Welcome back to our final term at St Edmund’s Academy. Thank you all for your continued support in helping us keep the adults and children safe during these times, for following the one-way system and maintaining social distancing.

We now ask that should you need to come in to the school office or attend a meeting that you wear a mask. Remember you can always contact the office staff by telephone on 01553 772018 or email office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk.

As per Government guidelines, all children are to continue attending school during this period of lockdown.

Just a reminder of steps we can all continue to take at school and at home:
• Good hygiene – regular handwashing for more than 20 seconds, regular sanitising of hands
• Good respiratory hygiene – sneeze or cough into a tissue and wash hands after
• Do not come into school if you or anyone in your family has symptoms.

Symptoms of Covid-19
• New persistent cough
• Temperature of 37.8 or more
• Loss of sense to smell or taste

If you, or anyone in your household develops any ONE of the above symptoms, please contact school, we will tell you what you need to do next.

We all have a duty to ensure the health and safety of each other. Government guidance states that schools must ensure that staff members and parents/carers understand that they will need to be ready and willing to:

• Book a test if they or their child are displaying symptoms. Staff and pupils must not come into the school if they have symptoms and must be sent home to self-isolate if they develop them in school. All children can be tested, including children under 5, but children aged 11 and under will need to be helped by their parents/carers if using a home testing kit.

• Provide details of anyone they or their child have been in close contact with if they were to test positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) or if asked by NHS Test and Trace.

• Self-isolate if they have been in close contact with someone who tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), or if anyone in their household develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19).

If you require any non-urgent medical advice regarding symptoms, please contact 111 in the first instance. For school related information, please contact the office or your child’s teacher via Class Dojo.

Dear Parents/Carers

 

Next week is half term, school will be closed and there will be no learning posted onto Dojo for the week.  We will start again with the online learning on Monday 1st June.  On that day, we will also send out letters to the parents of children in nursery, reception, Y1 and Y6 who have said they would like their children to return to school once this has been confirmed by the government.  If schools are given permission for these children to return to school, we plan for this to start on Monday 8th June.

 

Please continue to observe the current social distancing rules:

  • Stay 2m apart from anyone you don’t live with.
  • You are allowed to meet 1 person from outside of your household but only outdoors as long as you stay 2m apart.
  • Do not invite people into your house and do not go inside anyone else’s house.
  • You can exercise outside.
  • You can visit the park but only with people who live in the same house as you.
  • You can have a picnic in the park but only with people who live in the same house as you.
  • Children CANNOT play on equipment in the park.
  • Children should not be meeting up and playing with friends at all.
  • It is not OK to meet up with people who do not live in the same house as you, even if they are members of your family.

 

You and everyone in your house should self-isolate for 14 days if you have any symptoms of Covid-19.  This means you must not go out at all, not even to the shops.  The current list of symptoms is:

 

1.    A high temperature

2.    A new, consistent cough

3.    Loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

 

I hope you manage to have a relaxing half term break. Thank you for your continued support in these unusual times.

Dear Parents/Carers

 

I have been advised this week that sadly the new school will not be ready for us to move into in September.  Obviously, this is disappointing news.  It does however mean we can now still have a ‘Goodbye St Ed’s’ celebration before the move!

 

With Covid-19 restrictions, we do not know what a return to school will look like in September but will keep you informed as soon as we know more.  The return to school in September will be to St Edmund’s.

 

We will not be changing to the new uniform until we move to the new school.  Your child can continue to wear the St Ed’s royal blue top until that time.  If you need a new sweatshirt/cardigan for your child, please buy plain navy blue as then you will be able to use that in the new school.  We will not be selling any logo school uniform until nearer the move. 

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher or the school office

office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk

 

Kind regards

Dear Parent/Carer

 

I hope you are all staying safe and keeping well.

 

Please see the information below that I would like to share with you regarding the phased return of children to St Edmund’s Academy.

 

The Prime Minister has set out a recovery strategy for the UK now the peak of the Coronavirus has passed which means it is soon time to begin the phased return of children to school. 

 

Why do the Government want groups of children to start coming back to school?

The Government wants to get children back into school as soon as the scientific advice allows because it is the best place for them to learn and good for their mental wellbeing to have social interactions with other children and teachers.

 

What does the latest scientific advice say?

