Wolvercote Primary School remained open for key worker children and vulnerable children throughout the coronavirus lockdowns. We had a large uptake of children returning in June when we were allowed to partially reopen. We opened for all children from September 1st 2020 and we have been delighted to welcome our children back to school.
We have now begun the school year 2022-23 with new government guidance relating to the pandemic. Schools are allowed to return to normal with group activities taking place in the school where possible. However, there may be times when infection rates become high and this needs to be reviewed. It is now not recommended that children under 19 are tested for coronavirus unless directed to by a health professional, however if a child does test positive it is recommended that they stay at home for 3 days.
