As a school we are acting on advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England regarding precautions for the Coronavirus.
The current guidance asks anyone who shows certain symptoms to stay at home for 7 days. The symptoms are a high temperature (37.8 degrees and above) and a new, continuous cough. Therefore, if your child is showing either of these symptoms please don’t bring them into school for 7 days.
At the moment there are no plans to close schools and we will keep you informed if this changes. If we do have to close, teachers have plans in place for providing learning opportunities for your child at home. These will be shared with you if this becomes the situation.
Obviously the situation is unprecedented and guidance is changing on a daily basis. We’ll keep you informed through Parent App and text message.
We are continuing to remind children to regularly wash their hands. We realise that children may have questions about the ongoing situation based on things they’ve heard and we will ensure that we answer any questions in a sensitive and reassuring way.
