Roberts Primary School
Dear Parents and Carers,
I think I spoke too soon, when I said that my previous letter would probably be last one before half term!
I received information last night from the Local Authority to say that, as a school, we need to be available over the weekend to send information to Public Health England to notify them of any positive cases of COVID-19 and to support with track and trace.
It is therefore important that any member of staff or pupil who tests positive for COVID-19 over the weekend should contact school immediately to inform us.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of who tested positive and the date of the positive test.
After seeking advice from Public Health England, I will then ensure that all the children who have been in contact with that person are notified so that they can then isolate for the relevant amount of time. From my understanding of the information anyone testing positive after 48 hours of leaving school, i.e. Monday onwards, does not pose a risk to other pupils. We would still welcome you informing us of positive cases should they arise from Monday onwards too.
Once again, I wish you a lovely restful half term break.
Key recent information for you:
Welcome to our website which we hope you will find helpful and informative. Please contact the school if you need more information.
"Lighting the Way to Success"
At Roberts Primary School we want every child to achieve their full potential, to be happy and to develop a wide range of skills to equip them for their future lives. We believe that everyone can be successful in some way. We offer every child the chance to learn in an exciting and creative environment and to experience a caring, personalised education, and are encouraged and supported to achieve the very best that they can. We extend to each child a wide range of out of school active learning opportunities which may enrich their school days and help them to develop tolerance and self discipline. We are committed to working in partnership with parents and other agencies to enable everyone to live a full and healthy life and to make a positive contribution to our community.
Through the National Curriculum and work of the school we aim to:
- encourage the children to develop positive attitudes to learning and to achieve high standards of success;
- provide equality of opportunity for all children and staff;
- foster close co-operation between the school, home and wider community;
- help children to acquire a set of moral and spiritual values and develop habits of self-discipline and acceptable behaviour;
- help children to understand the world in which they live and so become caring, reliable and responsible members of society.
At Roberts Primary School, we believe that to be successful learners children need to be able to:
- work in partnership with others;
- solve problems;
- become a good role model in society;
- think for their selves and make their own decisions.
In order to be able to do these things successfully, children at Roberts need to live and learn 7 learning behaviours:
- Respect; looking out for each other and our environment.
- Cooperation; working together.
- Reasoning; being able to work things out.
- Communication; explain their thinking to others.
- Resilience; not giving up when the going gets tough.
- Curious; asking questions and investigating further.
- Reflect; thinking about and learning from successes and failures.
