COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We have set up this page in order to keep you up to date with the latest advice regarding COVID-19. Globally as a country, and as a school we are approaching the challenge presented by the spread of the virus as proactively as we can.

At Templemoor, as you are aware, we are monitoring the situation carefully and reviewing all updates and information on a daily basis.

We are following guidance from Public Health England (PHE), the Department for Health, the Local Authority and accessing daily bulletins from the Department for Education.

TEMPLEMOOR COVID 19 RISK ASSESSMENT UPDATED 23RD JUNE 2020

RISK ASSESSMENT

We take our safeguarding responsibilities towards every child in our care very seriously.We are committed to maintaining the best education for every child at Templemoor, whilst balancing this with a robust approach to safeguarding the health and welfare of our community and beyond. Please find below our most recently reviewed risk assessment. 

HYGIENE

Although our school remains closed to the majority of pupils, our focus in school with all staff and children remains centred on hygiene, as this is proven to be the most effective way of limiting the spread of germs.

Washing hands with soap and water, for 20 seconds (the same amount of time it takes to sing ‘happy birthday’ twice) remains one of the most important ways of reducing the chance of infection.

Using tissues when coughing and/or sneezing is also essential. PHE have been advising of the importance of correct coughing and sneezing etiquette with the ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’ campaign.

We continue to promote healthy hygiene in the core bubbles – thank you for your support to ensure the same good practice at home.
