Covid-19/Coronavirus update

Updated: Wednesday 10th March 2021

On Monday 8th March 2021, we were delighted to reopen our doors and welcome our children back to our Primary School. It has been so heartwarming to see our children learning in the classroom, and interacting with their teachers and friends. 

Drop-off/Collection

We have assigned designated drop-off and collection times for each class bubble, so the children can be let in and out as smoothly as possible, with minimal contact. We will continue to take the children’s temperatures at the school gate each morning. 

Parents are kindly reminded to consider the social distancing rules and not to congregate outside the school. Should you have any queries for the office, please speak to a member of staff at the gate who will be happy to help you. 

We would also request that when on school premises or when talking to a member of staff outdoors, please wear a mask. This helps to minimise the risks of transmission. In addition, we must also ask that parents refrain from mixing outside of school for the rest of this term. 

TGS Safety Measures

In order to keep our community safe, TGS staff are taking lateral flow tests twice a week.

We have always been proud to uphold a very high standard of cleanliness at our sites. We will continue to do all we can to ensure the children remain safe and healthy, while providing an outstanding education in a familiar and encouraging environment.

We have a dedicated team of cleaners who will ensure that all communal spaces and frequently-touched surfaces – such as door handles, sides of doors, light switches, key pads etc. – are regularly cleaned throughout the day.

In addition, as ever, the Nursery and Primary sites will be deep-cleaned every evening. We are using Milton to sterilise toys and steam-cleaning anything cleanable. We have reduced the number of toys and materials available on the shelves, so that we can easily clean them in batches.

Thank you

We would like to sincerely thank all of our parents for their ongoing support, as well as congratulate all of our children for their resilience when learning from home. Thank you also to our staff team – whether in school, or teaching from home – for their amazing work.
