Dear Parents & Carers,
As you will be aware, there is currently extensive media coverage of the Coronavirus/Covid-19 virus.
As a school, we are following the official Public Health England guidance for educational settings.
As yet there are no confirmed cases of this within our area and there is no reason for any student or staff member to stop attending school, unless their particular circumstances put them in the ‘at risk’ category. This would be travel to a ‘specified country or area’ within the last 14 days, or contact with a confirmed case. The list of specified countries and areas can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-specified-countries-and-areas. Any student meeting these criteria should follow the Public Health England guidance given on this website and to contact the school.
Within school, we are following the Public Health England hygiene advice: https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/866771/Coronavirus_advice_for_education_settings_poster.pdf
We are continually monitoring the guidance and will update all Parents and Carers of our students through email and our website should there be any changes to the published advice.
