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. 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.
Following the Prime Ministers accouncement on Monday 4th January 2021, schools were informed that they would be partially closed and only open for children of Key Worker parents and those children considered vulnerable. Following this announcement we have put in place remote learning for all of our children to enable them to be able to access their learning on a daily basis via powerpoint slides or Youtube presentations. You can find more information on our Remote Learning Page.
If your child is currently attending school we would like to remind you that if your child or any member of your household displays symptoms or test positive then you must follow the Government Guidelines.
1. If your child or anyone else living in the same household develop Covid symptoms, then the whole family must self isolate and you must arrange a test for the person with symptoms. The household must stay isolated until the test results come back, if they are negative then you can cease self isolating and return to work/school etc. We would ask that you inform the school of this and keep us informed as soon as you know the test results
2. If you have a child in another school and their bubble has been sent home to isolate, the child or children that attend Buckland Primary must still attend school unless the sibling then developes Covid symptoms, at which point the whole family will need to self isolate as per the first point above.
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.
