Dear Parents/Carers

COVID update

As you will be aware, sadly this week we have had to close one of our bubbles due to COVID. This serves to remind us all of the importance of remaining vigilant.  If your son/daughter or someone in your household has symptoms of COVID19 the family should isolate immediately and seek a PCR test (a test at a test centre).

If anyone in your household tests positive on a LFD – Lateral Flow Test you should also isolate immediately and book a PCR test which should be taken within 48 hours of the LFD test. If a PCR test returns a negative result you will no longer need to isolate. In the event of a LFD test returning a positive result – if a PCR test is not taken within 48 hours it is assumed that the LFD test is accurate.

Forms are now going out to children on our waiting list for the coming nursery admission.  If you are aware of other children who will be 3 years old before Easter 22 and have not yet contacted us for a place, please let them know to do so as soon as possible, as places are going quickly.
