Coronavirus Update

CORONAVIRUS - information regarding the spread of the virus, and its impact on our school (updated January 14 2021) 

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

We are now in national lockdown.

St Oswald's remains open for vulnerable children and children of key workers only. However the guidance from the Government is clear that if critical workers CAN keep their children at home they should.  

Remote learning is being provided for ALL children. The same learning is provided whether children are learning in school or at home.   

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. 

All adults must demonstrate social distancing when on site at all times.

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

A Government leaflet on safely returning to school can be read HERE.

A quick guide for parents on the actions to take if your child has COVID-19 symptoms can be read HERE.

NHS information on identifying symptoms can be found HERE.

Please also take note of the documentation at the foot of this page. 

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.

Guidance for the full opening of schools in September has now been released by the Government. You can read it here.

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,
