  • Pyjamarama Day

    Published 21/04/21

    Pyjamarama is back for 2021!

    As World Book Day was during the National Lockdown,  this year we are going to join in with Pyjamarama Day, as a way to get children excited about reading, while raising money for a great cause.

    Pyjamarama will take place this year on Friday 14 May 2021.

    Pyjamarama is all about getting children excited about reading, and fundraising to make sure every child gets their bedtime story.

    We are asking that children come to school in the comfort of their pyjamas, and donate £1 to BookTrust to help all children have access to stories and to reading.

    We will be organising some fun reading activities in school for the children to enjoy on the day.

    Take a look on the Booktrust website for more information: https://www.booktrust.org.uk/what-we-do/programmes-and-campaigns/pyjamarama/

  • COVID-19 CASES OVER THE EASTER HOLIDAY

    Published 01/04/21

    COVID-19 OVER THE EASTER HOLIDAYS

    Over the first few days of the holiday, schools have been asked to help coordinate Public Health England’s response to any positive cases of Covid-19 amongst school age children.

    As such, if your child has a confirmed case before the 7th April, please contact us using covid@crossdale.notts.sch.uk   letting us know:

    • Your child’s name and class
    • When he / she was last in school
    • When he / she started to show symptoms
    • When he / she had a test
    • When the positive result was confirmed

    We will then contact members of staff and other children who might need to self-isolate.

    After the 7th, you should follow NHS advice and, if appropriate, let us know on the first day back, the 19th April, that your child is self-isolating following a positive test result.

    NHS advice can be found here: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

    Further details:

    • If we are notified of a positive test by 7th April, and the child’s first symptoms occurred no less than 48 hours after their last day attending school (3rd April, if child attended on the 1st) we will attempt to trace contacts of that child in school, as per government advice, and following any further advice. We will usually email any contacts, so please do check emails regularly.
    • If a positive test result occurs after the 7th April, or symptoms occur 48 hours after the last attendance in school, we will not do any tracing as per government guidance. Track and trace will perform any tracing in these circumstances. However, please still let us know of a positive result. The graphic below may explain this more effectively.