  • Younger children are less likely to become unwell if infected with coronavirus.
  • Small numbers going back to school and then gradually increasing numbers reduces the risk of increasing the rate of transmission.
  • Schools will put changes in place to reduce risks (smaller classes, encouraging good hand and respiratory hygiene)

 

Which children will come back to school first?

School have been instructed to start welcoming back nursery, reception, Y1 and Y6 children after 1st June.  We are currently planning how this will happen.  These arrangements will not begin until Monday 8th June.  After half term parents of children in these year groups, who have said they wish to send their children to school, will get more detailed information.

 

You should not send your child to school until you have had more information and dates.

 

How will risks to children, teachers and families be managed?

  • Limit on numbers and how much children mix with each other
  • small groups (15 or less)
  • staggered start and finish times (so that parents and children are not waiting outside together in groups)
  • staggered lunch and breaks
  • children from each group will not mix with children from other groups
  • each group will use the same room every day and will be the only group to use that room
  • Children will have their own table and own set of resources that will not be shared with other children
  • children will be encouraged to keep 2m away as much as possible
  • Avoid contact with anyone with symptoms
  • Frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices
  • Regular cleaning of the setting and equipment

 

Staff, parents and children should continue to lower the risk of transmission by:

  • Not attending school if they or anyone in their family has symptoms
  • Regular hand cleaning
  • Good respiratory hygiene (nose blowing – catch it, kill it, bin it)
  • Good cleaning measures

 

What will the children be learning in school?

Teachers in school will deliver the learning and development requirements as far as possible in the current circumstances.  They will consider the mental health and well-being of children and provide additional support where needed.  This will be for those attending school as well as those remaining at home

 

Does my nursery, reception, Y1, Y6 child have to attend?

Once the dates have been planned and you have had a letter to inform you of this, the Government strongly encourages you to send your child to school unless they are self-isolating or shielding due to health conditions (see below). You should notify school as usual if your child is unable to attend.  Parents will not be fined for non-attendance at this time.

 

Where can I find out more information?

The full document that this summary of information is from can be found here.

 

More information on shielding and health conditions can be found here.

 

What do you need to do now?

You do not need to do anything, parents of children who have already said they wish to send their child to school will be contacted with more information during the week commencing 1st June.

 

You should not send your child to school until you have had more information and dates.

 

Kind regards

Scroll down for Russian & Lithuanian translations

 

Dear Parents/carers

 

We do hope you are all continuing to stay safe and well at home. As you probably know, lockdown remains in place for at least another 3 weeks meaning school will not reopen as usual after the Easter break.

Teachers will start to deliver lessons and set work online daily from Monday 20th April on Class Dojo. 

 

Children are expected to access this and upload work or photos for their teacher to ‘mark’.  There will also be assemblies, stories and links to other useful websites that you can use at home.  Keep doing what you can and remember through talking and playing with your children, they will be learning.

 

Please be careful to check that the parental controls are high on your devices. There are various guides that can help with this. This is the link to the NSPCC website. https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/

 

A skeleton staff will continue to be in school for the critical care of key worker children. If you do need us please either telephone the school between 8am and 3pm, email office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk or contact us via Class Dojo. It is very important that if you update your contact number or email address you let us know.

 

Below is the latest information from the Government for parents and carers.

Stay safe

Mrs Graver

 

 

Russian:

 

Уважаемые родители / опекуны

 

Мы надеемся, что вы все продолжаете оставаться в безопасности и чувствовать себя как дома. Как вы, наверное, знаете, блокировка остается в силе еще как минимум 3 недели, что означает, что школа не будет вновь открыта, как обычно, после пасхальных каникул.

 

Учителя начнут проводить уроки и ежедневно начинать работу с понедельника, 20 апреля, в классе Додзё. Ожидается, что дети получат доступ к этому и загрузят свои работы или фотографии для своего учителя в «отметку». Там также будут сборки, истории и ссылки на другие полезные сайты, которые вы можете использовать дома. Продолжайте делать то, что вы можете и помните, разговаривая и играя со своими детьми, они будут учиться.

 

Пожалуйста, будьте осторожны, чтобы убедиться, что родительский контроль высоко на ваших устройствах. Существуют различные руководства, которые могут помочь с этим. Это ссылка на сайт NSPCC. https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/

 

Скелетный персонал продолжит посещать школу для оказания неотложной помощи детям ключевых работников. Если вы нуждаетесь в нас, позвоните в школу с 8:00 до 15:00, напишите по адресу office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk или свяжитесь с нами через Class Dojo. . Очень важно, что если вы недавно обновили свой контактный номер или адрес электронной почты, вы сообщите нам об этом.

