Dear Parents,
I and the staff wish you all a very happy new year and hope that you had a peaceful holiday break.

I am writing to update you on the current situation regarding schools and Covid 19. You will have seen the ongoing discussions in the media in recent days about the opening of primary schools in the light of an increase in cases with the new strain of Covid 19. Unfortunately, I have had to make the decision to close Southfields Primary School to the wider school
community from tomorrow Tuesday 5th January 2021. I will review the plans for week beginning 11th January later in the week. This closure is due to the significantly reduced number of staff available to be on site and to provide the required safe ratio of staff to pupils.
The school will remain open to those children of critical workers and those classed as vulnerable children. Pastoral staff will be contacting those parents today. School gates will be open from 8.40am and school will close at 3pm as normal. Please use the normal school entrances.
If your child is ill for any reason please do not send them into school but ring 02476226810 and inform the office staff of the nature of the illness. No parents will be allowed on the school site. You may also use our email enquiries@southfields.coventry.sch.uk

Dear Parents

All the staff at Southfields Primary School would like to wish you all a happy and safe Christmas with your families and to thank you for your support throughout this difficult time in our lives.

Please take time to read this message:

Should a child from Southfields Primary become ill over the holiday break please get them tested immediately. Should they have a positive result then you must inform the school immediately as it may affect other children and staff and may affect a return to school in January. Please use the link below to give us the necessary details. The isolation requirements for positive cases are 10 days from symptom onset, or from test day if asymptomatic. The first day of symptoms/the test will be day 0, pupils can come out of isolation on day 11 if they are well and have not had a fever for 48 hours.

If you can not access the link then you must inform the school via our enquiries email. enquiries@southfields.coventry.sch.uk

Merry Christmas from all at Southfields.

Mrs E Hedley

Government Update

A change to the self-isolation period from 14 to 10 days has been announced, starting today.

 

People who test positive should continue to self-isolate for 10 days from onset of symptoms or 10 days from point of taking a positive test if asymptomatic.

 

Parents must inform the school if your child is ill and we recommend that if a child has any Covid symptoms that they get a test.  For speed and efficiency book a drive in or walk in test, you will get results within 24hours. Speak to our Pastoral team if you need help with this. To protect the school community please inform the school of the results of the test immediately as it may affect others in school. If someone in your family tests positive the rest of the family members must isolate for 10 days. If your child tests positive over the Christmas holidays please inform the school immediately via our email address enquiries@southfields.coventry.sch.uk

Southfields School now uses an online payment system called SIMS Pay which you can use to pay for school meals, school trips and school uniform.  SIMS Pay is a secure and easy way to make payments to school and reduces the need to handle cash.  If you have not already registered to use this system please ask the school office for a Registration Invitation.  All we need from you is your email address.

You can find further help on how to register by clicking on this link: https://southfieldsprimary.com/sims-pay/

This is a reminder that children and staff should not be at school when unwell (whether symptoms are COVID-19 related or not), but also that nobody should be attending school if they have been advised to isolate by NHS Test and Trace, or someone in their household has COVID symptoms or is awaiting a test result. Anyone who has had contact with a confirmed case must isolate for a full 14 days.

Our uniform consists of:

  • White polo shirt 
  • Grey or black trousers or shorts (weather permitting)  
  • Grey or black skirt
