COVID-19 Update

We’d like to reassure you that at Sir Francis Hill we are continuing to take all of the necessary steps to protect our community and are continuing to follow official guidance from the Department for Education (DfE), UKHSA and Public Health Lincolnshire. 

 

What’s the current situation?

  • We are following guidance from various agencies in order to continue to keep our school community safe. 
  • From the 7th of March, a new Risk Assessment is in place - this has been written by our Senior Leadership Team and considered by the staff and Governors, and takes into account the guidance from the DfE: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/actions-for-schools-during-the-coronavirus-outbreak/schools-covid-19-operational-guidance. 
  • The easing of restrictions means that there is no longer a legal requirement to isolate, however, we are requesting that staff and children who test positive do not attend school for 5 days following a positive test. 

 

What we’re doing to protect and support pupils and staff in school

  • Children and staff continue to be encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly at regular points during the day. We have hand sanitiser pumps in various places in school. We also have outdoor sinks with hot running water. 
  • Regular and thorough cleaning of the premises. 
  • We have clear guidance on what we will do if we suspect a child or member of staff has COVID19 as they are displaying symptoms. This can be found in our Risk Assessment.
  • The Risk Assessment is monitored regularly for any concerns raised by staff – these concerns are then addressed.

 

What we need you to do

  • If you’ve recently changed your contact details, please inform the school office immediately with the updated details by calling 01522 520359 or emailing admin@sir-francis-hill.lincs.sch.uk
  • Your child should attend school unless they feel unwell – if your child has any of the following symptoms, they need to isolate at home: 
  • a high temperature – this means they feel hot to touch on their chest or back 
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if they usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means they have noticed they cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

If your child has any of the above symptoms, they need to be taken for a PCR test: information on how to book can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test (please do not rely on a LFD test)

  • If your child is unwell with COVID symptoms, report this as you would normally by calling the school office first thing in the morning. 
  • We’ll keep you up to date with any changes to the current situation - please make sure that you read all letters that we send. 

  

If you have any questions

Please consult the:

  • School. Call 01522 520359 or email on admin@sir-francis-hill.lincs.sch.uk  
  • NHS, if you want to know more about the symptoms of COVID19 Coronavirus. If you think you or your child may have the symptoms, use NHS 111 online if at all possible before calling 111.

 

As ever, thank you for your continued support. We are very proud of the way in which our children have shown true resilience throughout this and you, as parents, have played the biggest part in this.

 

Sir Francis Hill
