COVID-19

Although many of the COVID-19 related restrictions have lifted, there are still guidelines in place which affect school life.  These are important to ensure the ongoing safety and wellbeing of our staff and pupils.  

These include

  • Testing regularly - we have asked all our staff to test bi-weekly and we encourage Oatlands School families to do the same
  • Having the vaccine
  • Wearing a face-mask in crowded spaces - we are happy for you to wear a mask in school if you wish.  
  • Washing hands regularly - we have maintained our previous handwashing routines in class and encourage visitors to sanitise their hands on arrival.
  • Isolating if you test positive for COVID-19

We also encourage you to visit gov.uk/backtoschool for information and practical guidance about attending school in the current climate. This includes the latest update to the guidance for parents and carers on what you need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges in the autumn term.

Please also review the documents below which outline in more detail how we are continuing to manage COVID-19 in school.
