Corona virus update
17th March 2020
Dear Parent/ Carer,
RE: Coronavirus update
As you know the government yesterday issued new guidance regarding the Coronavirus. I would like to remind you that should any of your household develop symptoms of the Coronavirus it is essential that you take the advice of Public Health England. This currently is that you and all other household members self-isolate for 14 days. Children must not attend school.
If your child develops a temperature in school, we will also send them home immediately and expect you and your family to self-isolate for 14 days.
All our staff continue to work hard in ensuring there is a level of normality and continuity in the school. We are observing regular hand washing and hygiene routines. We also ask that parents refrain from entering the school building unless necessary.
At the time of writing our Early Bird club, After School club and Extra-curricular clubs continue to run as normal. This could change at short notice. We currently have a small number of staff who are unavailable to work which is not affecting our provision. If more staff become unavailable we may have to consider partial or full school closure in the future.
The following events in the school calendar are now cancelled:
Friday 20th March Mufti day- Bring and Easter Egg
Thursday 26th March Parents Evening
Friday 27th March PTA Bingo and Easter Egg Tombola
I would also like to quash any rumours that have been circulating that the school has identified cases of Corona virus. There are no families or staff within our school community who have tested positive to the virus. Rest assured, if this were to happen we would inform you promptly.
These are very challenging times and we are working very hard to stay positive and to keep your children safe. We are aware that all schools may be asked to close in the near future. Staff are preparing work and activities for the children when this happens. If you look at the year groups pages of our school website you will already find some of these activities.
Thank you for your continued support.
