COVID 19 information and risk assessment

This page contains the most up to date information on the school’s response to the COVID 19 pandemic.

Please click here for explanation about the latest self isolation rules.

Latest updates

With the spread of the new Omicron variant, there have been some changes to the measures in place in school to manage the risk from COVID 19.  Following government guidance, staff are wearing face coverings in communal areas and we are asking visitors to the school to do the same.  We have also tightened up on the frequency with which the children wash or sanitise their hands.

Please see below for details on the Hobart Cluster of schools response to the new rules on self isolation and lateral flow testing for primary age children.

CLuster letter – self isolation and lateral flow testing

We will be keeping a really close eye on the changes to government guidance over the holidays and contingency plans in place for January.  If there are changes to the arrangements in school for the start of the new term, we will also publish these here.

In the event of a national lockdown where schools move to online learning for the majority of pupils, we will contact families on the 4th Jan to make arrangements for the children of Key workers and vulnerable children.  Please note that if there is very high demand for places we may be forced to make difficult decisions about the allocation of places.  If this is the case we will publish the criteria so you can see how this has been organised.
