Keeping children safe during the Covid-19 pandemic


  • We have grouped the children into small bubbles containing the same children and staff each day
  • We have limited access to the school to reduce the number of people everyone comes into contact with
  • Children have staggered starts and finish times
  • We are spending as much time as possible in our large open spaces to support social distancing
  • We are cleaning on a more regular basis
  • We have a comprehensive risk assessment approved by the local authority.  This includes robust procedures for dealing with any suspected case
