What steps are we taking?

At Rainbow Primary School, we are carrying out the following steps to minimise the risk and spread of Coronavirus.

These include:

  • Advice and guidance issued by the Department of Education and Public Health England are reviewed daily by our Head of School, CEO and SLT team. These updates are then used to help us develop and inform our contingency plans.
  • We have strengthened our daily cleaning routines and placed an increased focus on the cleaning of classrooms and toilets.
  • Each classroom has been provided with hand sanitiser which is used regularly throughout the day.
  • Each classroom has been provided with anti-bacterial wipes allowing tables to be wiped down in-between learning sessions.
  • Toilets are cleaned daily and hand soap is constantly being topped up.
  • Extra time is given to the children each day to wash their hands especially before and after lunch. They are supervised in doing this to ensure this task is complete properly.
  • Whole School assemblies are now taking place in classrooms.
  • Planned events and meetings for staff in school have been rescheduled to reduce the number of people visiting and passing through school.
  • Only 3 parents at one time are allowed in the School reception area to reduce number of passing through schools.
  • School trips have been postponed for now.
  • Learning packs for each year group have been prepared.
  • The website has been updated with Home Learning Resources.
  • We are keeping in touch with parents/carer through our school webpage, twitter and parent mail.

We hope this information provides you with an update, but this is an ever-evolving situation and one that we are reviewing daily. Please be reassured that we will continue to make decisions that are in the best interests of the whole school community and in-line with guidance provided by the Department of Education and Public Health England.
