Covid-19

All information regarding COVID-19 will be displayed here

Due to recent updates from the Department for Education following school closures, the risk assessment is going through further updates and will be published shortly. 

Dear parents and carers,

We would like to thank those of you who contributed your feedback in our parent survey. At Brighstone, we feel it is important to gather parent views, because we believe in the importance of working together to be the best school we can be for your child. We were delighted to see so many positive comments, and I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone in the team at Brighstone, and to you for your continued support during these very difficult times.

We know this is a challenging time for parents, carers and children. Remote education has brought new demands and many parents and carers are balancing various responsibilities while supporting your children with education at home. While schools reopen to all children from 8th March, this remote education provision will continue to be in place if a bubble has to close.

Please find attached a summary of the survey with our responses to some of your feedback, queries and concerns, which I hope reassures you and provides answers to any questions you may have. This document is also available on our school website.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Many thanks,
Mrs Lennon

Launch of the NHS Test and Trace service

The new NHS Test and Trace service has launched today and will form a central part of the government’s coronavirus recovery strategy.

Anyone who tests positive for coronavirus will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace and will need to share information about their recent interactions.

People identified as having been in close contact with someone who has a positive test must stay at home for 14 days, even if they do not have symptoms, to stop unknowingly spreading the virus.

Further information on the NHS Test and Trace service can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/news/government-launches-nhs-test-and-trace-service

Guidance on the NHS Test and Trace service for employers, businesses and workers can be found here:

Guidance on how the NHS Test and Trace works can be found here:

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-test-and-trace-how-it-works

Public Health England has published guidance that explains what you should do if the NHS Test and Trace service notifies you that you are a contact of a person who has tested positive for coronavirus and you do not live with that person.

Parent Survey – Feedback

“Brighstone School is an excellent school. Very happy with the progress my child is making”

“My child has come on in leaps and bounds and has massively surprised me. I am very happy.”

Thanks to all parents who took part in our recent Parent Questionnaire. We are proud to report that 100% of parents who responded said that their child is happy and feels safe at our school. The responses this year also show an overall improvement in the school’s performance in meeting particular pupils’ needs, supporting learning, receiving information about progress and dealing with bullying – and it was great to see that you feel we are good at keeping you well informed.

Our thanks to all parents who completed the questionnaire.
