COVID 19

PLEASE SEE OUR LATEST NEWS FOR MOST RECENT SCHOOL UPDATES ON COVID 19

 

   

Coronavirus Update

 

PARENT UPDATE

At St Josephs’ we are obviously monitoring the Covid-19 situation very closely.

We are following all advice from Public Health Wales and Cardiff Council which is being updated daily.

 

TO ENSURE THAT COMMUNICATION METHODS WITH ALL PARENTS ARE UP TO DATE AND IN PLACE COULD YOU PLEASE CHECK THAT THE SCHOOL HAS YOUR CORRECT CONTACT DETAILS.

 

ANY UPDATES WILL BE POSTED ON OUR WEBSITE AND MESSAGES WILL BE SENT THROUGH THE SCHOOL APP.

 

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

 

COVID-19 is a new illness that is caused by a virus called coronavirus.  Parents and carers are naturally worried about this new illness and the implications for their children and families.  These fears have been heightened by speculation and false information shared on some social media platforms.  In writing this statement, I hope to provide reassurance to you.

 

PREVENTING INFECTION

School staff are alert to the risk of infection and are taking measures to help keep children healthy.  At this time, these measures include encouraging children to wash their hands regularly and to cough or sneeze into tissues, disposing of them in a bin thereafter.  All children were reminded of this again at a whole School Assembly yesterday.  

 

The latest posters have been placed around the school for staff, children, parents and visitors. I would encourage parents and carers to reinforce the guidelines of the poster at home and encourage children to wash their hands on leaving for school and on return from school.  

All toilets in the school have soap dispensers for use.  These are checked each day to ensure they are functioning properly.  A significant order for hand sanitiser was placed by the school when Local Authority guidelines were issued, however, due to high demand, we are still awaiting delivery.

 

SCHOOL CLOSURE

There are currently no plans to close the school. However, staff remain alert to the possibility of school closure in the future.  We are currently formulating plans to mitigate the impact of school closure on the continuity of learning for children.  This work will continue behind the scenes as the situation across Cardiff and Wales remains under review.  There is no reason at this stage to keep your child at home.

 

ADVICE FOR STUDENTS

DO

  • wash your hands with soap and water often - do this for at least 20 seconds whilst singing "Happy Birthday" TWICE
  • cover you mouth and nose with a tissue (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
  • If you do not have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow
  • put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands again afterwards

DO NOT

  • do not touch our eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

 

ADVICE FOR PARENTS

Cancellation of all after school clubs

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 and in consultation with the Chair of Governors for the school, I have taken the decision to review non-essential school events such as after school clubs to limit risk to the school community including those who may be more vulnerable.

 

Although after school clubs are an integral part of the school calendar I feel that it is sensible to postpone all after school clubs until further notice. I am sure you will support the school in this matter,.

 

Cofion cynnes,

Alex Riordan
