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.

Coronavirus COVID 19

Dear Parents,

Thank you for working with us to keep our school as safe as possible.

You will have heard that cases of Coronavirus are rising locally and nationally. If you, your child or anyone in your household has any of the main three symptoms, your whole household must self-isolate. Anyone with any of the main Covid 19 symptoms must get a test.

If your child has been tested for Covid 19, we look forward to welcoming them back after they have received a negative result, so long as no one else in your household has symptoms. If your child or anyone in your household has a positive Covid 19 result, please inform us straight away.

Best wishes,

Mr Burton

Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms
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.

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.
Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.

Arrivals and Collections

Dear Parents,

Thank you for all your support with helping keep our school as Covid safe and secure as possible. The arrival and collection processes have worked well. We would now like to try and get children in a little earlier and leave a little later. You will receive a text message with a new arrival and collection time. Please come at the times you are given to keep queues and crowds of people as small as possible. If there is a queue of people at the gate when you arrive, please use the markings to help you keep socially distanced from other family groups. We will continue to ask you to say goodbye to your child on arrival at the school gate in the morning. At the end of the day, please use the one way system to collect your child from their classes. I realise this means you are unable to have those very important check in conversations with class teachers. Teachers will call you if there are any issues to discuss with you. They have also begun to use the text message service. Please look out for text messages straight from your child’s teacher. If you would like to discuss anything with your child’s teacher, please call the office on 0117 3772630 to book a telephone appointment.

Our Local Community Foodshare

Dear Families,

Please see the information and link below about a Community Food Share project that will run throughout the school Summer holiday.

https://www.bristolcommunityfoodshare.com/

Helping local families in a troubling time.

The Community Food Share was set up as a small scale project in response to the difficulties faced by many in our neighbourhood.

It provides food essentials to local families from donations in the local area. Essentially it is about uniting our community and being able to share what’s on our tables.

COVID-19 has brought disruption and uncertainty to family life. St Barnabas school saw that the Community Food Share needed to be made more widely available to all those in connection with the school in this tricky time and have made this project a reality. We now want to go one step further.

Our aim is to continue the amazing work St Barnabas has done and bring the food share to more families in the area.
