Please Help Us to Keep St Mary's Covid Secure

In September 2021 we hope to return to a routine timetable and school organisation but we ask that everyone continues to remain vigilant and follows current government guidance.  Should we need to re-introduce any of of the Covid restrictions used previously we will notify parents/carers and continue to post useful information on this webpage.

Our Covid Control Measures

In line with government and local authority advice, we will continue to implement the following control measures to prevent the spread of all infections and Covid 19 in particular:

  • Increased ventilation
  • Promoting hand and respirtatory hygeine in pupils
  • Routine hand washing
  • Increased cleaning, particulalry of touch points and surfaces

If you Suspect Someone in your Household has Covid

The most common symptoms of Covid 19 are:

loss of taste and smell

a new and continuous cough

a temperature of 37.8 or above 

If anyone in your household experiences any of the above please  arrange for them to have a covid test: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Children under 18 who are close contacts of a positive case DO NOT need to isloate, so they can attend school.  Please do not send your child to school, however, if they are suffering from any of the symptoms currently associated with Covid 19 or if they have tested positive for Covid 19 but are asymptomatic.
