RE: The return to weekend Madrasha for all pupils following the school’s closure due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullaahi wa barakaatuh.
We pray you and all family members are well.
We are pleased to announce the reopening of our weekend Maktab on the 06/03/2021
I am writing to inform you of the steps al Nehar masjid weekend school will be taking to fully re-open to all pupils and share what you need to know to help your child prepare for their return to school for this new term.
We understand that the return to school is vital for your child’s education and wellbeing; therefore, we will ensure that all pupils can return and do so as safely as possible. That said, we are still not at the point where we can guarantee this. While the risk to children becoming severely unwell due to coronavirus is considered to be low, we will continue to put social distancing and infection control measures in place, as much as practically possible, to help keep all members of our school community safe. However, any localised spike or other COVID-19 related issues may stall a return to school. If this is the case, you will be informed as possible.
Following are a few points in which we encourage that we ALL adhere to.
*It is important that we follow guidelines set out by the government; observe social distancing keep to within your bubble and so forth. We do not encourage parents to congregate whilst en route or outside with other parents and children with one another.
*Anyone who is unwell and displaying symptoms of coronavirus will be asked to stay at home for 14 days.
*Robust hand and respiratory hygiene practises will be encouraged and enforced.
*Enhanced cleaning will be undertaken as necessary, including cleaning any frequently touched surfaces throughout the day.
*Limitations will be placed on the number of people staff and pupils encounter during the school day.
*Large gatherings will be avoided, e.g. assemblies and whole school collective worship-although children will of course take part in daily class assemblies/prayer services/reflections to strengthen our coming together as a faith community once again.
*Pupils will be grouped together as year groups and asked to remain in these groups.
*Contact with other groups will be avoided.
Where practicable, classrooms will be arranged to allow for social distancing and desks will be faced forwards to minimise face-to-face interaction between pupils.
*Pupils will be asked to remain at least two metres away from members of staff, where practicable.
Should any of the above protective measures change at any time, including the need to close the school due to a local lockdown, we will contact you via email as soon as possible.
If your child becomes unwell
If your child becomes unwell at school and develops a new, continuous cough, a high temperature, or a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of smell or taste, they will be sent home immediately. They will be told to self-isolate within the school and supervised, as necessary, until they can be collected. The school will contact you via telephone as soon as possible should your child need to go home.
If your child becomes unwell at home and is presenting with symptoms of coronavirus (listed above), we ask that your child does not attend school and instead stays at home for the next 14 days or until they test negative for coronavirus. We encourage all parents whose child is presenting with coronavirus symptoms to get their child tested and, where required, their family. The same rule applies to all staff members.
Please contact the school office via telephone to notify us that your child will not be attending. We also ask that you notify the school office as soon as possible with the results of any coronavirus tests your child has undertaken.
Lastly, we remind ourselves that nothing happens but by the decree of Allah (SWT). It is imperative that whilst making duaa, we should take the necessary measures to ensure safety for everyone.
