Covid 19 Update - 14 Dec 2020

Date: 14/12/2020 FOR PARENTS OF CLOSE CONTACTS OF COVID 19 at St Joseph’s Camberwell Schools’ Federation. Advice for Child to Self-Isolate for 10 Days  Dear Parent, We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school. We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child has been in close contact with the affected person. In line with the national guidance your child must stay at home and self-isolate until 19/12/2020 (10 days after contact). If your child is well at the end of the 10 days period of self-isolation, then they can return to usual activities. Other members of your household can continue normal activities provided your child does not develop symptoms within the 10 day self-isolation period. Please see the link to: Guidance for contacts of people with confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection who do not live with the person https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-contacts-of-people-with-possible-or-confirmed-coronavirus-covid-19-infection-who-do-not-live-with-the-person What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19 If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.  People who do not have symptoms should not request a test unless this has been specifically requested by Public Health England or the local authority. All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’. The 10-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home. If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online. Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community If you are able can, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period Please see the link to the PHE…

This Week at St Josephs  Good afternoon, term is moving along rapidly and we are seeing the children well and truly settled into routines with their teachers. We are also seeing some fantastic work! Unfortunately, we had a report of a positive Covid case for a pupil in Year 6 this week. In these instances we receive guidance from Public Health England and are directed to act in certain ways. As a result, we have had to ask the Year 6 children and some staff to self isolate for 14 days. This is regrettable as I had started to see Year 6 beginning to show really strong behaviours and positive attitudes towards their learning. Work will be placed on the VLE for the children to complete. This Saturday will see the beatification of a young man who was born in London, but grew up in Milan. Carlo Acutis can be an inspiration for all of us, his humility and deep faith led him to do the ordinary things in life in an extraordinary way. You can see a short animation of his life story here. Like everyone, we are not sure what the future holds amidst rumours of another lockdown or potentially a two week half term, no doubt the Government will tell us when they see fit. What I can tell you is that the school are very well prepared to support your children in their learning should we be directed to close whether it is year groups or extended holidays… In the mean time, have a lovely weekend. Mr AndrewInterim Executive Headteacher Early Years and Infant News It has been another wonderful week here in the Infant School. I was lucky enough to see some fantastic maths learning in Year Two this week. I was so impressed when I saw the children counting in tens and then adding ones to find the answer. Amazing work! In Year One, the children are working incredibly hard on their phonics and writing. I have been so impressed with the incredible handwriting I have seen in their English books. The Reception children have definitely settled in to School now, and I was so happy to see them practising their threading and drawing skills to further improve their fine motor development. Our Achievement assemblies take place in class every Monday, and it is a chance for us to celebrate those children who have…

October is celebrated as Black history month we are now into the second week of work in this and a project will be completed after the half term. Injections protecting our children are really important – so many thanks for returning flu jab forms the date of the flu jabs is  8th December. As the Government decide what steps to take to slow the R Rate of Covid 19 we all need to try to keep ourselves safe, so thank you to everyone who is wearing mass onsite and following the school guidance ond procedures – we greatly appreciate it. We are planning for how we would deliver our curriculum in the event of a lockdown.  Fingers crossed, we won’t need it, but it pays to be prepared. So our Virtual learning platform information is coming out today- letter and login in school bag. Please check your children’s bags, because if they are anything like mine, the letters will stay there until I look for them! I’ve seen some fantastic spelling in year 1 and year 2, great use of their phonics and now seeing it in their independent writing. Reception have completed their baseline assessment of the children which will help us support them as they learn over the year. Kindness was a key focus in KS2 this week and it reminds me of the Dalai Lama, when he was asked about what was important in life, he replied, “it is important to be kind whenever possible…it is ALWAYS possible!” Here’s a challenge for the children, when you see me around school next week, what can you tell me about Olaudah Equiano? Early Years and Infant News I have been so proud of the children this week. In Reception the children have worked incredibly hard on their phonics. They have been taking reading books home to practise their sounds, and they have even started to take story books home! In Year One, I have been so impressed with their written work. Full stops and capital letters are being used properly, and the children are starting to read aloud the work they have written. Year Two have been working so hard with their maths work- I have given out so many gold stickers this week! I would like to say a special well done to all the children in the Infant School who are working so hard to stay safe…
