Teachers are compiling additonal  learning packs which will be posted to families this week. As you will understand we are working as fast as we can to adapt to the evolving situation. We hope to formulate plans and provide further information to you by the end of this week (including access to further learning materials).

Dear Parent/Carer,

I wanted to update you on the adjustments we are making at the school in the light of advice and guidance we are receiving from Essex County Council and Public Health England.

It is important to note is that many of our children can become fearful and anxious so as adults our responsibility is to calm those concerns and to help keep things in perspective. 

Put simply, children need to regularly and thoroughly wash their hands and if they do cough, sneeze or blow their noses they need to do it into a tissue and immediately dispose of it.

At school, we have established routines of handwashing. Children will wash their hands at the beginning and end of the day and at the beginning of break and lunch.

Generally, our pupils will be using liquid soap and employing the 20 second rule. We do have a number of hand sanitisers in use but primarliy use soap as this is recognosed to be more effective.  Alcohol based hand santizer is provided for all visitors to our school on entry and exit.We will continue to look at our systems and routines to see if we need to add to or change anything further.

The most recent advice is for people who have any one of the symptoms (high temperature, new cough or sore throat) is that they now need to self-isolate for a period of 14 days. Any child reporting these symptoms during the school day will need to be collected by a parent/carer or known family member at the earliest opportunity. For specific guidance please click here. A key symptom to look for is a high temperature/fever. If in doubt then please contact medical professionals on 111 – do not go to your GP or hospital.  If you have a more general question then please feel free to contact the school office on 02085026442.

We will now be cancelling any school trips or off site after school activities has been organised as a measure in response to the guidance released today by the Government. 

As yet, there is no suggestion that Wells Park School should be closed; however, this situation may change very quickly. It is important to note that there are currently no confimred cases of coronavirus associated to Wells Park.

Although we hope it won’t be necessary, in preparation for the possibility of having to support your children’s learning remotely we have subscribed to a comprehensive package of e-learning materials that your child will be able to access on a tablet, pc or laptop.

The disruption any school closure would cause is significant and will only be taken following national and local guidance if the situation changes. When we are communicating with all our families the easiest way is via our School Ping app so please ensure we have your most up to date mobile phone number and email address. 

A calm and measured approach with good communication is the way forward and Wells Park is well prepared for any necessary action.

Best wishes

Matthew Surman
