WHAT IS THE CURRENT SITUATION
The school is currently open to vulnerable students and those whose parents are Key Workers.
The area is currently in Lockdown.
HOW ARE WE TRYING TO KEEP THE SCHOOL SAFE
We are following Government and Public Health England instructions especially our emphasis that everybody has a responsibility to wash their hands regularly and practise good respiratory hygiene.
On arrival all students and staff will use hand sanitiser and have their temperature taken.
Students and staff in school are to follow social distancing guidelines at all times. We expect students to wear masks in corridors and on the stairs and we highly recommend that they wear them in all communal areas including classrooms.
Cleaning products will be available in all classrooms if needed, our Caretaker will provide additional cleaning of high-profile contact points.
catch up premium
Following the 2020 lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, schools have received an additional amount of money to provide catch-up support for those pupils that require it. At Rowhill School, in order to utilise this additional funding in the best possible way, we have considered closely the research and advice put forward by the Department for Education (DFE) and the Education Endowment Fund (EEF) and used timely assessments of both pupils’ academic and personal development needs to inform our decisions. The table below outlines our intentional spend with a rationale accompanying each decision.
what actions can i take to keep my family safe
- Wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
- Ensure that you stay at least 1 metre apart from anyone outside of your household
- Wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds
- Always wash your hands when you get home or into work
- Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterwards
- If you are feeling unwell, get a test
