Halloween!

Halloween is usually a scarily good time of year for many and we are encouraging you  to celebrate it safely this year to help stop the spread of COVID-19.

Wiltshire is in Tier 1 (medium) under new national rules announced last week. This means that measures such as the rule of six, working from home where possible and 10pm closing for leisure and hospitality sectors remain in force.

Halloween falls on a Saturday this year and it’s likely that people will want to celebrate. In order to tackle the spread of the virus, we are urging you to do Halloween a little differently this year and plan low risk fun activities within your household to protect your family, friends and neighbours as much as possible.

While large gatherings and parties, either indoors or outdoors, are not possible this year there are still plenty of ways to celebrate safely while still having lots of fun. Residents are reminded that traditional Halloween celebrations are likely to spread COVID-19 and should be avoided:

·         Trick or treating where treats are handed out and children go door to door.

·         Crowded costume parties, indoors or outdoors, or any gathering where there are more than six people.

·         Do not substitute your facemask with a Halloween mask as this will not keep you safe.

Current social distancing guidelines still need to be followed during the Halloween festivities:

·         Keep to the rule of six and remember hands, face, space.

·         Maintain physical distance from people you don’t live with. Remember to stay two metres apart.

·         If you’re hosting an activity, it is safer to hold it outdoors.

·         If you have COVID-19, have symptoms of COVID-19, have been in contact with anyone with COVID-19 you must self-isolate. Visit GOV.UK for more information.

COVID Testing

We understand that with the rise in COVID-19 cases, families are keen to keep their children safe whilst protecting the rest of the community. If your child does not have symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature, a new continuous cough a loss/change to their sense of smell/ taste) but has cold-like symptoms, such as a runny nose, they do not need to be tested, they do not need to self-isolate and they can attend school. We shall take great care of them, as always, and if we have any concerns about their well-being, we will not hesitate to call you. If anyone at school becomes unwell with suspected COVID-19, we shall send them home immediately and we can provide Home Testing kits in specified cases.

Safeguarding Statement

 At Manor Fields Primary School, the health, safety and well-being of every child is our top priority. We expect all staff, governors, volunteers and visitors to share this commitment to safeguarding our pupils.

 We listen to our pupils and take seriously what they tell us. All school staff are trained in Child Protection and children are made aware that they can talk to any adult if they have any concerns. Staff are trained to look out for signs of abuse and they are required to report these to the Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL).

The NSPCC have launched a new whistleblowing campaign so please visit our safeguarding pages in the About Us section for more information.

Did you know that O2 offer a free "Parental Control" service to help families to protect their children while they're online? They can enable you to restrict children's web access via their mobile to a limited number of sites which are suitable for children.
