CORONAVIRUS, COVID-19 Information

A famous writer, Maya Angelou said, ‘You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.’ We are incredibly fortunate that our Holy Trinity ‘family’ is such a strong, caring and supportive community who can all rely on one another. Please do keep in touch with and help one another, we will send out updates and keep you as informed as we possibly can.

We have throughout the pandemic followed Government Guidance and remained open to support our community in the very best way that we can.   During this time we have made changes, in line with national guidance, to our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy and our Behaviour Policy. Please see links below for details.

At school we have also made changes to our COVID-19 Health and Safety Risk Assessment to ensure safe and best practice. The Risk Assessment document is a live document that will be constantly reviewed in-line with national and regional advice from the Government, Public Health England, Diocese, Northumberland County Council and Unions as well as other appropriate bodies.  If you would like to view our risk assessment please contact the school.  The two main documents that have formed the basis of our decision making for risk assessments in school can be viewed by following the links below.

The importance of good personal hygiene, including regular hand-washing, to prevent the spread of infection continues to be stressed at school and home.

Public Health England remind parents not to go to a pharmacy, GP or hospital if they suspect their child has any of the symptoms.  They need to keep their child at home; follow the stay at home advice as best they can; and only contact NHS 111 or use NHS 111 online (which is being updated) or phone their GP if their symptoms deteriorate.  Public Health Agency advice on Covid19

If you have any specific questions about anything or a particular concern over anything related to the school, please phone 01289306142 or email it to admin@holytrinity.northumberland.sch.uk.

Just as you are likely to be a little concerned and confused by what is going on, so are some of our children for whom change and uncertainty can be difficult. We all need to be filling them with confidence and love, making sure they feel secure and happy. If, at any point, you feel your child is really struggling then please do contact us and we will do what we can to help.

 

When dropping off or collecting your child, please help us to keep everybody safe.
