Coronavirus/Covid-19 Update

Our school continues to take advice from Public Health England and the Department for Education regarding the Corona virus. We are advised to continue to keep our school open unless we are advised by the authorities to do differently. We will inform you as soon as possible if this advice changes.

We would also like to advise you of the information we have been referred to which we hope you will find useful:

Hygiene
Students are regularly reminded of good hygiene practices and the importance of washing their hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.  The NHS has issued the following advice on the best way to wash your hands.  https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/healthy-body/best-way-to-wash-your-hands/

Travel
Public Health England updated their travel advice, recommending that anyone returning from Italy should self-isolate, even if they do not have any symptoms. If your child develops symptoms, call NHS 111 to find out what to do next.  Their latest information can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public
