Coronavirus

As there is a lot of information in the media at the moment, and a lot of confusion, about the coronavirus we thought it would be helpful to share the Public Health England advice so that you have the facts. 

As school is a busy public space we are advising everyone to use tissues when they cough or sneeze and wash their hands with the antibacterial soap and water in school regularly. 

Catch It, Bin It, Kill It

In addition to this we have provided each class with anti-bac gel and also displayed the Public Health England update posters in main reception.

Finally the DfE have launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education.  Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 08000468687

Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk

Opening hours: 8am to 6pm – Monday to Friday

We hope this is of help to you and please rest assured that at this time there is no issue in school around the coronavirus.

Below is a link to current Public Health England advice for places of education:

No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.
