Update 18th March
You will have heard the PM's update this evening that schools will be shut except to children of key workers and vulnerable children from Monday. We know this sounds scary and daunting. We will update you as soon as we know more tomorrow. Wishing you lots of love in this weird time!
Update - 17th March
As you will know from recent events, our school community, along with many others, is entering a period of prolonged uncertainty associated with the spread of the Coronavirus.
As I’m sure you will appreciate, we are currently dealing with a complex and rapidly changing situation. My first priority will always be the health, safety and well being of the pupils and staff in our school and more widely that of our families and the local community. Now more than ever, this remains our primary focus. Already in school we have taken measures such as:
Reminding children about the importance of hand washing and showing them how this is done.
Multiple daily cleaning of frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, light switches and keypads
Informing the children about the virus in an informative, factual manner, focusing on what is known and avoiding speculation.
Listening to children who are concerned and, as required, allowing discussion and the sharing of worries, clarifying misconceptions and challenging rumours.
Communicating any school specific advice to parents as and when this is necessary
At present any external clubs (not run by school staff) are being cancelled. We will continue to run school clubs for now.
We have further increased our response to hand washing and have conducted another assembly today for children regarding the importance of good hygiene.
We are asking parents to let us know if they work in a vital service - NHS, Ambulance Service, Fire, Police so we can get an idea of which families are potentially in need of support. If this is you, please let us know!
Please see the link below for direct information relating to the Coronavirus from the Government.
Update - 16th March
At the moment our school remains open as normal, however we appreciate that the situation is changing daily and we are committed to keeping you abreast of what we are doing in school in these exceptional and extraordinary times.
Our top priority is the safety of our pupils and staff
If any pupil develops suspected symptoms, such as a continuous cough or a high temperature, they should stay at home for seven (7) days. School should be notified in the usual way and further advice will be delivered at, and in response to, each individual case.
Since the UK has moved to its next stage in fighting against the pandemic, we urge our parents and carers and staff to follow the Public Health England Guidance and only use NHS 111 online service if suffering from the symptoms and those symptoms become difficult to manage and cope with, get worse or do not go after seven (7) days. In an emergency (life threatening) situation, dial 999.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions based on the latest advice provided by Public Health England and the Department for Education.
Guidance for good hygiene, which remains our best defence, is as follows:
Coronavirus – Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers
The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.
Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at:
Latest information and advice can also be found at:
Advice for parents/guardians
You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.
There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.
We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.
What action you can take
A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.
Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.
