Dear Parents and Carers,
I am writing to reassure you that we are monitoring the Coronavirus situation closely and following guidance from Public Health and the Department for Education.
The government have issued a number of guidelines regarding steps to take to avoid catching the virus, including what to do should people have travelled from specific countries. These can be accessed via www.gov.uk/coronavirus.
The latest guidance is for anyone who has a high temperature and/or a persistent new cough to self-isolate for 7 days. We ask you to follow this approach and not send your child in if they have a high temperature, feel unwell or have just started a cough (as is normal practice). We would be grateful if you could let us know if this is the case. In the same way if any child appears to become unwell at school then we will contact you in the normal way.
Should the schools be directed to fully close, parents will obviously be informed at the earliest possible opportunity.
We’d like to remind you that we operate a texting system to keep parents regularly up to date so please make sure we have up to date contact details for you.
Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the school.
Sonia White, Headteacher
