23/08/2020 - LATEST Information regarding September 2020
Staff and Governors at Stivichall are hoping that children and families are enjoying the Summer break. We are looking forward to welcoming all children back in September. The school risk assessment and full reopening plan has been approved by Coventry Local Authority and the teaching unions. If anything changes before September 2nd, we will update this information again and also notify parents through the Parent Mail system.
Information Booklet and Face Coverings Latest
The Parent and Carer Information Booklet for return in September (shared initially in July) is available through clicking on the image below - apologies that due to ongoing changes to guidance on face coverings there have been several recent amendments to this area (in red font on P.6). Thank you for your patience and understanding.
The Department for Education and Public Health England have maintained that face coverings are not advised for primary schools and research evidence suggests they are not of benefit to under 11s. Coventry Local Authority does not fall into a high risk category area and their position is that face coverings in primary school are a parent and staff personal choice. If face coverings are worn, this should not generally be in classrooms, only for communal areas and moving around as wearing face masks in class will affect speaking and listening, behaviour and engagement and therefore learning. Putting on and removal of any face covering must be done so following a strict procedure to minimise transmission (outlined in the information booklet).
Timings of the Day
