Dear Parents/Carers

We are aware that many students returning to school will get everyday illnesses on their return to school after not mixing for so long.  The advice on what to do next is tricky so we have tried to make it as clear as possible for you.

Public Health England has asked us to write to you, to help them ensure that they are able to identify those with coronavirus while avoiding a huge increase in demand for tests from people without coronavirus symptoms.

Students (and staff) should only be tested if they develop one or more of the main coronavirus symptoms, which are:

    • a high temperature where your temperature is above 37.8C
    • a new, continuous cough.  The guidance says that ‘a new continuous cough is where you cough a lot for more than an hour, or have three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours’
    • the loss or change of their sense of taste or smell

Note that you do not need all of these symptoms, you just need one of them.  To get a test you need to ring 119.  You should be aware that once you have asked for a test, the whole household needs to isolate until a negative result is given.

THE RIGHT STEPS TO YOUR SUCCESS

Our Vision, Mission & Values

At Frederick Gent, we pride ourselves on the excellent pastoral care provided and the positive relationships that we foster across the schools – between staff and pupils, staff and parents and between the pupils themselves. The size of the school and the sense of community within it ensures that at Frederick Gent School every child is known, valued and matters. We have very high expectations for what our young people can achieve, not just academically but also through the personal growth and social development that we foster in the students at our school.

These values are encapsulated in our mission that, as a school, we will ensure that in everything we do we provide Quality, Care and Success.

This prospectus will give you a sense of how we deliver on these aims. We are a school with a broad

and varied curriculum which allows pupils to widen their horizons and experience success in a variety of different subjects. We are also a school that provides an extensive range of extra-curricular activities

to ensure pupils enjoy their time with us and are exposed to new and exciting opportunities which allows them to grow personally and socially.

We are determined that pupils will leave the school as confident and ambitious young people who are well prepared to embark on a happy and successful life beyond the school gates.
