Monday 8th Reopening

Good Morning All,

We are busy getting the school ready for reopening on Monday 8th March. There is lots of information here, but start with the Letter 2 Details. This summarises everything you need to know.

Three points I want to share.

  1. If you are unwell, get tested: Donnington Results are really quick!
  2. Get a Lateral Flow test for your family and use them twice a week.

By collecting a home test kit from a PCR test site

You can collect up to 4 home test kits at a local collection point. Each kit contains 7 tests.

Collection points in Telford & Wrekin are located at the PCR testing centres, tests can be collected between 1pm and 7pm there is no need for an appointment you can just turn up. We are lucky that we have Donnington Wood Bowling Club, School Road, Donnington (Telford) TF2 8HU

Or

By ordering a home test kit online.

If you cannot get tested at your workplace, or are unable to go to a test site or collect test kits, you can order a home test kit online.

Do not order online if you can get a test through other methods. This frees up home delivery for those who need it most.

  1. BE READY TO RETURN- we are excited, get a good sleep and have a good breakfast.

Rates in Telford, mainly linked to the factories, are higher than anyone wants, help drive this down by getting tested.

Free Lateral Flow Tests

Rapid lateral flow testing for households and bubbles of school pupils and staff

Around 1 in 3 people with coronavirus (COVID-19) do not have symptoms but can still pass it on to others. Regular testing of people without symptoms (asymptomatic testing) is important to help stop the virus spreading. As lockdown restrictions gradually ease, we all need to play our part to help protect each other.

On Sunday 28 February 2021, the Department of Health and Social Care announced that from Monday 1 March 2021, households with primary school, secondary school and college age children, including childcare and support bubbles, can test themselves twice every week at home as schools return from Monday 8 March 2021. Households, childcare and support bubbles of primary, secondary and college staff can also be tested. Twice-weekly testing will also be offered to adults working in the wider school community, including bus drivers and after school club leaders. The twice-weekly test kits can be accessed:

Via employers if they offer testing to employees
Some employers may be offering lateral flow testing, please check with you employer to see if this option is available to you.
For example: If a member of a household provides works for a business offering Lateral Flow Testing then that business may provide the tests for that household member.

Take a test at a rapid lateral flow test site

You can have a rapid lateral flow test at a local site. Testing at these sites is assisted, which means you will swab yourself under the supervision of a trained operator.

You may need to book an appointment.

Find your nearest rapid lateral flow test site.

In Telford & Wrekin there are three lateral flow test sites:

  • The Place
  • Oakengates
  • The Anstice
  • Madeley
  • Cosy Hall
  • Newport

You can also have a test at the following local pharmacies:

Please note: The Oakengates location is the Walk In Centre on the Car Park, not the rapid test centre at The Place.

By ordering a home test kit online.
If you cannot get tested at your workplace, or are unable to go to a test site or collect test kits, you can order a home test kit online.
Do not order online if you can get a test through other methods. This frees up home delivery for those who need it most.

Order rapid lateral flow home test kits

Schools should not give test kits to parents, carers or household members and should not order more test kits for this purpose. Information on where households can access testing will be made available for schools to share with parents and staff shortly.

Further information is included in the guidance.

Reopening

Dear Parents and Carers,

Following the announcement yesterday the school is working hard on getting ready to reopen on the 8th March.

We are aiming to share more information this week, but this is reliant on government updates.

While we prepare for return please can you support your child to get back into good day/work routines, and sleep patterns. If you need help, please ask.

Please continue to get test if any symptoms develop.

Staff will ring you next week to further discuss.

If you have borrowed tablets or dongles these will need to be returned.

If you have borrowed laptops, these can be borrowed for a bit longer.

We will continue using SeeSaw work as our primary learning tool, allowing you to see your child’s progress through Family SeeSaw.

If any details, like email addresses or phone number have changed, please update us.

Thank you for your continued support, and hopefully, I look forward to seeing you all very soon.

I will update you this week.

Hello

We know you have limited face-to-face time these days, so helping your pupils to manage digital risks might feel like a challenge.

But with Safer Internet Day on the horizon, now is actually a great opportunity to reinforce all those crucial online safety messages. And with the Be Internet Legends team on your side, it doesn’t have to be so hard. Here are three ways to equip families with the tools they need to Be Internet Legends at home.

Send important safeguarding tips home

Most children are learning remotely right now – so they might not be able to access all the safeguarding protection that schools provide.

Our Family Lockdown Guide is designed for you to share with parents, so they can reinforce important messages at home.

It’s full of advice to help parents have the sort of conversations they need to be having right now – and encourage children to be brave and speak up if they’re unsure about anything they come across online.

You can either download everything as a zip and send it home – or point families towards the files on our hub.

Help families develop internet security routines

Keen to make sure your families are sticking to good internet security routines? We’re running a 20-minute parent drop-in about Being Internet Secure on Monday at 3.30pm.

Our experts will share tips about teaching children to build mega strong passwords – and develop helpful habits whenever they go online. It’s not a one-way street, though – we’d love to hear questions and ideas from parents.

Share in your Safer Internet Day comms
Until next time,

The Be Internet Legends team
