Dear Parents and Carers,


The latest advice for schools that I have received today from the Department for Education is detailed below:



  • staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education or work as normal
  • if staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home
  • clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual using your standard cleaning products
  • supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues

This is no change to the advice that we gave out on Friday and the control measures that we have in place.  We request that you take the temperature of children if you are concerned about their health. If their temperature is 37.8◦ or above or they have a dry cough, the child needs to be isolated for 7 days. Thank you to those who rang in today to inform us that their children were isolating with symptoms. It is important that you make us aware of any of these symptoms so that we can monitor the impact of illness for the safeguarding of children and staff. It is inevitable that this will also impact on staff but we will do our best to keep school operating as best we can.


As always, I will keep you updated if there are any changes.

Best wishes


Mrs C Harrison

Head Teacher
