Keep our community safe
Thank you for supporting the safety measures we have in place at Grafton Primary School. We must all work together to stop the spread of coronavirus, keep each other safe and avoid another lockdown.
Visiting our school site
When dropping your child off, or waiting to pick them up, you must:
- wear a face mask (unless you are exempt from wearing one)
- stay at least 2 metres away from others
Do not send your child to school if:
- they are showing coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms
- someone in their household is showing symptoms
Please also self-isolate yourself and your family for the advised amount of time if you have just returned from a country on the Government’s quarantine list.
Arrange a test only if you or your child develops symptoms and please inform us of the results.
Only send your child to school if they are well enough to attend. If you need help deciding on whether you should send them school or not, contact the school office on 0203 727 5171 or click the link to see the advice given by the NHS
Please note: Advice from the NHS may differ slightly to that of the school.
All visitors to the school are required to wear face masks on the school premises. A letter from the NHS Test and Trace team can also be read below. Finally, a copy of our school risk assessment is attached. This is a working document and we will continue to review policies and procedures on a regular basis. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we re-opening our school.
FACE MASKS AND FACE COVERINGS
New guidelines given by Barking and Dagenham Public Health Authority is that all adult visitors are requested to wear face coverings on the playground, inside the school building and at the school gate. This is due to the rapidly rising numbers of Covid-19 within the Borough.
We are trying to protect the whole school community and want to prevent a community outbreak that will force us to close bubbles or sections of the school.
We thank you for your cooperation in this and your continued support through these difficult and ever-changing times.
