POSITIVE COVID-19 TEST RESULT - AFFECTING BADGERS CLASS ONLY

Message from Gill Knox - Headteacher

I would like to inform our Parents/Carers that we have been notified this morning of a positive Covid-19 test result in our Badgers class.  We have immediately closed the class bubble and would like to reassure all Parents/Carers that we have a robust risk assessment in place.

No children outside the Badgers class are affected and they should continue to attend school as normal.

If you have any concerns or queries, please can I ask you to discuss them directly with us at school as I am aware there is already widespread speculation on social media sites which contains inaccurate information.

Thank you for your support as we continue to work hard to ensure the safety of all Haughton children and staff.

We have been informed by Telford & Wrekin that some Parents/Carers of our current year 6 children have not yet applied for transport to Southall School.

The council is planning for the scenario that children and young people will return to their educational settings in September – although this will be officially confirmed.

New travel assistance policies are in place and both these and the place to apply can be found at:

Hello Parents/Carers,

I just wanted to catch up with you all following Boris Johnson’s announcement yesterday where he stated his hope to have Reception, Year 1 and Year 6 children return to school on June 1st. There will be more detailed guidance shared today and I will be having meetings over the next few days with the Local Authority SEND and Health & Safety teams as well as working closely with our colleagues in other local special schools.

As always, we want to support the community and in particular our children and their families as much as we can, however we also have a duty to ensure that school is as safe as it can be for both children and staff. I am sure you are aware of the difficulties of social distancing with all our children but in particular the younger ones.

For the next couple of weeks there is no change in the current arrangements. Thank you for your support in continuing to keep your children at home where you can.

I will do my best to ensure that I provide you with up to date information and developments as soon as practically possible.

Many thanks for working so closely with us.


Gill Knox

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome from the Headteacher

At Haughton School we strive to help each child develop their academic, social and practical abilities to their highest level. To help each child achieve self-confidence, initiative and independence. We achieve this through a school community based on caring, sharing and learning. With relationships between children, parents, governors and school staff based on mutual trust and respect.


Gill Knox
