Guidance for Parents and Carers

If your child or someone they live with develops any of the main symptoms of coronavirus, they must self-isolate and not attend school. Anyone with symptoms must book a test. Please inform us of test results as soon as possible. If your child tests positive outside of school hours (including weekends) please email covid19ss@genesistrust.net immediately to let us know.

Remote Learning and Virtual Lessons

We have planned a remote learning strategy which will be used in the event of a ‘bubble’ self-isolating or in the possibility of a full school closure to ensure continuity of education for our pupils. You can view more details about our remote learning strategy and read our policy on this by clicking here.

Staff lockdown video message

During the first national lockdown, the staff at St. Saviour’s were missing having all of our pupils in school with us. As such, we sent out this video message to let our children and their families know that we were thinking of them. We hope that viewing it brings a smile to your face!
