Positive Covid case notification over the Easter Break
We very much hope that this doesn’t happen, however, if your child develops Covid symptoms (fever, loss of taste and/or smell, persistent cough) on either Thursday 1st April or Friday 2nd April and then tests positive (they will need to take a PCR test not an LFT) up to and including Tuesday 6th April, the school should be contacted immediately by sending an email to email@example.com. We will monitor this email address until the morning of Wednesday 7th April. Please tell us when your child first showed symptoms and provide a contact number. We will then telephone you to establish whether we need to advise school close contacts about isolation requirements. We will work with the DfE and Public Health where needed. If your child develops symptoms from Saturday 3rd April and then tests positive, please then follow advice given to you by NHS Testing and Tracing. We will do all we can to assist you over the school holiday so if you need further support, please email firstname.lastname@example.org . (This message will be on the school’s home page too if you need to find it.)
LFT tests should not be used on primary aged children – if you have collected a supply from a test centre for use at home, they are supplied for adult use for asymptomatic testing. If you or your child have symptoms you need to arrange for a PCR test.
Welcome to Sandhills Community Primary School
On behalf of the staff, governors, children and parents may I extend a very warm welcome to you and your family to Sandhills Community Primary School.
At Sandhills, we aim to create a happy and caring place to learn where kindness and respect are at the heart of the life of the school.
The welfare of the children and their progress are of the utmost importance to us and we want to ensure that all children have the opportunity to achieve their potential both academically, so that they are ready for the next stage of their school career, and in their own personal development as individuals and citizens of the future.
We also encourage parents to become actively involved in their children’s education whether it’s through supporting them at home, meeting the teachers or helping out in school or at school events. Our PTA work hard to involve the whole school community in providing additional resources and social events that make such a difference to the life of the school.
Whether you are a pupil, visitor, current or prospective parent, we hope you will enjoy exploring our website to discover more about learning at Sandhills. We encourage visits to the school, and if you would like to experience the exciting opportunities on offer to children in our care, please make an appointment via the school office.
We believe that your children’s learning journey is lifelong and we feel privileged that Sandhills Community Primary School is where this very important journey begins.
Mrs Emma Coleman
Headteacher, Sandhills Community Primary School
