Tatworth Primary School always acts in the best interests of the children and staff. We will continue to adhere to advice received from Government, Public Health England, Somerset County Council, and other relevant agencies. Our website will be updated as and when the situation should change.  Letters/information sent home may be accessed following the links below.

We have undertaken an extensive risk assessment which has been updated (February 2022) and may be accessed by clicking here.

Procedures have been agreed should anyone in school show signs that they may have COVID-19.  Please click here to access the procedures.

From 1 April 2022, schools have been advised to acknowledge that COVID-19 is one of a number of different respiratory illnesses and that we should review our practices accordingly, so that we move forward living safely with COVID-19 as we do with other illnesses.

Staff and children should not attend school if they are poorly.  A child who is unwell with a high temperature should stay at home until they are well enough to return.  The guidance for any child who has tested positive for COVID-19 is that they should not attend school for 3 days, but remain off longer if they continue to have a high temperature.

Guidance continues to ask schools to maintain good ventilation, use good hygiene practices including additional cleaning and to ask all children and adults to regularly wash hands or sanitise.  Advice remains that face coverings should be worn in a crowded places, but that they are not necessary during learning times in classrooms.
