IMPORTANT NOTICE: Special Partnership Trust Coronavirus Statement below

Welcome to the Special Partnership Trust

5 November 2020


Dear Parents and Carers,


Covid-19 update following the publication of the latest Government guidance. 


I only wrote to you all about 24 hours ago to say that we had yet to receive any further guidance following the Government announcement of a second lockdown on the 31st October.  The Trust has now received further guidance last night regarding updating processes and procedures as England enters a second period of lockdown. 


I have summarised the key points below.   


  • Parent/carers should not visit schools during the national lockdown period. All non-essential visits to schools will be postponed.  Essential visitors will be required to wear PPE. 
  • Trust Schools are reviewing risk assessments and will be communicating to all staff, parents, carers, and pupils advising about wearing face coverings when moving around communal areas.
  • Children that GPs or specialist clinicians have classed as clinically extremely vulnerable should not attend school.
  • Staff who have been advised by the NHS or GP that they are clinically extremely vulnerable should work from home.


Most children originally identified as clinically extremely vulnerable are no longer identified as such. We would ask that you speak to your GP or specialist clinician as soon as possible if you have not already done so, or received a letter from the NHS, to understand whether your child is still classed as clinically vulnerable. 


Those children whose doctors have confirmed they are still clinically extremely vulnerable should not attend school during the lockdown period and will be provided with home learning. Where a meeting with a GP or specialist clinician has not taken place, the Government advice is that the child is still clinically extremely vulnerable and should not attend school during the lockdown period. 


As always if you have any questions, queries, or concerns please contact your school and discuss your concerns with the Headteacher. 


Thank you for your cooperation.


Yours sincerely,


Guy Chappell
