Working and achieving together to enrich lives and nurture bright futures


Lowerhouses CE (VC) School welcomes children from the community whatever their religious or cultural beliefs. We provide all members of our school with the opportunity to develop their spirituality and a sympathetic understanding of faith. Christian values underpin the ethos of the school and these values are reinforced through teaching and learning.

Our school has a very strong inclusive ethos of care and respect clearly underpinned by Christian values. From our Circle of God’s Care at the entrance, through to the Bible verses displayed throughout the school signalling the half termly value, Christian tradition is visible everywhere. It is our aim to provide for pupils an atmosphere, practice and education in which their spiritual life and experience will develop. Our worship is of a high quality and intentionally impacts on the whole school community.

We hope you will find our prospectus, found in the key information section, helpful in answering some of your questions about Lowerhouses School. If after reading this, you require more details, please feel free to contact School.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms in children

The most recent guidance shared with school is outlined below. Please note we are still getting cases of covid in school so this information should provide some guidance.

Children and young people aged 18 and under can get coronavirus (COVID-19), but it's usually a mild illness and most get better in a few days.
Symptoms of COVID-19 can include:

  • A high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 ormore coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • Shortness of breath
  • Feeling tired or exhausted
  • An aching body
  • A headache
  • A sore throat
  • A blocked or runny nose
  • Loss of appetite
  • Diarrhoea
  • Feeling sick or being sick

The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.


What to do if your child has symptoms

Your child should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have symptoms of COVID-19 and they either:

  • Have a high temperature
  • Do not feel well enough to go to school, college or childcare, or do their normal activities

 They can go back to school when they feel better or do not have a high temperature. If your child has mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat or mild cough, and they feel well enough, they can go to school, college or childcare.
Encourage your child to cover their mouth and nose with a tissue when they cough or sneeze, and to wash their hands after using or throwing away tissues.

Most children who are unwell will recover in a few days with rest and plenty of fluids.

If you are unsure of what course of action to take if you child is unwell, please contact school and we will support where we can.

Any child unable to attend school for Covid related reasons will be provided with home learning through Seesaw or Tapestry.  If you are in need of an electronic device to support this, then we have a number of these available in school and are happy to loan them to families to enable the children to access the work.  Please contact the office if you require a laptop.
