Wellington Primary School’s COVID-19 Home-School Agreement

Wellington Primary School’s COVID-19 Home-School Agreement


The school will do its best to:

  • Provide an environment which has been risk assessed in response to the COVID-19 infection.
  • Adhere to social distancing rules as set out by the government, as much as we reasonably can.
  • Provide a curriculum that meets the needs of your child’s well-being, mental health and academic needs.
  • Contact parents/carers if your child displays any symptoms of COVID-19.
  • Educate the children about good respiratory and hand hygiene.
  • Regularly clean frequently touched surfaces.
  • Contact Public Health Bradford for the most up-to-date guidance should staff or children in your child’s ‘bubble’ show symptoms or test positive for COVID-19.

Parent / Carer

To help my child at school, I know and understand that:

  • If my child, or anyone in my household, shows symptoms of COVID-19, I will not send them to school. We will self-isolate & arrange to have a test. We will follow guidelines set out by the Government. See – ‘Guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection’.
  • I will let the school know the result of any test as soon as possible via telephone.
  • If my child shows symptoms of COVID-19 at school, I will collect my child from school immediately.
  • If my child is unwell at school, she/he will be immediately isolated from other children and staff with appropriate adult supervision if required.
  • When dropping my child off and picking them up, I will adhere to social distancing rules.
  • My child will need to use good respiratory and hand hygiene.
  • I will not be allowed into the school without a prearranged appointment.
  • If my child cannot comply with health & safety rules at lunchtime, they will need to have their lunch at home.
  • If my child’s behaviour threatens the safety of others, they will need to revert to home schooling until they can be safe.


I will:

  • Follow the social distancing rules in class and in the playground.
  • Stay in my group all day.
  • Tell an adult if I feel unwell.
  • Not mix with any other children in the school.
  • Follow good respiratory hygiene: coughing and sneezing into elbow or tissue (catch it-bin it-kill it).
  • Follow good hand hygiene – use soap and water for 20 seconds.
  • Behave well at all times to maintain the safety of myself and others.
  • Follow these expectations and know that if I don’t, I will be sent home and will not be able to come back into school until I can be safe.
