5th January 2021 – School Closure

Dear Parents and Community,

Following last night’s instruction from the Prime Minister, we have now closed our school for most pupils. We are very sad about this. We know children learn best and are happiest in school. However, the risk of the spread of Covid 19 is currently too high for the safety and wellbeing of our coomunity and we must follow the guidance.

Your child’s class teacher will continue to provide the best learning opportunites possbile through remote learning. All children have Google classroom logins. teachers will provide daily lessons in Literacy, Maths and Topic. Teachers and other school staff will contact you and your child regularly to see how they are and support them with their learning. If your child is struggling to access the learning for any reason, please tell us. We have a limited number of devices that we may be able to provide you with.

If your child is usually provided with a free school meal, we will contact you with information about how you can collect a food hamper from school.

We will remain open for a small number of children whose parents are critical workers and for children requiring addtional support. We are sorry we can’t offer places to more of you. We have to make judgements in line with safety guidance to reduce numbers of pupils in school and staff availability.

It seems very likely this lockdnown will continue throughout this term.

We will keep in touch with you and encourage you to contact us if you think we can help with anything.

We will continue to live our school values of Partnership, Inclusion and Excellence throughout this pandemic.

Best wishes,

Mr Burton

Partial Closure

Dear Parents,

From the 5th January 2021 the school will be partially closed. We will still be open for face to face teaching for some year groups, vulnerable pupils and children of key workers. All other pupils will be provided with remote learning. The reason for the partial closure is because several members of our staff are follwing the National Education Union’s guidance relating to Covid 19.

We realise how disruptive and upsetting this situation is for our children, families, staff and community and will do all we can to support you in this difficult time.

This situation will be under constant review and we will update you straight away if we become aware of any changes.

Best wishes,

Mr Burton

Remote Learning

Dear Parents,

Some pupils have already experienced their classes being closed because of positive cases of Covid 19. When this happens, it can be very disruptive for your child’s learning. We have been teaching children how to access remote learning for when they are not in school. The main way we will deliver remote learning is through Google classrooms. Your child will have a log in and password. Please check with them that they know what they are. We have already started setting weekly homework for children on Google classrooms so they can become familiar with using it.
Teachers will also set learning tasks on Mathletics and on the class blog. If you would like paper packs of worksheets, we can also provide these from the school office.

Covid 19 – High Risk Area

Dear Parents,

Bristol City Council has identified St Paul’s as a high risk area for Covid 19. Our rates of infection are among the highest in the city. Please follow the advice below. There are video translations in different languages available on the links at the bottom of this page.

Key messages from Bristol City Council:

• Please travel to/from school with COVID-19 in mind. It’s advised to avoid public transport so please try and walk/cycle to school if you can, keeping your distance from others, and ensure you wear a face covering when required. Where possible, car sharing with people outside your household or support bubble should be avoided.

• Social distancing guidance inside and outside of school is different. Whilst at school, your child can mix with his/her class bubble, as safety measures are in place. This is necessary in order for us to enable children and young people to continue to attend. However, these measures are not in place outside of school, so please make sure you and your child follow the current government guidance when not in the school building

• Social distancing outside school gates is vital to minimise the spread. Please do not gather or mix when dropping off or collecting your child

• If you or your child develops symptoms of the virus, you/they must not go to school. Stay at home, self-isolate and get tested. Symptoms include a new continuous cough, high temperature or loss or change to your sense of taste and smell

• If you or your child is asked to self-isolate, you/they must not leave the house under any circumstances and your friends and family cannot visit during this time. We understand your frustrations in having to adapt to last minute calls or changes requiring you/your child to self-isolate and thank you for your continued cooperation.

Covid 19 – staying safe

Dear Parents,

Please help us keep our community as safe as possible by following the government guidance for social distancing.

Please only arrive at school at your dedicated arrival and collection times. If you arrive early, you will add to the queue making it less safe for yourself and others.

Please keep at least 2 metres distance from other groups.

In line with the new guidance, please only bring and collect members of your own household.

If you are able to, please wear a face covering when you visit school.

Please help us keep the number of people around our school to a minimum. At collection time, please could just one adult per household come to collect from school.

After collecting your child, please could you continue following the one way system through the outside areas and leave the premises as quickly as possible to help prevent any crowding.

Thank you for your co-operation with these measures.

Mr Burton

Covid 19

Dear Parents,

I am sure you are aware that cases of Covid 19 are rising nationally and in our local community. Please help us all keep safe by following the current guidelines.
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL. PLEASE CALL US AND LET US KNOW IMMEDIATELY

Main symptoms
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

What to do if you have symptoms
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus:

Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible.
You and anyone you live with should stay at home and not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Anyone in your support bubble should also stay at home if you have been in close contact with them since your symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started.

Get a test to check if you have coronavirus on GOV.UK

Black History Month Bristol

Dear Parents,

All this month we have been celebrating Black History Month at Cabot. Our in school them has been about what makes us all special? Your child may have asked you to join in with our work by asking you to share with us your family history and experiences. On Friday we will have a special celebration assembly where children will share with each other the learning we have done across the school.

Celebrating diversity and challenging racism is something we do at Cabot throughout the year. However, during Black History Month, we give extra focus to these issues. We have also been joining in with national campaigns such as last week’s Wear Red Day. Below are some links to resources and activities that are going on across Bristol and the country throughout October.
