25 things to do in Bristol this summer
Covid 19 information:
The two videos below are child-friendly and explain why the school is being closed, as well as what the Coronavirus is all about.
The school continues to follow Government and Local Authority guidelines with regard to the outbreak of COVID-19 and is working hard to ensure a safe environment at school for all children and staff.
People with symptoms are no longer required to call NHS 111 but are instead urged to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online. We have a duty of care to all the pupils and staff at the school and it is the duty of everyone to act responsibly. We are disinfecting all door handles, switches, buttons and high-use surface areas on a daily basis, and encouraging children to wash their hands regularly throughout the day.
COVID-19: free school meals: The government has announced that children who are eligible for free school meals will be offered meals or vouchers as an alternative if they can no longer attend school due to coronavirus measures.
The current key government measures for COVID-19 are:
- Everyone should avoid gatherings and crowded places, such as pubs, clubs and theatres;
- Everyone should work from home if they can;
All "unnecessary" visits to friends and relatives in care homes should cease;
- People should only use the NHS "where we really need to" - and can reduce the burden on workers by getting advice on the NHS website where possible;
- By 21 March, those with the most serious health conditions must be "largely shielded from social contact for around 12 weeks";
- If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days;
- Those people should, if possible, avoid leaving the house "even to buy food or essentials", but they may leave the house "for exercise and, in that case, at a safe distance from others". Follow this link for Stay at Home guidance.
Everything we do protects children today and prevents abuse tomorrow,
to transform society for every childhood.
