Information about the Coronavirus
As you are aware, the government recently updated their guidance with regard to coronavirus. The Department for Education has also issued additional guidance to schools. I wanted to write to keep you fully up to date with the most recent advice and hopefully answer any questions that you may have.
The government has advised
against school closures at this point. As a result, we will remain open to all pupils and continue with business as usual. If this changes, we will contact parents immediately via text message.
We have set up a page on the website with details around work to complete in the event of a closure and this can be found here
What to do if your child feels unwell:
The following symptoms have been identified by the government:
- A new and continuous cough and/or
- a high temperature or fever (above 37.8 degrees)
If your child presents with these symptoms, you should seek advice from the 111 on-line service (www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19). If it is necessary for your child to be absent, please contact the school attendance team in the usual way.