Mieli tėvai / globėjai

 

Tikimės, kad jūs ir toliau būsite saugūs ir gerai namuose. Kaip jūs tikriausiai žinote, užraktas išliks dar mažiausiai 3 savaites, tai reiškia, kad po Velykų pertraukos mokykla nebus atnaujinta kaip įprasta.

 

Nuo balandžio 20 d., Pirmadienio, „Dojo“ klasėje mokytojai pradės vesti pamokas ir nustatyti darbą internete. Tikimasi, kad vaikai galės tai pasiekti ir įkelti savo mokytojo darbą ar nuotraukas „pažymėti“. Taip pat bus rinkinių, istorijų ir nuorodų į kitas naudingas svetaines, kuriomis galite naudotis namuose. Kalbėdami ir žaisdami su vaikais darykite tai, ką galite, ir prisiminkite, jie mokysis.

 

Prašome atidžiai patikrinti, ar jūsų įrenginiuose aukšta tėvų kontrolė. Tam gali padėti įvairūs vadovai. Tai yra nuoroda į NSPCC svetainę. https://www.nspcc.org.uk/keeping-children-safe/online-safety/

 

Skeleto personalas ir toliau lankys mokyklą, kurioje bus kritiškai prižiūrimi svarbiausi darbuotojai. Jei jums reikia mūsų, susisiekite su mokykla nuo 8 iki 15 val., Rašykite el. Paštu office@st-edmunds.norfolk.sch.uk arba susisiekite su mumis per „Dojo“ klasę. Labai svarbu, jei neseniai atnaujinote savo kontaktinį numerį ar el. Pašto adresą, praneškite mums..

Спасибо за вашу поддержку в эти неопределенные времена. Пожалуйста, обратите внимание на следующее:

• Все дети, которые сегодня ходят в школу, будут приносить свои рабочие пакеты домой.

• Как и в предыдущем сообщении, рабочие пакеты для других детей можно получить в приюте на парковке. Любые пакеты, не собранные сегодня, будут снова выпущены в понедельник.

• Если вы изолируете себя, не входите в здание школы.

• Если вы сказали, что вам нужно место для вашего ребенка на следующей неделе, чтобы вы все еще могли выполнять свою работу, с вами свяжутся, чтобы подтвердить это. Другие дети не должны приходить в школу на следующей неделе.

• Пока ваших детей нет в школе, вы должны следить за тем, чтобы они оставались дома и не играли или не играли в других местах в соответствии с государственными рекомендациями.

• Сотрудники будут в школе, и на телефонные линии все равно будут приходить ответы в школьные часы, если у вас возникнут какие-либо вопросы или проблемы

• Visi vaikai, kurie šiandien lankosi mokykloje, atsineš savo darbo paketą namo.

• Kaip ir ankstesniame bendravime, kitų vaikų darbo paketus galite gauti iš pastogės automobilių stovėjimo aikštelėje. Šiandien nesurinktos pakuotės vėl bus išleidžiamos pirmadienį.

• Jei nesate izoliuoti, neveskite į mokyklos pastatą.

• Jei sakėte, kad kitą savaitę jums reikia vietos savo vaikui, kad galėtumėte vis tiek atlikti savo darbą, į jus bus susisiekta, kad tai patvirtintumėte. Kiti vaikai neturėtų ateiti į mokyklą kitą savaitę.

• Kol jūsų vaikai nelanko mokyklos, turėtumėte įsitikinti, kad jie lieka namuose ir neleidžia žaisti ar žaisti kitose vietose, kaip numatyta vyriausybės rekomendacijose.

• Darbuotojai lankys mokyklą, o į telefono linijas vis tiek bus atsakoma mokyklos laikais, jei kiltų klausimų ar abejonių.

As stated by Boris Johnson yesterday, school will remain open for the children whose parents are key workers and some other groups of children.  We are currently putting together this list.  Please complete the questionnaire if you need your child to come to school so that you can still do your job. 

 

The teachers are currently putting together work for the children for the next 2 weeks.  This will be a combination of online teaching videos, online links and books that we will have ready tomorrow for the children to take home or for someone to collect.  You will not need to print any resources off.  Most of the work will be accessed through Class Dojo.  If you are not on Class Dojo, please contact school and we will help you set this up.

