Coronavirus Update - Friday 13th March 2020

We are, understandably, receiving questions and concerns about Coronavirus and its impact on school and the children.  I am writing to update you as to what we are doing and the contingency in the event of closure.


At the time of writing, the school remains open and all children are expected to attend.  We continue to receive daily briefing emails from the Department for Education and we are following all advice given.  School will remain open until we are advised otherwise. We will continue to make sure that school is cleaned thoroughly everyday and that children have easy access to paper tissues, soap and, if possible, hand sanitiser.


As the UK government moves to the "delay" phase of its plan to tackle coronavirus, anyone with a new persistent cough or high temperature is now advised to self-isolate for seven days, even if the symptoms are mild.


It is important then that if your child shows signs of having a cough or a high temperature that you keep them at home with you for seven days. We also ask you to be sensible about whether to send children to school if there is someone else in the immediate family who has developed symptoms such as a cough or a high temperature and is self-isolating.


There is a possibility that if the situation develops further that school may have to close for a period of time. In the event of a school closure we will send a text message and we will put a message on our website.  We will keep you updated throughout any period of closure. To ensure good communication between school and home, please make sure that you have updated us with your current phone number and that you have downloaded the School App on your mobile phone. If you don’t receive a text message from school later today, then we don’t have your up to date number.


We are also preparing to organise work for children to do at home if school closes. We are hoping to prepare some paper based work packs for children to do at home and on our school website we will let you know of links to work that children can do online if they have access to the internet on laptops or tablets.


Although we will expect children to complete work that is given and return it, we will not be able to mark it in detail or give feedback.  We are relying on you as parents to support your children’s learning and give feedback on the work they do during any closure.


I would like to reiterate that we are following all advice given and our first priority, as always, is the health and wellbeing of the children.  


Thank you for your support.
