Covid-19 Updates for Parents/Carers

This page is dedicated to all communication to parents/carers related to Covid-19. It contains information and all the letters that have been sent out during this time.

There are important actions that children and young people, their parents and those who work with them can take during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, to help prevent the spread of the virus.

In all school settings, preventing the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19) involves dealing with direct transmission (for instance, when in close contact with those sneezing and coughing) and indirect transmission (via touching contaminated surfaces). These include:

  • ensuring that those who have coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, or who have someone in their household who does, do not attend school
  • cleaning hands more often than usual - wash hands thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly or use alcohol hand rub or sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered
  • ensuring good respiratory hygiene by promoting the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach
  • WEAR A FACE COVERING inside the building (from 2/11/20 this is required)

Notice for Visitors

When possible, alternative arrangements will be made to minimise the number of visitors on the school site.  Visitors, including parents, will not be permitted on the school site without an appointment.  Please call reception to make an appointment before coming to the school.  Visitors to the site are required to wear face coverings. All visitors should use the hand sanitiser provided upon entering and leaving the building.

People who are fully vaccinated, or young people aged between 5 and 18 years and 6 months, identified as a close contact of someone with COVID-19, should take an LFD test every day for seven days and continue to attend their setting as normal, unless they have a positive test result or develop symptoms at any time.

At Capital City, teachers are doing everything they can to continue to teach our students. Many online lessons are now delivered live - please see the timetable below.

We also know how important reading is to support students’ learning, opening new horizons and empowering them. Most importantly, we know how enjoyable reading books can be and how we can learn about whole new worlds and experiences through them. During the school closure, we are expecting students to access a whole variety of books and we urge you, parents and carers, to encourage your children to do so.
