Updates to Lockdown from Monday
Good morning everyone, hope this finds you well.
It has been brilliant welcoming back all your young men to the building and they have settled in really well.
You may have seen on the news last night that from Monday, there will be changes to the current lockdown.
The Prime Minister is to discuss the changes in depth later today but in short, from Monday:
- Social gatherings of more than 6 people in England will not be allowed in law
- The new rule applies to private homes, indoors and outdoors, bars, cafes etc
- The rule does not apply to schools, workplaces,weddings, funerals or organised team sports
- People who ignore the police and do not comply will be find £100 which will be doubled with each offence reaching a maximum of £3,200
Whilst we have all begun to enjoy more freedom, this is an important step that we all have to follow in order to prevent a return of the stricter lockdown processes that we have already seen.
We will maintain our hygiene protocols and follow our Risk Assessment - which is revised every Friday to ensure that whilst your children and the staff are in school, we are maintaining as safe an environment as possible.
It is important to remember that if you or your family are demonstrating any symptoms that you do not send your super hero to school, but book a test and then confirm with school if you are positive or not. By doing this, we are able to keep the school open.
If you need any further information or want to discuss, then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
Have a great day!
