Newsletter 25th February 2021

Joseph’s Camberwell Newsletter                                                                                                                 Thursday 25th February 2021 Dear Parents/Carers, Welcome back to a new half term. I hope you and your families are all keeping safe and well. I want to thank you all for your continued support this term with ‘home learning’ and everything that you have done to support the school, the local community and the wider community by following the guidance to stay at home to try and prevent the spread of coronavirus. It seems unthinkable that the lockdowns have continued for as long as they have and that children have had two lengthy periods of time away from school. I am sure that we are all praying that there will be no more lockdowns and that the children can return to school and stay at school from 8th March 2021 onwards. I know that all the staff are looking forward to having all of the children back in school with their friends, learning together. You will receive further guidance in a letter next week, detailing how we plan to reopen fully on the 8th March.   As we enter into this special season of Lent, we are reminded that it is a time for spiritual growth. The Church invites us to be introspective, and to prepare for the celebration of Christ’s Paschal Mystery with prayer, fasting and almsgiving. It can be challenging for children to give alms, so we want to encourage them to practice giving in a way that provides both an opportunity for sacrifice as well as generosity. The children are invited to practice being good stewards of their possessions by going through their things and setting aside those clothes, toys, etc. that they have grown out of, or no longer use. It demonstrates gratitude for God’s gifts, and passes those gifts on to others. Parents in discussion with the child determine who the recipient(s) should be. You might want to pass things along to the child’s younger siblings, cousins, neighbours etc.   We are planning to hold a virtual parents meeting next week, before all the children return to school on the 8th March. This will give you an opportunity to meet the your child’s class teacher, share any worries or anxieties you think your child may have with regards to returning to school and for the teacher to give a brief overview of what learning will take place on their return.…

Covid 19 Update - 14 Dec 2020

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 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 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…
