Updated on 17th March 2020 (Guidance updated: Self-isolation changed from seven days to fourteen days)
We know you will be concerned about the issues raised by the spread of Coronavirus (Covid 19). We continue to follow the Government's guidance on taking appropriate steps to limit the impact on our school communities. As we formally move into the 'Delay' phase the advice is to continue to keep our schools open. The main important change is the new 'Stay at Home Guidance'
If a pupil has a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature they should stay at home for fourteen days and follow this guidance. If a pupil feels feels unwell whilst at school they should let Mrs Kendall, Student Medical Hub Co-ordinator know straight away.
If you have any concerns at all you should look at all the published Governmental advice online. If you are still concerned or need medical assistance, consult your GP's surgery by phone, or ring the NHS 111 service.
Key Messages from the Government
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild infection
If you have symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home
do not leave your house for 14 days from when your symptoms started.
We do hope that you and your family remain well and we will update you if things develop.
We will keep you updated via the website, MyEd, Twitter and Facebook.
