Latest Covid guidance

Changes to the self-isolation period for those who test positive for COVID-19

From Monday 17 January, people who are self-isolating with COVID-19 will have the option to reduce their isolation period after 5 full days if they test negative with a lateral flow device (LFD) test on both day 5 and day 6 and they do not have a temperature. For example, if they test negative on the morning of day 5 and the morning of day 6, they can return to their education or childcare setting immediately on day 6.

The first test must be taken no earlier than day 5 of the self-isolation period, and the second must be taken the following day. All test results should be reported to NHS Test and Trace.

If the result of either of their tests 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.

Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests or anyone who continues to have a temperature will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation.

That’s been another busy week here at Much Wenlock Primary School. The week started off with the fire service giving a talk to the Year 3 class. This proved to be very educational and entertaining and the chance for the children to try on some of the firefighting gear was a bonus. We are seeing a rise in the number of children isolating due to Covid. The Government are bringing in new regulations from Monday reducing the isolation period from 7 to 5 days. I will pass on any new guidance as soon as it is released to schools.

To help give parents an insight into what happens in school we will be publishing a class profile on a fortnightly basis. This will consist of photos, videos and examples of the children’s work from each class.  First up is Mrs Jameson’s class (Year 4).

Finally we are planning on holding parent consultations during the week commencing 14th February 2022. More details will be sent out in the next few weeks.

Have a nice weekend.

Thank you.

Welcome back to a new school term. I hope everyone managed to have a break over the festive period. It has been lovely to see all the children back in class and enjoying their learning. Thankfully we don’t seem to have been too badly affected by Covid but we will be monitoring the situation over the coming weeks.

This week we had a visit from the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissionaire, John Campion, who delivered a new road safety sign to help alleviate parking issues outside of the school. Next week we will be resuming the Crossbar and Maypole after school clubs. Please contact the school office to book a place. Hopefully the Baby and Toddler group will be up and running shortly.

Can I request that children who enjoy playing football at break times please bring in a change of footwear to protect their school shoes and avoid bringing too much mud into school.

We will be updating the school menus shortly so please have a chat with your children about what they like and dislike to eat. We would welcome any feedback.

Have a nice weekend.

Well, what a Term that has been, cumulating in a hectic but exciting week this week. First up on Tuesday was the EYFS and Year 1 nativity. It was lovely to be able to put on a performance for parents and I would like to thank everyone for following the COVID safety measures. I’m sure you will agree it was well worth the effort to see the children on stage again. On Wednesday we had the traditional Christmas lunch. This again proved to be a huge success with the children really getting in to the festive spirit. On Thursday Year 2 , Year 3 and Year 4 put on a lovely outdoor carol service. The singing was lovely and it was so nice to see so many parents watching. The week ended with a visit from Santa who delivered presents to the Reception and Nursery children. In the afternoon the Year 5 and Year 6 children attended Much Wenlock Church for the traditional end of year service. The children certainly rose to the occasion and put on a beautiful end of year performance.

After all that I think we all deserve a nice peaceful Christmas and I look forward to seeing everyone back in school on Wednesday 5th January 2002.

Happy Christmas.

What a term this has been. Thankfully we seem to have gone through the peak of Covid infections within the school and the numbers of new cases are very low. The children are all getting ready for the Christmas break and we will all be making sure that there is a festive feel to the school next week. Wednesday is the school Christmas Lunch and children can come in their Christmas Jumpers and this always proves to be a memorable day. There will be a series of events for parents in school. We do ask that parents wear a mask when in the school and take a LFT test prior to entering the building. have a nice weekend.
