Coronavirus – St Ignatius’ Risk Assessment
We are sharing our coronavirus risk assessment with the school community:
The symptoms are usually:
- a new, continuous cough
- a high temperature (37.8C plus)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
If your child shows symptoms at school, you must come and collect them immediately.
To keep our community’s risk as low as possible, we are asking all children to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soapy water:
When they come into school in the morning
At the start of playtime
At the start of lunchtime
At the end of the day
We are also having windows open to ensure airflow is maximised, and this will make the classrooms cooler.
Local COVID-19 Testing Information
