Coronavirus update

Wednesday 18th March 2020

Dear parents and carers

During these uncertain times, it is vitally important that we all follow the NHS guidelines.  If you are keeping you child off as you or they are self isolating, please ensure you follow the daily guidance.  The current guidance can be found on the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

Children cannot return to school, even if they feel better or ok, unless the correct amount of self-isolation time has taken place.  As a school, we must insist in this to protect our whole school community. 

We are receiving an unprecedented amount of calls and will try to respond as soon as we can. 

The current advice is:

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
