Lockdown Reassurance Letter

Dear Parents and Carers,


As we move into the second nationwide lockdown, we want to reassure you that we are doing everything we can to ensure the safety of our pupils, staff and parents. The Dartmoor MAT risk assessment is as robust as possible and will allow school life to continue as it has been over recent months.

Currently, we have not had any children or staff members test positive for COVID-19.  Should a positive result be gained, we, like all schools, will follow Public Health England’s advice. Rest assured, if you or your child/ren could be affected by this we will contact you immediately.


We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your considerate behaviour on school grounds.


Parents/carers have been keeping to the left and using the one-way systems to ensure social distancing has taken place and we commend you for your efforts. If parents/carers would like to wear masks at drop off and collection times, although we can't enforce it, you are welcome to do so.


Best wishes


The OPS Team
