Advice for Schools
COVID-19 Visitor Guidelines
ALL VISITORS TO SCHOOL WILL BE REQUIRED TO COMPLETE AN EXTERNAL VISITOR TO SCHOOL SITE FORM PRIOR/ON ENTRY TO SCHOOL.
Blakehill Primary School is asking for the support and understanding of our visitors in helping us minimise the risk of COVID-19.
Blakehill continues to take guidance from Public Health England and the Department for Education. Considering this, we are now limiting access to the site to essential visitors only. If you are unsure as to whether your proposed visit is essential, please contact the School Office (telephone 01274 414355 or email firstname.lastname@example.org)
If your visit to Blakehill is an essential one, we would nevertheless ask that you refrain from visiting if:
- You have travelled from or transited through any of the countries or areas that are currently in lockdown or on the government quarantine list in the past 14 days.
- You have developed a fever (above 37.8C), a new, continuous cough or have lost your sense of taste or smell within the last seven days.
- Anyone in your household is required to self-isolate in accordance with Government guidelines.
Along with all members of the Blakehill community, any visitors to the school should wash their hands with soap and water before leaving home and once they arrive at Blakehill. Hand sanitiser will also be available on arrival and throughout your visit.
We must take the current situation very seriously and look after the welfare of our pupils and staff and school is currently operating a ‘no handshake’ policy for all members of its community.
If you have any questions, please contact the school office.
