Dear parents and carers,
We are excited to be welcoming all of the children back to school on Monday 8th March. We have missed them and we know how important it is for them to be back with their teachers and friends and to enjoy the routine that school brings.
As I mentioned in my previous update, very little has changed from the arrangements that were in place during the Autumn term, with a quick summary of the key changes being:
Primary aged children will not be expected to wear masks in school
Staff will continue to wear face masks in communal areas and at certain other times, for example, when social distancing cannot be maintained.
Primary aged children will not be tested for Covid-19 in school.
Staff are tested using rapid lateral flow Covid-19 tests twice a week
Family members of school aged children are eligible to book a rapid lateral flow Covid-19 test here: devon.cc/testing
