Ark Oval Primary Academy: Our Week 17th Jan - 21st Jan

Sunday 23 January 2022

Principal's Summary

Dear Parents and Carers, 

This week the government will suspend all of its previous restrictions. This change removes the legal obligations as a school to maintain its COVID procedures, such as mask-wearing and social distancing etc. 

However, we remain required to track and report on positive COVID cases. If we reach "outbreak" status, we may be instructed by Public Health England to return to restrictions. It is essential to be aware that although the legal mandate is removed, the recommendation for schools is to maintain their own risk assessed safety measures. 

We will be writing to parents this week regarding the decisions we make as a school to maintain the safety and wellbeing of our staff, children and the wider community.

Apologies for the confusion last week regarding the Principal's Q&A - these will now mesh with the calendar as opposed to when Zoom thinks it should be!
