Coronavirus Update

CORONAVIRUS - information regarding the spread of the virus, and its impact on our school 

From Monday 23rd March, the announcement by the Secretary of State said that we will only be open to children of key workers, children with an educational health care plan and children supported by a social worker. The Government will provide more information about who it defines as key workers after the Cabinet Meeting tomorrow.

Parents are advised to read the government's guidance on staying at home in the case of suspected coronavirus infection. This is based on the most significant symptoms of:

  • new continuous cough, and/or
  • high temperature (37.8°C)

If children, or anyone in your household develop either of these symptoms, they should be kept at home for a period of 14 days from the onset of the symptoms. See stay at home guidance below:

In school, we will continue to encourage regular handwashing, and the use of tissues to 'Catch It, Bin It, Kill It'.
