A warm welcome to you from everyone here at Withycombe Raleigh Primary School. We are a successful and friendly Church of England Primary School located in the seaside town of Exmouth. Our school website is designed to give you a flavour of the many wonderful things that go on in our thriving school.
We hold high expectations that all of our pupils find success, both academically and socially. We're also proud of the strong community links that we've built with our local church and charities.
As a Church school we have a common vision that is shared with our whole school community: ‘Growing Happy, Caring, Hearts and Minds’. The foundation of this can be found in the Bible, John 15 v 12; ‘My command is this: love each other as I have loved you’.
Our vision is supported by our five ‘GRACE’ values: Generosity, Respect, Agape (the unconditional love from God), Courage and Empathy. These values underpin everything that we do in our school, making it a happy place to be and where children’s wellbeing is at the very heart.
We take our safeguarding duties incredibly seriously. If you have any concerns about a child please let us know. Please visit our Safeguarding page for more information.
Current Covid Guidelines
On April 1st 2022 the Government announced its new guidelines around 'Living with Covid'.
For schools this means that the guidance around what you should do if your child is unwell or tests positive with Covid has changed slightly.
Updated guidance states:
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.
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, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
adults with a positive COVID-19 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 will be 3 days.
This means that children who test positive with Covid should isolate for 3 days and can return to school after this period as long as they are well and do not have a high temperature. If you have any queries regarding the new guidance or if you are unsure what to do if your child is unwell, please contact our school office.
