ИНФОРМАЦИОННОЕ ПИСЬМО РОДИТЕЛЯМ об ОРГАНИЗАЦИИ УЧЕБНОГО ПРОЦЕССА ВО ВРЕМЯ НЕПРЕДВИДЕННОГО ЗАКРЫТИЯ ШКОЛЫ

Dear parents,

On behalf of the governors and staff of AZBUKA, we thank you for all your support and understanding at this difficult time.

Our top priority is the health of our children, teachers and community, alongside our pupils’ continued education. We are constantly in contact with each other and colleagues elsewhere, and are monitoring official advice from the health and education authorities to decide how best to respond.

The teachers have been preparing learning packs and developing distance learning options so we can continue to keep children supported in the weeks ahead. Different areas of learning and subjects have been covered, including non-screen family activities and additional complementary resources. We will be in touch again soon with further information and advice.

We are also exploring different ways for AZBUKA to continue its work. We also ask for your support, understanding and solidarity at what is a difficult time for our operations.

Together, the AZBUKA community can live our values and re-emerge stronger in the future.

For all news and memos, please refer to our school website (NEWS) or your e-mail address.

Maria Gavrilova, headteacher

COVID-19 – IMPORTANT NOTICE

COVID-19 – IMPORTANT NOTICE
FROM: the Governors of AZBUKA Russian-English bilingual school:
To: all parents and staff

Dear parents and staff,
PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS, DON’T PANIC, BUT DO KEEP INFORMED AND ACT
RESPONSIBLY!
We take wellbeing of children and staff as high priority. The COVID-19 will be having
impact on all our lives (in school, travel, public spaces and at home) and we all have duty to
help reduce the threat of catching or passing on the virus.
No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England.

Check and follow official advice

As the situation on COVID-19 is changing regularly we advise you regularly check and follow official scientific and government advice (backed up by health professionals).  
Latest advice, regularly updated:
https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
It is IMPORTANT to follow this advice – that also states:
Stay indoors and avoid contact with other people if you’ve travelled to the UK from the following
places in the last 14 days, even if you do not have symptoms:

[refer website for latest list of countries]

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Caution on some reports in media and social media, that can on occasion spread incorrect
information.


Actions put in place by Azbuka:

  • AZBUKA is following government advice and regularly reviewing the situation
  • All staff and parents to regularly update themselves with official government advice – and to follow such advice
  • School to be informed immediately should any case occur within close family members at home
  • Keep away from AZBUKA (or any other educational setting) if you think you or your child may have symptoms and inform the educational setting
  • Cleaning has been enhanced
  • Antibacterial gel provided
  • All children, staff and visitors to wash hands on first arrival at school
  • Children and staff wash hands regularly and before eating
  • Social distancing – no need to shake hands – no offence will be taken!
  • School visits – risk assessments will be reviewed and school visits may be reduced or cancelled
  • Outdoor play – risk assessment will be reviewed and precautions taken to minimise risk
  • Mental-health wellbeing – please be aware that children can be vulnerable to over-worry and distress. It is therefore important to reassure children that this is a temporary event, whilst it may last some months it will end. Discussion should be age-appropriate, not to cause panic or undue distress, but it is an opportunity to reinforce – to all the family – importance of maintaining good personal hygiene, especially of regular hand washing.
