We are a Safer Recruitment School 

Welcome 

Best Futures Specialist School is surrounded by fields, trees and nature. We are based in the quiet village of Aylesby, North East Lincolnshire. Our bespoke, pupil focused approach for children between 5 and 11 years old aims to engage each pupil into positive learning experiences, developing communication, a range of physical activities and building friendships. 

We have 3 main classrooms, Treetops, Willow and Oak. Inspired by nature and the environment around us, we embrace our countryside setting and care for our local area. 

Coronavirus Update from School  

Updated guidance for education settings

This guidance is up to 31st May and will be reviewed before 1 June 2020. 

  • staff, young people and children should stay at home if they develop coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise, those who are eligible or required to attend should attend education or work as normal

  • if staff, young people or children develop coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms while at school they must be sent home

  • clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual using standard cleaning products

  • supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands more often than usual. They should do so thoroughly for 20 seconds with running water and soap and dry them thoroughly or use alcohol hand rub or sanitiser ensuring that all parts of the hands are covered

  • posters and lesson plans on general hand hygiene can be found on the eBug website

The updated guidance can be found here.

The importance of hygiene

Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.
In addition to handwashing before eating and after sneezing, you should also wash hands after using toilets and after travelling on public transport.
Please help us in sharing simple and effective hand hygiene messages:

The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene.
Resources are currently available for KS1, KS2 and KS3:

BOOTS PHARMACY SAFE SPACES

Lyndsey Dearlove, Head of the UK SAYS NO MORE Campaign at Hestia said:

“ By creating this safe space in Boots pharmacies, we hope many will be able to safely access support while following Government guidelines. We hope more pharmacies will follow Boots UK’s lead and join the Safe Space initiative. Although we are in a period of lockdown and isolation, our message to victims is that domestic abuse services are open and we can help you.”

You can read the full article here, on the Boots website: 

https://www.boots-uk.com/our-stories/boots-pharmacy-consultation-rooms-become-safe-spaces-for-victims-of-domestic-abuse/

On 1st May 2020, Boots UK announced that victims of domestic abuse will be able to access safe spaces at Boots pharmacy consultation rooms across the country, where they can contact specialist domestic abuse services for support and advice.

Whilst social distancing measures are continuing, it becomes more difficult and restrictive for victims to reach out for support. 

NEW for 2020!
