Coronavirus update 13th March 2020


We continue to follow Public Health England , Local and Government advice on this virus . Following the update from the Prime Minister last night, school remains open and we will continue with usual school activities. Risk assessments will continue to be conducted. 

The advice has changed slightly. 

If you or your child feels unwell with fever or a new persistent dry cough, you self-isolate for 7 days. Use the NHS 111 health line for further advice. Please inform the school via telephone or via parentmail. Should the advice change, school will send a parent mail. We know this is a worrying time, please be reassured we are following advice in school and we still have hand gel and lots of antibacterial soap. Mr Roche and his cleaning team are disinfecting door handles , floors and surfaces each day. If a school closure is announced in coming weeks or days, the school has plans for distance learning for the children. Again more details of this will be on the website or sent home.

The following website and email is available from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday if you have any concerns.

Telephone 08000 468687

To help keep yourself and others free from infection: Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser if you’re out and about, particularly after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose, eating or handling food, and when arriving at work or getting home. Catch your coughs and sneezes in a tissue, or use your arm if needed, throw the tissue away, then wash your hands. More information about the virus, its symptoms and the current situation is available at NHS online.
