Annual Estyn Report (2020/2021)

CMPS has been noted in the Annual ESTYN Report for our pioneering approach to wellbeing which we can all appreciate has been very important since the pandemic. 'At Cardiff Muslim School, there has been a focus in the school on addressing the wellbeing of staff and pupils. There is a feelings box in each class and regular assemblies on achieving happiness. Each child has been given a ‘happiness journal’, which they write in every day, and staff address any concerns’.

COVID MEASURES:

The school is now fully open, and our pupils are now onsite. We are allowing parents to attend the school for registration/admission by appointment only. The Cardiff and Vale Test, Trace, Protect Service (TTP) has identified that significant numbers of people who test positive for COVID-19 do not have any of the three most common symptoms during the early stages of infection.

People who are experiencing one or more of the three cardinal COVID-19 symptoms (new persistent cough, fever and/or loss or change of taste or smell) must continue to follow Welsh Government guidance on testing and isolation and are required to self-isolate with their household whilst they await a test result.

The Cardiff and Vale Test, Trace, Protect Service (TTP) is now advising that a test is booked if the following symptoms are displayed:

Fatigue, myalgia (muscle ache or pain), a sore throat, a headache, a runny nose, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhoea.

Families are asked to take a test if they are experiencing any of these extended symptoms and they are new, persistent (for over 24 hours) and/or unusual symptoms for them. If individuals then receive a positive COVID-19 test result, they and their household must isolate. Staff/Volunteers - Currently, all staff/volunteers on school site must conduct a LFT weekly and report the results to Public Health Wales with those receiving a positive test having too self-isolate. These tests are performed at home and are not mandatory. 

 

PUBLIC HEALTH MEASURES TO MINIMISE RISK

In order to re-open to all year groups in the safest way, the government and Public Health Wales have set out a series of measures we should implement. These measures fall into one of two categories; limiting contact between pupils and implementing hygiene measures.

 

The essential measures we will be implementing include:

 

At CMPS we are planning on reducing contact in the following ways:

 

LUNCHTIMES                                                                                                                             

All children are expected to bring a packed lunch from home. There are no food heating facilities in school. Children will be eating their lunch in the classrooms then go out for half an hour play.

 

ATTENDANCE                             

When children return to school we kindly ask that they return wearing their school uniform. 

 The usual rules on school attendance will apply including:

 

We would ask that you do not send your child to school if they become unwell, especially if they or a member of their household has symptoms of the coronavirus.  These are:

As per the usual school policy, I would like to remind you also not to send your child into school if they have a stomach ache resulting in vomiting or diarrhoea. In this case the child must stay home for 48 hours after their last episode of vomiting or diarrhoea.

 

Please be assured that our number one priority remains the children’s wellbeing. We appreciate that the coronavirus outbreak may have caused significant wellbeing difficulties for some children and we want to be able to support them on their return to school. Their assigned teaching staff are committed to doing this. If your child is worrying about coming back to school, you could:

 

NEW SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

In order to keep our children and staff safe, the WG have provided us with Lateral Flow Tests (LFT) which will be used by the staff on a weekly basis. Insha'Allah this will help detect the spread of infection early so that we can take the necessary measures to protect and prevent those in our care. All schools are going through uncertain times and we are preparing to the best of our ability to keep your child safe and happy in our school. I would like to reassure you that the staff and management have worked tirelessly to ensure the children return to a safe and happy environment. We are all looking forward to the return of the children in our school. If you have any questions about what will be happening for your child when they return to school, then please do not hesitate to contact us at secretary@cmpswales.org 

JazakhAllah Khair for your continuous support to the school.
