Another good week was had a Clockhouse last week and as always we thank you for the support you give us with all that we do!
Thank you for all those who supported us and had the special dinner on Thusday. We hope the children enjoyed it, we served over 400 dinners - a record for these days! We have another special dinner coming up very soon - watch this space!
Good luck to the Tag Rugby team who take part in a borough competition on Tuesday.
Covid (the below was sent last week also)
I know for us all this continues to be an anxious and difficult time. Please can I ask that should your child test positive for Covid that you alert the school straight away so that we can alert the families in the class and they can make informed decisions about advice to take.
The current rules for isolation are as follows:
All people – including pupils, parents and teachers - have to isolate for a minimum of five full days after the day of a positive test before then going back to school if they have tested negative twice.
The first full day of isolation is considered to be the day following the positive test. Following the fifth full day of isolation – on the sixth day - it will be possible for people who have received two negative LFD tests on consecutive days to go back to school. People who have tested positive can now take two LFD tests on day 5 and day 6, and if both are negative and they do not have a temperature, they can end their self-isolation on day 6 and return to their education setting immediately. If either test is positive, they should continue to self-isolate until they get negative results from two LFD tests on consecutive days or until they have completed 10 full days of self-isolation, whichever is earliest
In practice it means that if a child or teacher tests positive on a Saturday, that would be considered day 0. They could then take tests on the morning of Thursday (day 5) and Friday (day 6). If they tested negative on both days and did not have a temperature they would be then able to return to school on the Friday.
I know we have shared this before and if you need help calculating days, I am more than happy to help with this.
Have a good week everyone!
Stay safe team Clockhouse!
