Following news of the Coronavirus outbreak, we would like to reassure our parents, staff and visitors about the precautions we are taking to protect our school community.

The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.

The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned about the health of their children and we would like to reassure you that we are monitoring the situation daily.

 

Latest information and advice can also be found at:

We have spoken to all staff and pupils about ways to reduce the opportunity for the virus to spread. This includes not sharing food or drink and ensuring coughs and sneezes are caught in a tissue and washing hands regularly and thoroughly. We also use hand sanitises but these do not replace good hand washing and encouraging children not to touch their eyes and nose.

Advice for parents/guardians

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.

There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.

 

What action you can take

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
