Information about Isolation if someone in the household has tested positive for Covid
The following information is taken directly from a Public Health webinar with Dr Justin Varney: Director of Public Health, Birmingham City Council. (06.01.22)
If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is 5 years old or over, they should come into school. The child should do daily lateral flow tests.
If someone in your household has tested positive and your child is under 5, then they should stay at home with the person who has tested positive until the isolation period is over.
“Today is the first day of the new regional Tier restrictions, with Birmingham now in Tier 3: Very High Alert.
The new rules entail a few changes, some of which allow greater freedom, such as the ability to visit what were 'non-essential' shops, while others will remain the same, such as the general closure of hospitality venues.
Please familiarise yourself with the current Tier 3 restrictions by going to - https://www.gov.uk/guidance/tier-3-very-high-alert”

Please watch this video from Mr Jordan and Mr Keeling to find out how your child can access home learning if they are self isolating.
If your child has a cold, runny nose or similar symptoms, they CAN BE IN SCHOOL. Just send them into school with tissues and remind them to wash hands regularly.
If your child has any of the symptoms of COVID-19 please read!
The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
To protect others, do not go to places like a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital if you have any of these symptoms. Get a test to check if you have coronavirus and stay at home until you get your result.
You must let the school know if your test is positive or negative.

On 19th March, DfE published guidance for schools, colleges and local authorities on maintaining educational provision.
This makes clear that:
➢ if it is at all possible for children to be at home, then they should be;
➢ if a child needs specialist support, is vulnerable or has a parent who is a critical worker, then educational provision will be available for them;
➢ parents should not rely for childcare upon those who are advised to be in the stringent social distancing category such as grandparents, friends, or family members with underlying conditions;
➢ parents should also do everything they can to ensure children are not mixing socially in a way which can continue to spread the virus. They should observe the same social distancing principles as adults;
1. pupils where either parent is a member of NHS frontline staff e.g. doctors and nurses;
2. pupils who have a social worker or are known to the school to be extremely vulnerable;
3. pupils where both parents are on the keyworker list;
4. pupils where one parent is on the key worker list
*There may be a requirement on key worker parents to obtain confirmation from their employer that their specific role is necessary for the continuation of an essential public service. We will let you know if this is required.

Nursery Places September 2020!
If you have a child born between September 2016 and August 2017, please register NOW for your child to start Anglesey Nursery in September 2020.
Reminder - We are a nut free school!
We have several children who potentially may have serious allergic reactions to nuts.
It is everyone's responsibility to ensure the safety of all of the children in our school.
We therefore remind you that children must not bring chocolates into school, for example, Celebrations and Heroes.
A lot of children like to do this for their birthday, but instead of chocolates, they may bring sweets or lollipops.
