Information for Parents: Covid-19

This page is a regularly updated one stop shop for information regarding actions being taken by school in light of Covid-19. We hope this will help communication to be clear and helpful. If there is anything you are unsure of after reading this page please contact the office on 01135351000 or office@shakespeareleeds.org.uk

We would like to thank all our families for the support you have shown school in these uncertain times. We will continue to work with the health and wellbeing of your children at the forefront of our minds. In line with DfE expectations, school is now open to all children in all year groups. There are a wide range of adjustments and changes to how the school will run. All of the measures put in place are to minimise the risk of spreading the virus whilst ensuring a high quality education is offered to children. The key systems of control to consider at all times as identified by the DfE and PHE are:

  1. Minimise contact between individuals and maintain social distancing wherever possible
  2. Clean hands thoroughly more often than usual as well as before and after handling shared resources
  3. Ensure ventilation of fresh air is maximised
  4. Good respiratory hygiene: ‘Catch it-bin it-kill it’
  5. Enhanced cleaning of frequently touched surfaces
