We are currently running our Hub at Cheriton Bishop 07908 023785
Link Academy Hub Schools are open during the lockdown for children who absolutely need to attend, and this includes vulnerable children.
These schools are: Bearnes in Newton Abbot, Cheriton Bishop, Harbertonford, Landscove, Moretonhampstead and Otterton.
The government has said that if your child has a social worker and
· a child protection plan,
· is a child in need,
· or a child in care;
they are expected to be in school after the Easter bank holiday weekend, so long as they do not have an underlying health condition that puts them at risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19).
Please make arrangements to take your child to school from Tuesday 14 April.
If you do not want your child to go to school, you need to discuss this with your child’s social worker and school and agree the appropriate next steps so that we are all assured that your child is safe.
Your child should not attend school if they, or someone they live with, has either a high temperature or a new, continuous cough.
If your child has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, they must stay at home for 7 days from when their symptoms started.
If someone your child lives with has symptoms, everyone must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days.
Full government guidance for households with possible coronavirus infections is available online.
Please note that although some children with an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) have a social worker, the government guidance is clear that many of them can remain safely at home. Please speak to your social worker if you are concerned.
We pride ourselves on being a warm, close-knit school with high educational expectations and standards. This means we appreciate the varying needs and strengths of all our pupils, helping them to achieve their full potential.
We have a good-size playing field for sports and games, a large playground and a garden, which are utilised throughout the day and for our after school clubs. We also regularly go on trips, including residential activities for our Year 5/6 pupils.
At Tedburn St Mary we are committed to providing every pupil with the best possible educational experience within a safe, nurturing environment. Developing, encouraging and motivating children is at the heart of all we do to ensure our pupils become confident and successful lifelong learners.
Covid 19 – Information for Parents
Devon Public Health have put together a website aimed at residents which brings together all the relevant public links to information about Coronavirus.
The school has been asked to direct parents to this Website as it is makes finding the right national information easier.
The link is on the front page of the DCC website and also here for your information:
Mrs Skinner attended the County show today along with Zara and Josie who received the Prince of Wales Award for all their hard work on the plastic recycling. We hope with the £1000 prize we can build on the work so far and explore other ECO issues across school and into next year.
