COVID-19 Update (1st February 2022)

It has been a very traumatic time for everyone across the country over the past two years, dealing with not just a deadly virus sweeping through the world, but how to cope practically with the continuing relaxation and re-imposing of restrictions.

With job uncertainty, health worries, and social distancing to get our heads around, throughout this ongoing outbreak we are still here to support all of your families in whatever way we can.

We are continuing to monitor the ongoing guidance from government about the COVID-19 outbreak, and how best to continue to support the children, parents and staff at Good Manors. As and when this guidance is updated, we will keep you informed of our plans.

We have seen a return to some kind of normality over the past several months, particularly following the ongoing successful vaccine rollout. Normal planning and observation procedures continues, so that observation and assessment is still what we were doing before the pandemic. We are still restricted in some activities and resources that we cannot still use as normal, but continue to work around these restrictions to continue to ensure that the children can still have the very best chances to develop and learn.

During this winter, we will see children develop symptoms of COVID-19 when they are only catching other respiratory infections – this will continue to lead to an inevitable increase in children being temporarily excluded from the nursery, with some children being temporarily excluded from the nursery on multiple occasions within a relatively short time period. Until the government guidance changes, there is nothing that we can do about this, so we ask for your continued patience and understanding.

However, we are also seeing an increase in the number of positive cases from staff and children due to the ongoing Omicron variant sweeping through the country, which may lead to short-term changes to practice.

We also want to once again stress that as per current guidance, parents/carers should only get yourselves or your children tested if you or your child has symptoms of COVID-19.

The latest copy of our COVID-19 guidance can be found here.

We have also created a set of flowcharts to help you to understand the current self-isolation guidelines, which you can view here.

We have a COVID-19 code of conduct which can be found here.

Take care of yourselves and stay safe, from our family, to yours.
