Following the Prime Minister's announcement that Plan B will end with effect from Thursday 27th January 2022, I am writing to let you know that we will start to 'open up' school slowly and cautiously.  Further information is in the attached letter.

Covid Flow Chart 17 January 2022

This is the new Covid-19 advice, effective from today, 11 January 2022.  We have put it in a flowchart format to help you follow the new guidance.  We hope you find it helpful.  

Please note that the school does not have LFD tests for the children.  Parents can obtain these through the pharmacy collect system or postal route.  You can find your closest participating pharmacy by visiting Find where to get rapid lateral flow tests - NHS ( Alternatively, you can order online through the postal route by going to Order coronavirus (COVID-19) rapid lateral flow tests - GOV.UK (

Warn and Inform Letter - 22 November 2021

Following a number of new cases in school, I have spoken to the DfE advice line and they have asked that the school sends this letter to all parents 

Covid-19 dfe letter

The Local Authority (LA) has asked us to share their poster with you. 

In school, we are seeing a slight rise in positive cases but we are still below the 'threshold boundary'. However, from today we have re-introduced bubbles for break and lunchtime play. 

Parents/carers are asked to support the LA and the school's request for face masks to be worn by all parents, unless exempt, at morning drop off and after school pick up. 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Baron

Updated Risk Assessment - 1 November 2021

St Peter's COVID Risk Assessment Nov 2021 V2


Due to rising Covid-19 cases, all schools in the South West have been issued a letter recommending that 
school invoke a precautionary and sensible set of measures to keep all pupils and parents in their community safe. This is for the first 2 weeks after half term and revised in line with further guidance.
At St. Peter’s we will:
  • re-introduce the wearing of face coverings, unless exempt, by all parents/adults coming on to the school site and all parents to observe good social distancing measures whilst waiting for chidren
  • return to virtual Acts of Worship and celebration assemblies (parents will not attend)
  • re-introduce the eating of school dinners/lunches in the classrooms for KS2
  • ask parents to contact the office via email or phone
We have also been asked to let you know the following:
Household siblings (secondary school age) of confirmed cases are advised to take daily LFD tests while 
awaiting their PCR test results and to continue to attend school (unless test is positive). This is also advised for primary school aged children but is at the discretion of the parent/guardian.
Given high prevalence it is appropriate to recommend daily LFD testing for all close contacts identified by 
NHS Test & Trace whilst individuals await their PCR results.

Please find below version 2 of the school's Outbreak Management Plan.  The school will follow this plan should there be an outbreak of coronavirus in school or in the region.  We will inform you if we need to put this plan in action. 

School Outbreak Management Plan v2 Sept 2021

Dear Father,
We place ourselves in your presence as we remember in prayer all those who have died from coronavirus.
May you grant them eternal rest, may your light shine upon them and may they rest in peace.
We also pray for their families who are grieving at this time.
We ask that you bring them comfort, healing and strength.
Give them your hope and help them to face every day with you by their side. 
Calm their fears, hold them in your love and surround them with your peace.
