Coronavirus Update

CORONAVIRUS - information regarding the spread of the virus, and its impact on our school (updated October 09 2020) 

This page will be updated regularly with information regarding the spread of coronavirus, and its impact on our school.

St Oswald's is now fully open from for all children. 

For urgent out of hours (weekday evenings and weekends) communication regarding Coronavirus symptoms or test results parents can email covid-19@stoswald-moll.cheshire.sch.uk This email is regularly monitored out of school hours. 

We are focusing on the importance of adults social distancing. As such the following is now in place:

  • Staggered pick up times. 3:15pm for children with no siblings, 3:25pm for children with siblings. This is to reduce adult numbers on the site. Parents must observe these protocols.
  • Only 1 adult to enter the site to collect children please.   
  • We are now requesting that all parents and visitors wear a face covering when coming onto the school site unless you have an exemption.
  • Video conferencing for Staff and Governing Body meetings/communications.

Instruction on protocols around school can be found HERE. Please note this is NOT guidance and MUST be followed.

In line with Government and Local Authority guidance and advice, we have put a number of measures in place in order to reduce risk to our community. We are all embarking on new territory as we welcome larger groups of children and staff into school and will keep our arrangements under constant review.

The Church of England has provided this prayer for people to say in this challenging time. It may be of use to you.

Keep us, good Lord,
under the shadow of your mercy.
Sustain and support the anxious,
be with those who care for the sick,
and lift up all who are brought low;
that we may find comfort
knowing that nothing can separate us from your love
in Christ Jesus our Lord,
