Covid-19 and Absence

This flow chart is designed to help you make an informed decision about sending your child to school if they're feeling unwell. If you make the decision to keep them at home you must leave a voicemail, on each day of absence, stating your childs name, class and their symptoms

If someone who lives in the child's household has symptoms, then the child must self isolate for 14 days or, until they have a negative test confirmed. We encourage families to get tested to reduce unnecessary time off school.

What to do if your child tests positive?

To ensure effective action is taken in a timely manner we've set up a dedicated phone line for families to report if their child tests positive for COVID. The number is 07835977040

Please DO NOT ring the number for anything other than if your KPJA child tests positive for COVID and it can be proven with NHS documentation.

    Police Advice Re Halloween
    Halloween 2020 will be different to previous years as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. In line with the ‘Rule of Six’ legislation, people will not be able to hold Halloween parties and trick-or-treating is unadvisable in the current climate. This following advice aims to inform the public on how Halloween 2020 should look like. The Key Messages are • One dilemma facing parents this year is how to take part in Halloween without breaching Covid-19 legislation. • Our advice is for parents is to steer away from taking part in the traditional form of trick-or-treating. It is vital that people from different households mix as little as possible in order to stop the spread of coronavirus. • For many children dressing up and going out with friends and family trick-or-treating is a highlight of their year and we understand not being able to do this will be upsetting for them, especially when they’ve already had such a tough 2020. • An alternative approach suggested for parents which the Force endorses, draws on the rainbow challenge which proved so popular in the spring. People who want to be involved in Halloween can display pumpkins (unlit), or pictures of the vegetable in their windows in the run-up to October 31. Then parents/guardians can go out with their dressed-up children and try to find them. If so desired, the adult can give the child a treat every time they spot a pumpkin. • This would make a great Halloween themed activity during half term. • A number of pumpkin posters for children to colour in are available to download and print from our website. • We urge parents of older children to talk to them about why it’s advised they don’t take part in trick-or-treating this year and to respect people’s decision not to take part. Anti-social behaviour is not acceptable and additional police patrols will be taking place during the Halloween period. • A no trick-or-treating poster is available to download from our website. This advice is subject to change, should the guidance/legislation from Government change before October 31, 2020. Thank you for your cooperation. Kettering Town Neighbourhood Policing Team

    Please be reminded not to park or stop on the zig zag lines outside school when dropping off and collecting children from school. This is dangerous and illegal and we all have a responsibility to keep our children safe. Thank you for your support with this.

    The Library
    We are pleased to announce that we will be reopening our library on a rota system, for the children who have no outstanding books. Due to additional measures in place in light of Covid, children will have the opportunity to change their books (both a library and reading scheme book) every two weeks according to the following schedule: Week A (from 28/9/20) Wednesday – Year 3 Friday – Year 5 Week B (from 5/10/20) Wednesday – Year 4 Friday - Year 6 This allows for additional cleaning and quarantine of books between bubble visits. Please note that if your child still has library or reading scheme books on loan from before the summer, they will not be able to take a book from the shelves but can continue to access eBooks on Oxford Reading Buddy. You will receive a separate letter in due course regarding outstanding loans. Best wishes, Mrs Peacock & Mrs Tamkin Raising Standards Leader for English & School Librarian
