Well that is the first month of 2022 complete and we enter February and near the end of the first half term.
We have managed to get most things completed during the month of January, including Assertive Mentoring, class assemblies and after school clubs.
Something that has come to my attention recently has been the way that some parents have approached issues in school. Recently, there have been a few incidents where adults in school have been spoken to in an inappropriate way - shouted at, aggressive tones and even threats regarding school etc. I want to put it out there that we do not tolerate this sort of behaviour at Choppington Primary School and when I am made aware of it I will be asking for a discussion with the parents and carers in question. We believe in treating everyone with respect and this is the messages that we teach the children. I expect that you will treat us with the respect that we treat you and your children.
If you have an issue to discuss regarding this or any other matter then do not hesitate to contact me.
Hopefully the rest of this academic year will continue uninterrupted and we can continue with school life as normal and begin to invite you all in to share your children's success and learning further.
Mr D. Nelson
A reminder regarding the process.
If your child tests positive for Covid-19 they are to self isolate for 5 days. If on day 5 and 6 they have a negative LFT then thay are allowed back in to school. We will need to see evidence of the LFT test please.
If a member of your household tests positive for Covid-19 then we ask that you LFT your children every day for 5 days. If they are negative they are allowed in school as normal - again we would like to see proof of the LFTs please.
If your child is feeling poorly as a precaution we would advise you to carry out an LFT on them.
We are aware that this could be an inconvenience but we need to continue to follow the guidelines to ensure we keep everyone connected with school safe.
Official guidelines can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/covid-19-coronavirus-restrictions-what-you-can-and-cannot-do
