Dear Parents and Carers

We have been advised by Public Health England that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school setting. We are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. Years 3, 5 & 6 remains open and, providing your child remains well, they can continue to attend school as normal. We will keep this under review.

How to stop COVID-19 spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19

Do:
wash your hands with soap and water often do this for at least 20 seconds
use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
wash your hands as soon as you get home
cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

A letter from the office will be sent out shortly with further details on what to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with the office if you require any further information. Thank you again for your support and cooperation

  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue (or sleeve), then throwing the tissue in a bin.
