Coronavirus Information

Information for Parents
 
This page has been created to centralise any useful links, recommended resources and guidance. As a school we are carefully following the advice from Public Health England and we will update you as soon as we have anything further. 
 
Please see the letter to parents below which details our plan should the school closures come into effect. The letter also details the measures we are currently taking in school to minimise the spread of germs and promote hand hygiene. 
 
At present, we will remain open unless we have a confirmed case of the virus or directed otherwise but we must insist that any child (or adult) with flu like symptoms (temperature of 37.8C and a persistent cough) will be asked to stay at home for 7 days. 

Handwashing advice

The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport. We are ask asking children to wash their hands as soon as they arrive at school and then regularly throughout the day.
