Health Information - COVID19

Update to parents/carers 1st April 2021 Good morning. I am hoping you have received a copy of our Easter newsletter. It is also on the website. I just wanted to stress a couple of points: • Please contact me (p.hearle@ludlowschool.com) if your child develops any symptoms of Covid-19 within two days of the end of term (Friday and Saturday). • LFD Home testing – please continue the routine of twice weekly testing and reporting to NHS Test and Trace. • Please test your child on Sunday evening, 18th April, or Monday morning, 19th April, so that we can isolate any positive cases before the return to school. Free School Meal vouchers have been sent out to families for the two weeks of the holiday, today. We had hoped that face coverings would not be necessary in classrooms after Easter. However, we must await an announcement from the Prime Minister over the Easter period for any decisions regarding safety measures in schools. It has been a wonderful four weeks back together in school. Thank you for your support over this difficult term. Best wishes, Paula Hearle

Photographs are taken as part of routine school life, and they that may include your son/daughter.  For example, we often invite press photographers to record events, take team photos and pictures of award winners or special presentations.  We also take photographic records of trips and visits.  In addition, our school publicity material may well include students to illustrate school life.

Photographs taken by the press remain their property.  Photographs taken by our own staff remain under the school’s ownership.  

In all these matters we will operate the following code:

  1. Images taken by the school may be given to the press to illustrate an event, but will not be provided at their request.
  2. Images taken by the press may include student names for publication in newspapers.
  3. Publicity material used by the school will NOT name individual students.
  4. Web-based images will NOT include full student names.

If you explicitly do not wish your child to be included in photographs, please make sure that your child is aware, and you inform us in writing.  We will then do our best to ensure they are not photographed.
