Newsletter 24.9.21

We can’t believe next week is the last week of September! This term is already flying by.

 

The Feast of St. Gabriel

Next Wednesday it is the Feast day of St. Gabriel who is the patron saint of our school. We will be live streaming Mass in each classroom at 10am. Later in the day each class will also be playing some games with a ‘communication’ theme as this celebrates St. Gabriel the messenger.

 

Individual / Siblings Photos

Yesterday we had the company Tempest in school for our individual and sibling photographs.

Please be aware that, should you wish to buy the photo, they can be ordered online or you can send the form back to school by next Friday (1.10.21).

 

Flu Vaccination

We have our day for our school aged children to be vaccinated against Flu on the 11th October. Please send your blue form back into school giving your permission if you would like your child to receive this immunising spray.

 

Concerns

Please remember that if you have any concerns or there is anything worrying your child, do address it with their class teacher. This is important as it puts everyone involved in the full picture and best places us to support and help your child. You can either catch class teachers at pick up at the end of the day, or contact the school office so a phone call at a mutually agreeable time can be arranged.

Current COVID Guidance to Schools from Welsh Government:

Anyone with symptoms – a new continuous cough, fever or high temperature or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste – should book a PCR test and remain in self-isolation until the test result is known. You can find the latest information on self-isolation arrangements at www.gov.wales/self‑isolation.

 

Those who are under 18 or fully vaccinated are no longer required to self-isolate if they are identified as close contacts. But they will be contacted to let them know that they’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive. They will also be offered two PCR tests and provided with information and advice on how to minimise the risks of onward spread. If your child is identified as a close contact, they can still attend school unless they develop symptoms or are advised otherwise by TTP. Please continue to let us know if your child tests positive.

If a child tests positive, only a minority of their classmates will be identified as close contacts. But if there is a pattern of cases TTP may ask us to update you on the situation and remind you of key steps, including advising you to keep an eye out for new symptoms your child may develop, and to stay away from vulnerable family and friends in the short-term.
