Coronavirus Information & Support
Welcome to the section of our website where you can find links, videos and documents to help support your child and family during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
Here at Overleigh, we have taken extra steps to ensure the safety of children and staff is at the forefront of what we do. Children are working within their year group bubbles and also have their lunch in this way to try and prevent any possible tranmissions between children and staff in the hope to reduce the amount of bubbles needing to isolate in the event of a positive result. If you have nay concerns or questions regarding this please talk to your child's class teacher in the first instance.
We will continue to inform you of any changes via Parentmail, the Newsletter or on this page.
We appreciate that this is an ever changing situation and to reflect this, this page will be updated regularly.
What to do if your child is unwell
If you or your child is unwell and shows symptoms for Covid-19 you must follow the Government advice and self-isolate. Please notify school immediately if anyone in your household has symptoms. This will enable us to carry out our contract tracing without delay, in order to try and prevent or reduce the amount of any possible transmissions. If you or your child are displaying the symptoms listed on the NHS website then you are eligible to request a test through the gov.uk website. Please notify school of the test result, even if this is negative. You can contact school via the main office or on our dedicated email account: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your communication and participation is much appreciated as we work together during this difficult period.
