SIMON HOARE, MP VOLUNTEERS TO HELP TBS C-19 TESTING AND DISCUSSES THE INCREASED COSTS AS A RESULT OF THE PANDEMIC

Simon Hoare, MP, visited TBS recently in order to discuss funding issues, including the extra expenditure incurred as a result of C-19. Whilst in the school, Simon kindly offered to volunteer in the testing area and assisted in the testing of a group of staff and students; he also volunteered to join the testing team when students returned to school on 8 March, which the school immediately accepted.

 

The discussion regarding funding included the need for lost income during the pandemic (such as lettings income) to be reimbursed either in full or part by the government and a greater level of grant support for health and safety measures such as the use of sanitiser school-wide and extra cleaning since March last year. Schools operate as businesses and rely on generating income for the basics, let alone the extras.

 

The Chair of Governors, Mario Roncaglia; Sally Wilson (Headteacher) and Liz Bishopp (Business Manager) were very grateful for his time and his agreement to take their concerns forward in discussions with the Treasury.

URGENT Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter holiday

Dear Parent/Carer

 

Action to take if there is a positive Covid-19 test in your household over the Easter period

The latest Government advice is as follows:  where a student or staff member tests positive for coronavirus having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should NOT be contacted.  Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.

If a student tests positive up to and including Wednesday, 7th April you must contact the school’s emergency number

07857 113728

Please provide the following information:

Name and year group of the student who has tested positive

Date of positive test

Date symptoms developed

Date student was last in school

Names of friends/contacts during school break and lunchtimes

The school will identify and contact families of close contacts during any lessons and tutor periods, and also families of any known social contacts provided by you.

Please leave your own contact details, including email and telephone number.

You do not need to contact the school if a member of your household tests positive, but you should follow the advice of NHS Test and Trace in terms of isolation required within your household.

I would like to thank the entire school community for your support and co-operation during this unusual and difficult half-term.

With best wishes for a restful half-term break,

Sally Wilson

Headteacher
