Up to date information for parents and children

Heathcote School is taking our responsibilities for our children and staff very seriously and are adhering to the guidance of Public Health England, the Department for Education and the Independent School Association.  We hold regular meetings to adapt as the situation develops to ensure we keep our children safe.  We are managing our response in a way that is proportionate, calm and informed.  We will update this page regularly as the situation develops and / or as we implement further measures to keep our community safe.

Latest advice

Following the guidance from the UK Government, our school has opened fully to all of our pupils from Nursery to Year 6.  We are able to provide lessons and online learning materials through our Microsoft Teams platform if any of our bubbles are required to remain at home and isolate.  Parents have received detailed information regarding our health and safety procedures including staggered drop off and pick up times.

Government advice is now as follows:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
