Update 19.03.2021

Dear Parents/Carers,


We spend a lot of time looking at what is going on locally and it was really heartening to see that the Covid case figures for Telford and Wrekin are the lowest in the West Midlands. The data fall recorded for over the last month has been significant and we really do hope this fall will mean that the probability of more cases in our school is massively reduced.


Recently we invited the Health Protection Hub into school to see if they could spot any further actions we could take to reduce risk. They believe we are doing all we can do, when considering the number of children we have and the space we have to put them. Nonetheless, we are constantly reviewing what we do and tweaking the way we do things to reduce risk even further.


We are sending any children home who are complaining of any illness and recommending they get tested. In order to safeguard even further, this may mean their siblings are sent home too, until we are sure they are all Covid free.


It is really difficult to identify where the virus is picked up from. Often I hear infected people say, ‘I’ve only been to the supermarket or out on walks’. Supermarkets are known to be a place where the infection can be picked up from trollies, baskets and card machines. Your place of work is clearly another hot spot – anywhere infact where there is mixing of people from different households. We really are trying so hard to keep it out of Newdale. As I have said, staff test twice, sometimes three times a week to ensure they are clear.


Please help us by keeping your child off if they are poorly and being extra careful when you are out and about.


The school email account, Facebook account and school mobile (07765147868) are all manned over the evenings and weekends. If you have a query or need to report a positive case use these contacts and let the Health Protection Hub know straight away please.


Fingers crossed we have seen the back of this horrible virus.


Kind regards


Miss Cook


Newdale Primary School and Nursery
