Willenhall Community Primary School is open to all children and we are continuing to follow government advice.

When should I keep my child off school?

We have produced a guide to inform parents what action should be taken if your child or any member of your household show symptoms of coronavirus. Click here to access this.
 
School nursing have also provided a useful flow chart (School Nursing Covid Flow Chart) to help parents decide what to do if their child is unwell.

Dropping off and collecting children

In order to facilitate social distancing at the start and end of the school day we have made some changes to start and end times for different year groups.  We have also opened up additional entrances, please click here to see the details.

If you do need to come onto the school site please ensure that you leave by the same entrance that you entered.

Dropping off or collecting more than one child

If you have children in different year groups please ensure you do not cut across the school grounds to get to different entrances, you must drop off or collect one child and then walk around the outside of the school site to arrive at the next drop off or collection point.  The staggered start and finish times should help to manage this.

Wearing face masks

NEW GUIDANCE FROM COVENTRY LOCAL AUTHORITY from Monday 14th September parents and carers must wear face masks when they drop off or collect their child from school. 

Please remember that parents and carers have a responsibility to maintain their own social distancing and not use the school gates and surrounding area as a place to gather, as this puts our community at risk.

Contacting Class Teachers

We appreciate that with social distancing measures in place it will be harder to have face-to-face contact with your child’s class teacher.  We believe that having a strong working relationship between you and your child’s class teacher is key to ensuring that your child thrives during their time at Willenhall Primary School and as a result we have set up additional email contacts for you to use to contact your child’s teacher should you have any questions or queries.

COVID-19 Symptoms

If any child develops a new, continuous cough or high temperature, they should stay at home. Parents should follow recommendations outlined in the official government advice. We will contact parents if children present a new continuous cough or high temperature symptoms at school.

Catch it Bin it Kill it

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • 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
