"Enjoying Success"

Information for Parents and Students.

We are extremely grateful for everyone’s support in working together throughout the Covid pandemic. Since the start of term, we have been working hard to ensure that all of our control measures are secure and students are supported in a safe learning environment.

Should you need to confirm a positive case, please contact the school office(01746 762781)

Should you need to report a positive case out of school hours, including during the weekend or school holidays, please contact covid.support@stleonardsprimary.co.uk- We will ensure a response at the earliest opportunity.

In school we constantly promote the NHS key message and would ask all families to raise awareness with their child and make sure they arrive to school with an appropriate face covering.

Attendance expectations

It is vital for all children to return to school to minimise, as much as possible, the longer-term impact of the pandemic on children’s education, wellbeing and wider development.

Missing out on more time in the classroom risks pupils falling further behind. Those with higher overall absence tend to achieve less in school. School attendance has therefore been mandatory from the beginning of the Autumn term. This means from that point, the usual rules on school attendance apply, including:

  • Parents’ duty to secure their child’s attendance regularly at school (where the child is a registered pupil at school and they are of compulsory school age)
  • Schools’ responsibilities to record attendance and follow up absence
  • The availability to issue sanctions, including fixed penalty notices in line with local authorities’ codes of conduct.

All pupils, including those who are clinically extremely vulnerable, can continue to attend school at all Local COVID Alert Levels unless they are one of the very small number of pupils or students under paediatric care (such as recent transplant or very immunosuppressed children) and have been advised specifically by their GP or clinician not to attend school.
