Coronavirus (Covid-19) update


Dear Parents,

As you are most likely aware there has been some significant changes regarding the guidelines around Covid-19 this week. We wanted to write to you to outline a few of these changes and hopefully clarify any concerns / questions that you may have.


From 1st April the Government will:

  • Remove the current guidance on voluntary COVID-status certification in domestic settings and no longer recommend that certain venues use the NHS COVID Pass.
  • Update guidance setting out the ongoing steps that people with COVID-19 should take to minimise contact with other people. This will align with the changes to testing.
  • No longer provide free to order universal symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public in England.
  • Consolidate guidance to the public and businesses, in line with public health advice.


At Suffolks Primary we will continue to…

  • Do our best to protect our most vulnerable staff and pupils.
  • Hand sanitise regularly throughout the day.
  • Ventilate our school (where possible) to ensure that the spread of COVID is as limited as it can be.
  • Continue with our COVID cleaning plan to ensure that all touch points are cleaned daily.
  • Have an outbreak plan in case of new variants and ensure that our community is kept informed.
  • Only have external visitors on site if it is completely necessary and continue where possible to hold external meetings online.

If you have any questions / queries please do not hesitate to contact the school

Finally, we would like to reach out and thank you all for your support and understanding throughout the pandemic I’m sure you will agree it has been a very challenging time for us all.


Thank you

Leadership & Staff  -   Suffolks Primary

Regular school attendance is so important if your child is to get the most from their school experience.

96% is the expected attendance level in all state schools so please work in partnership with us to achieve this.  

If your child is unable to come to school, it is your responsibility to inform us before the start of the school day.

This year's average attendance of 92.25% is below our expected percentage of 96%.




We aim to foster a love of learning that is built on fun, curiosity, challenge and aspirations.  

We are committed to all children being the best they can be and to ensuring that all at Suffolks feel successful.

We are amazed by every child's abilities and feel very privileged to join with our parents on each child's learning journey.
