Kestrel Mead response to COVID-19

After a turbulent 2 years, we are proud of the collaborative approach we have had with our community to ensure that all children at Kestrel Mead accessed high quality education and wider family care.

Whilst school has now returned, COVID is still having an impact on attendance and measures that we have in place at school.

The latest version of our Risk Assessment can be on the tab below: COVID advice.

If a child in school has symptoms of COVID, or tests positive parents are asked to email [email protected] and remain at home.

We have an outbreak management plan, that may result in additional safety measures being temporarily put around a class where several cases have been reported. We work closely with TMET and PHE when this is the case. The outbreak management plan is reviewed regularly and measures lifted as soon as possible to minimize disruption to children’s educational experience.

If you, or your family, are feeling the impact of COVID financially or emotionally Alison Moss our Family Support Worker is here for a conversation. Please drop her a message on Class Dojo or call the office to arrange a call back.
