COVID-19 Home School Agreement


Home School Agreement


Westbrook Primary school will do its best to:

  • Provide an environment which has been risk assessed in response to COVID-19 infection.
  • Adhere to the 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 symptoms of COVID-19 as this will mean you will all need to self-isolate for at least 14 days or until the test comes back negative (test results must be shared with school). 
  • Continue our clear and consistent approach to rewards and sanctions for children as set out in the Behaviour Policy as well as the expectations outlined in this agreement. 
  • Communicate between home and school through notices, newsletters, text, email and the school website. 


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 for 14 days as a family.  I will get them tested and I will let the school know as soon as possible via telephone.
  • If my child, or another child in the group, shows symptoms of COVID-19 at school, I will collect my child from school immediately. 
  • On my commute, and when dropping my child off and picking them up, I will adhere to the 2 metre social distancing rules.
  • When dropping off and picking up, I will strictly stick to the school timings for my child. 
  • I will ensure that only one adult drops off and picks up my child. I will ensure this adult is a member of my household. 
  • I will ensure that I give at least 48hrs notice if I change my mind about my child returning to school. 
  • My child must not bring any items, other than their lunchbox, water bottle and reading book, into school (No bags, pencil cases, PE kit, balls etc) or take items home. 
  • I will ensure lunchboxes are and water bottles are labelled and disinfected each day before they come to school. 
  • My child will have their temperature taken on arrival and during the day if they feel, or present, as being unwell. 
  • I will need to remind my child about social distancing rules but accept they are difficult to follow and that my child may not always do this successfully.
  • My child will need to use good hand, nose and mouth hygiene measures.
  • I will not be allowed into the school at all.  I will communicate via phone or email.
  • I will come into school through the main gate and drop my child off at the door.  I will leave immediately through the other main gate (one-way system). If I need to speak to a member of staff I will do this via email or phone.
  • I need to support all staff in their efforts to create a ‘safe as possible’ environment during this crisis. 
  • Read all letters/messages/emails that are sent home.
  • I need to inform the school immediately of any changes to parent/carer and emergency contact details.
  • If my child is deemed unsafe, he/she will be sent home and cannot return until they can be safe. 









I will do my best to:

  • Adhere to the social distancing rules in class and in the playground.
  • Tell an adult if I feel unwell.
  • Not bring things into school from home, except my lunch box, water bottle, reading book and coat (no bags etc)
  • Only use the equipment provided to me by school and no other.
  • Not mix with any other children in the school.
  • Only enter and exit the school building from the designated gate i.e.  Westbrook Road main gates (one-way system in and out of the grounds). 
  • Follow good hand, nose and mouth hygiene: coughing and sneezing into a tissue (catch it-bin-it-kill-it). 
  • Follow good hand hygiene – use soap and water for 20 seconds/hand sanitiser.
  • Only use public transport if absolutely necessary and ensure I socially distance and war a face covering, If I do.
  • 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. 
  • I will ensure that my phone (yr6 only) is switched off in school and placed in my tray under my desk at all times.
