Hello everyone,

As you will all be aware by now Coronavirus will not be going away anytime soon. Our Prime Minister has agreed to keep schools open. So it is pretty much business as usual. We will continue delivering the message around personal hygiene and the importance of washing hands.

The significant change however is that if your child displays symptoms such as a cough or cold or a raised temperature they should not leave home for seven days. This is called self isolating. People staying home for seven days should stay at least two metres away from people whenever possible. They should continue to wash hands regularly for 20 seconds.

Can we kindly request that you follow these guidelines completely. If children do start displaying the above symptoms in school we will contact you and request that you follow the above guidelines. We will require you to pick up your child immediately.

We will continue to adapt our procedures in light of escalation of the virus. For the remainder of the Spring Term we will be stopping whole school assemblies on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. This sadly will also include 3P4 class assembly scheduled for Friday 20th March.

As we receive updates from the DFE and Public Health England we will provide you with updates. In the meantime “Keep washing those hands”.
