PTA meeting – Monday 25th April 2022

The Lymm High School PTA Committee would like to invite any parents who wish to join the PTA to attend our meeting this evening at 7pm on Zoom. The PTA welcomes any members who may have new and refreshing fundraising ideas.

If you are able to attend, please email kirstyagreen@hotmail.com so the Zoom details can be shared with you. We look forward to seeing some new faces (on screen) this evening.

Summer Bedding Plants

We’ve sourced a new plant supplier and are able to offer a selection of bedding plants once again. The prices are slightly higher than in previous years due to the cost of compost having risen significantly over the last 12 months. However, the range of plants is much greater than we’ve been able to offer before. If you’d like to order any plants, please complete the order form here, and return to school Reception by Wednesday 27th April or email to info@lymmhigh.org.uk.

Delivery will be in May before the Half Term.

Lunchtime Career talks

The week after next, we are hosting a series of lunchtime career talks. Students can bring sandwiches to eat during the events, which are planned to last 30 minutes (1.30-2pm) in the Leisure Centre Studio. The talks will be as follows:

  • Tuesday 3rd May: Careers in Tech
  • Wednesday 4th May: The Engineering industry, roles/apprenticeships, and transferable skills needed for the world of work
  • Thursday 5th May: Digital Careers
  • Friday 6th May: Careers in Engineering

We hope lots of students will join us!

Covid-19 latest guidance

Dear parents and carers

I hope you are well and have been enjoying the Easter holiday. Apologies for interrupting the break, but I am writing with a quick update on the latest guidance relating to Covid-19 and what actions to take if staff or students are unwell.

You may be aware that, as of April 1st, the government published its Living with Covid strategy. This means that there is no longer a requirement for students or staff to test regularly and that the universal/free testing has now finished.

The following guidance is now in place if students or staff are unwell with Covid-19 symptoms:

  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they feel well enough to attend.
  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.
  • In the event that a Covid-19 test is taken, adults with a positive test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.
  • There is no longer a requirement for students or staff to return a negative test before returning to school once they have remained at home for the recommended period of time.

Remote learning via our ‘window into lessons’ will remain available for confirmed Covid cases for the time being, so please make sure you let us know if this is the case for your child.

As ever, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns or questions. Otherwise, enjoy the rest of the day and I look forward to welcoming everyone back tomorrow.

Kind regards

Gwyn Williams
