COVID-19

COVID UPDATE MAY 2022

Following updated guidance from the Department for Education we can confirm the following changes to school procedures.

The legal requirement to self-isolate has been removed.

When children and young people with symptoms should stay at home and when they can return to education:

Children and young people with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend their education setting.

Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They can go back to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend.

Children and young people aged 18 years and under who have a positive test result:

It is not recommended that children and young people are tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional.

If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test, if they can. After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, the risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.

Children and young people who usually go to school, college or childcare and who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19

Do:

  • Reduce the time spent in crowded areas where it may be difficult to social distance
  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
  • clean surfaces often, paying particular attention to surfaces touched often (e.g. light switches or electronic devises)
  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze. Dispose of tissues into a rubbish bag immediately and wash your hands.
  • wear a face covering in indoor spaces where social distancing may be difficult.
  • Keep indoor spaces as well ventilated as possible – let the fresh air in, even if for a short period a day.

Curriculum

Please select the appropriate Stage below...

EYFS

Reception Year Curriculum - Early Years Foundation Stage 

The Reception year is where children start their learning journey at Stroud Valley Community Primary School. Some will know each other from nursery, play groups or local childminders, others will find it all new, exciting and maybe a little scary, but by the end of the first term they will all have made lots of new friends and become used to our school’s routines and expectations. 

Four guiding principles shape what we do. These are:  

• every child is a unique child, who is constantly learning and can be resilient, capable, confident and self-assured  

• children learn to be strong and independent through positive relationships  

• children learn and develop well in enabling environments, in which their experiences respond to their individual needs and there is a strong partnership between practitioners and parents and/or carers  

• children develop and learn in different ways and at different rates.
