Coronavirus Advice and Information

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus

Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.

 

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you've started coughing repeatedly

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

 

Urgent advice:Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Use the 111 coronavirus service

 

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

This helpline has been set up to answer questions about the virus related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline.

Coronavirus School Closure Procedure

Our school will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply: 

  • on instruction from the Department for Education.
  • on advice, if there is a confirmed case within our school community.

 

Steps taken to decide on whether to close the school will be as follows:

  • The Executive Headteacher will liaise with the Local Authority, and Chair of Governors and a joint decision will be made whether the school should be open or not should it not be under instruction from central government. 

Should the school need to close for any reason we will follow our normal school closure procedures. This will be communicated to staff and parents via Parentmail & the school website as soon as the decision is made.

 

Home Learning

In the event of school closure, plans have been put in place for your children's continued education. Work will be provided to take home with the pupils.
