OUR SCHOOLCovid Updates
This page is designed to keep parents and carers up to date with the ever changing situation around the Covid-19 pandaemic that caused the partial closure of schools in March 2020 and again from January 2021. On this page you will find up to date information from the Government Guidelines, links to useful websites and any news items that we have sent out from Buckland Primary School.
We are pleased that on our return to school in September 2021 we have been able to lift some of the restrictions across the school; children are no longer being kept in bubbles and they are able to enjoy break times and lunch times together. All the restrictions and guidelines are under constant review by the Government, Local Authority and the school itself and will amended should the need arise.
For any children that test positive for Covid-19, our remote learning offer remains in place for all of our children to enable them to be able to access their learning on a daily basis whilst isolating at home. You can find more information on our Remote Learning Page.
If at any time your child or any member of your household displays symptoms or test positive then you must follow the Government Guidelines. Currently these state that children or adults who test positive for Covid-19 must remain at home for 10 days from the day the symptoms started, however other members of the household do not need to isolate which means if your child is negative they are still able to attend school. Please read the Government Guidelines for full information on the most up to date guidance.
If at any point you are unsure what to do then please call 119 for medical advice. You are also welcome to call the school office if you are unclear on the guidelines around if your child can attend school but please note we are unable to offer medical advice.
