Coronavirus (COVID-19) - Update
To keep all members of our school safe the school leadership team continues to follow the latest advice and guidance from Public Health England regarding the Coronavirus. Following the recent government announcement the UK response to the Coronavirus has moved to Phase 2 - Delay. This has implications for our school community.
- The school will remain open to pupils and staff unless we are advised otherwise by Public Health Englan
- If your child shows any symptoms of coronavirus, even if the symptoms are mild, they must stay at home for seven days. The NHS guidance can be found here https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
The symptoms include;
- A high temperature
- A new continuous cough
Please call the school office on the first morning of any absence giving brief details of the reason for the absence.
We appreciate that this may be inconvenient and present challenges to families but it is important that everyone follows the guidance to safeguard the wider community.
Staff and volunteers have been given the same advice so there may be some minor alterations to staffing. We have made detailed plans to ensure that disruption is kept to a minimum and that teaching and learning is able to continue. It is important to you and us that your child is not overly worried and is able to go about the school day as normal.
If there are staff or pupils who stay at home because they are displaying mild symptoms please do not be alarmed. They are simply following the guidance. At this stage there are no known or suspected cases of COVID-19 linked to the school.
Our hand washing routines are firmly established now and everyone in school is taking the necessary actions to stop the spread of Coronavirus. If you have any concerns or questions please contact the school office for clarification. Throughout this time we will keep you informed of any developments.
Thank you for your support.
