allow flexibility of actions to protect our community, depending on the local situation. We would like to make you aware of some temporary actions we are taking whilst the cases of Covid in the community remain high.

  • Staff will be wearing face coverings in all communal and learning areas where pupils could be present.
  • We are restricting the numbers of visitors on site to essential visits only.
  • Visitors to the school must follow our risk assessment by wearing face coverings and taking a lateral flow test before visiting.

These are in addition to any ongoing mitigations, such as half termly sanitisations and an additional cleaner during the school day.

We will keep things under review over the coming weeks and keep you informed of any changes.

As always, we will do whatever we can to protect face to face learning. This is so important for our pupils in terms of consistency of routine, and the expertise and resources we have on site. We are proud of the whole community for working together to ensure safe staffing levels, even when it has been very challenging recently. In the event of an isolation or class/bubble having to close then we will continue with the personalised remote learning provision delivered previously.

You can help to keep everyone safe by:

  • Ensuring your child does not come to school when they are not well
  • Following the guidance we sent out before Christmas for anyone who is a close contact to take daily lateral flow tests or isolate.
  • Completing twice weekly lateral flow tests. Ideally one of these would be on a Sunday evening as it would have the least impact on the school community in the event of a positive case
  • Following our risk assessment and wearing a face covering and taking a lateral flow test if you have a pre-arranged visit on the school site.

We do know that many parents of pupils with complex health needs are very anxious at the moment, particularly given the number of cases in Hammersmith and Fulham. If you do wish to discuss any concerns about your child attending school, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or a member of the leadership team. 

We are really looking forward to the term ahead and, as always, enjoying fun and exciting learning opportunities together

Yours sincerely

The Senior Leadership Team