 

If your child usually has a free school meal and you need some support with this until the Government organises a voucher scheme, please let us know. The school office will remain open for you to contact if you have any questions or concerns during this period.

Как заявил вчера Борис Джонсон, школа будет открыта для детей, чьи родители являются ключевыми работниками, и некоторых других групп детей. В настоящее время мы составляем этот список. Пожалуйста, заполните анкету, если вам нужно, чтобы ваш ребенок пришел в школу, чтобы вы все еще могли выполнять свою работу.

 

В настоящее время учителя собирают работу для детей на следующие 2 недели. Это будет комбинация онлайновых обучающих видео, онлайн-ссылок и книг, которые у нас будут готовы завтра, чтобы дети могли забрать их домой или кого-то собрать. Вам не нужно будет распечатывать какие-либо ресурсы. Большая часть работы будет доступна через Class Dojo. Если вы не в классе Dojo, пожалуйста, свяжитесь со школой, и мы поможем вам это настроить.

 

Если ваш ребенок обычно получает бесплатное школьное питание и вам нужна некоторая поддержка, пока правительство не разработает схему ваучеров, сообщите нам об этом. Школьный офис будет открыт, и вы сможете связаться с ним, если у вас возникнут какие-либо вопросы или проблемы в течение этого периода.

Kaip vakar teigė Borisas Johnsonas, mokykla liks atvira vaikams, kurių tėvai yra pagrindiniai darbuotojai, ir kai kurioms kitoms vaikų grupėms. Šiuo metu sudarome šį sąrašą. Prašome užpildyti klausimyną, jei jums reikia vaiko, kad jis ateitų į mokyklą, kad jūs vis dar galėtumėte atlikti savo darbą.

Šiuo metu mokytojai rengia darbus kitoms 2 savaitėms. Tai bus internetinių mokymo vaizdo įrašų, internetinių nuorodų ir knygų, kurias rytoj paruošime vaikams parnešti į namus ar ką nors surinkti, derinys. Jums nereikės atspausdinti jokių išteklių. Didžioji dalis kūrinių bus pasiekiama per „Dojo“ klasę. Jei nesate Dojo klasėje, susisiekite su mokykla ir mes padėsime jums tai nustatyti.

Jei jūsų vaikas paprastai valgo nemokamą maitinimą mokykloje ir jums reikia tam tikros paramos, kol vyriausybė suorganizuos kvito schemą, praneškite mums. Mokyklos kabinetas liks atidarytas, kad galėtumėte susisiekti, jei per šį laikotarpį kiltų klausimų ar rūpesčių.

We have no new updates but still wanted to stay in touch with you all.

 

You can read yesterdays statement from the Prime Minister on Coronavirus here.

 

St Edmund’s Academy continues to remain open with breakfast club and after school clubs operating as usual.

 

The school will continue to remain open until we are directed otherwise by the Department for Education or the Government. In the meantime, we continue to follow instructions from the Government and would encourage you to do the same regarding handwashing, coughing and sneezing into elbows etc.

 

Again, you can still access the usual ways of home learning to help those who are self-isolating.

 

Just to confirm the Government are advising a period of self-isolation of 14 days for anyone with a fever or new persistent cough. You will need to use your own discretion on this matter unless dictated by medical professionals. School cannot advise on medical matters.  If you have told us that you are keeping your child off self-isolating, please do not return them to school before the end of this period, even if school is still open.

 

We will continue to monitor our staffing levels and endeavour to keep our academy open with sufficient staffing for the number of children we have. In the event of insufficient staff, there is a chance that we will need to close parts of or all of the academy.

 

We will keep you informed of any changes in line with Government advice as soon as they become available.

 

Please check back here for more information as and when we receive it.

We have not been directed to provide ‘work packs’ for pupils, we are required to remain open and teach the children. We will not be providing ‘work packs’ unless directed to do so by the Government. You can still access the usual ways of home learning through this website and additional links have been added today to help those who are self-isolating.

Today, the Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19.

 

Current advice remains in place: no education or children’s social care setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

 

The Chief Medical Officer has advised that the impact of closing schools on both children’s education and on the workforce would be substantial, but the benefit to public health may not be. Decisions on future advice to education or children’s social care settings will be taken based on the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children are a lower risk group.

 

Previous guidance stands:

  • Children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education as normal
  • If children become unwell at school with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they will be sent home
  • Cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces more often
  • Washing hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues
