Daily Routines at Clandon School During Covid-19
School is a bit different at the moment due to Covid-19. Mrs Voller has written a helpful information booklet about what the school, children and their families can all do to keep one another safe. You can open the link below to read the booklet but here are some of the key things you need to know.
We are continuing to use the Bubble School model. Your child will spend most of their time in their class bubble and will not come into contact with children in other classes.
What to wear and what to bring to school
Everyone will spend most of the time outside and hopefully enjoy some good weather. This is because the risk of virus transmission is reduced outdoors. All children must wear their school uniform. They will need their book bag and a warm, waterproof coat. Please limit the amount of equipment or other items your child brings to school.
We ask that children wear a clean set of clothes to school each day that they attend. Wash items in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions, using the warmest water setting and drying items completely.
Your child will need to bring a clearly named water bottle. This will be brought home each day and should be emptied and washed in hot water or put through the dishwasher (if possible). Please refill with fresh water and send every day. We would rather not provide cups as children are more likely to accidentally share these.
During sunny weather please ensure your child has applied sun cream before coming to school. Teachers will not be able to apply sun cream at this time. Please also provide a named sun hat.
Everything your child brings to school must be named, including book bags and items of uniform. It is quicker and easier to reunite named items with their owner and valuable learning time is wasted in class trying to find missing unnamed belongings.
Please use the car park at Clandon Park which is free for school parents. The National Trust has agreed to open this car park as a special favour to the school. If this is abused, they may not allow us access in the future; please respect their generosity.
When to stay at home
Your child must not come to school if you, your child, or anyone in your household has or is showing symptoms of coronavirus, or have tested positive in the last 10 days.
- A new continuous cough,
- and/or fever,
- and/or a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).
Do not send your child to school if you have been in contact with anyone with or who is showing symptoms of coronavirus or who has tested positive for coronavirus.
Do not send your child to school if you are unable or unwilling to follow current government regulations on social distancing.
Do not send your child to school if they are generally unwell, for example with sickness or diarrhoea, and would not normally attend school.
Please call the school office on 01483 222442 to let us know if your child will not be coming to school for any reason.
