Coronavirus Information for Parents & Carers

Let's Beat Coronavirus TogetherAt Totley All Saints, our number one priority has, & always will be, the safety & wellbeing of our pupils and staff.

 

Throughout the pandemic, we have worked hard alongside the other members of our Trust (The Diocese of Sheffield Academies Trust) as well as within our partnership with Sheffield Local Authority, to ensure that everyone is kept safe & well through full compliance with all Government guidance. Our risk assessment is continually monitored & updated for its effectiveness & has been quality assured both within the Trust & through the Sheffield LA Health & Safety Department. As a result, we & you, can have every confidence in our preparations, systems, policies & procedures.

 

As a school, we are incredibly proud of how our school family & wider community has adapted & embraced change. We are proud that while things may be different, our TASS spirit is stronger than ever!

 

 

A handy chart of symptoms to help distinguish between COVID and other illnessesWhat to do if anyone in your family shows symptoms of Coronavirus:  

We would ask that all parents / carers look out for the following symptoms of Coronavirus amongst their families:

  • A high temperature– feeling hot to the touch on the chest or back (you do not always need to measure your temperature to be able to tell);
  • A new, continuous cough– this means coughing for a lot more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours;
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste– where you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
