Dear Parents and Carers,
We understand that returning your child to school whilst the COVID-19 pandemic is still present in our country is still a worrying prospect for many of you, but I hope that the communications and information we have sent out to parents have reassured you that we are doing everything we can to make school as safe an environment as possible. On this page you will find our latest COVID-19 updates. All our risk assessments and protocols are being evaluated and reviewed on a fortnightly basis so our risk assesment document may be subject to regular change.
This will be the place that you will find the most up to date information regarding how we are minimising the risk of COVID-19 in school and what measures we are putting in place on a daily basis.
If you don't find the answers to your questions in the documents below, please contact the school office where will be able to help you with your queries.

Although some children have returned to school already, for many, the new autumn term will be their first time stepping into a classroom since lockdown began. Understandably, this may be a strange or worrying time for some children, parents and carers, and schools.
We know that supporting children’s mental wellbeing during the return to school is a key priority for many of you and us at Broadbent Fold. Please see the following link for returning to school resources:

If a pupil tests negative and if they feel well then they will be recorded as code I (illness). Code X will only be used up until the time of the negative test result.
If a pupil tests positive, they should continue to self-isolate in line with public health guidance. Code X should be used for the period of self-isolation until the test. After the pupil tests positive, they should be recorded as code I (illness) until they are able to return to school.
