St Ann’s School: Third Lockdown Provision (Please Click)
Every good wish for a very happy and healthy 2021
Amidst all of the January gloom and everyone’s worries about the new variant Covid it has been great to welcome back students to school this week in spite of the third National Lockdown and to catch up with those families whose young person has remained at home.
During these uncertain times we know that family situations can change very quickly so we will be sending you regular Google forms so that you can let us know the sort of school provision that will help you most in the coming weeks.
Please take a few moments to complete and submit this new Google form below for the period 11.01.21 to 22.01.21 as this really helps us with planning and we hope will reassure you as to the provision available.
Keep well and do email or ring if there is anything that we can help with.

This morning we were advised that there has been a confirmed case(s) of COVID-19 within the staff population.
We are continuing to monitor the situation and are following government guidance. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your young person. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
Please note that your young person was not a contact of the member of staff who tested positive. St Ann’s remains open and providing your young person stays well, he/she can continue to attend school as normal. We will keep this under review.
What to do if your young person develops symptoms of COVID 19:
If your young person develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared.
All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
Household members staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.
If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
• new continuous cough and/or
• high temperature
• a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
If your young person or anyone in the household does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS 111 at:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/ or by phoning 111.
How to stop COVID-19 spreading
There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19.
• Wash your hands regularly and for at least 20 seconds.
• Cover your face in enclosed spaces, especially where social distancing may be
difficult and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet.
• It is now compulsory to wear cloth face coverings on public transport, shops and
several other indoor settings.
• Stay 2 metres apart where possible, or 1 metre with extra precautions in place.
• Keep your distance from people who are outside your household or support bubble.
• Limit social gatherings (including abiding by the ‘rule of 6’) and avoid crowded places.

It is hard to believe that we’re at the end of the third full week back at school. Time seems to have flown by and students seem to be well settled and increasingly familiar with their daily class routines. If however you have any concerns about any aspects of your young person’s time at school please do contact St Ann’s office and we can arrange either a (Covid secure) face to face meeting or a telephone or virtual meeting with the appropriate member of staff.
