Government Guidance

Following Government guidance, as of Tuesday 5th January 2021 Ogbourne CofE Primary School asks parents to keep their children at home, wherever possible. We have been asked to remain open only for those children who absolutely have to attend.

As a country, we all need to do what we can to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus. That is why the government has given clear guidance on self-isolation, household isolation and social distancing. And the most recent scientific advice on how to further limit the spread of COVID-19 is clear. If children can stay safely at home, they should, to limit the chance of the virus spreading.

It is important to underline that schools, all childcare settings (including early years settings, childminders and providers of childcare for school-age children), colleges and other educational establishments, remain safe places for children. But the fewer children making the journey to school, and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk that the virus can spread and infect vulnerable individuals in wider society.

Equipment to Access Learning

We aim to lend computer equipment to those families that need them. For example, if you do not have a computer in the family home we can supply one. If there are several children in the family home but only one computer we will endeavour to supply additional equipment to you. ICT should not be a barrier to children engaging with their work at home. If your child does not have access to a computer or the internet at home or your child has lost their login details:

Appropriate equipment to be loaned to students at home and will be assessed on a needs basis. In the first instance, we will prioritise those families with no facilities.
