Coronavirus Advice, Information and Updates 

 

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 are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • 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.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.

 

The latest guidance for all members of the public is if you develop a new and persistent cough or a high temperature to self isolate for 7 days. GPs will recommend you follow this advice if you call with any of the symptoms above.

We will, of course, communicate with you any changes as we are made aware of them, this will be via parentmail and our website.

We want to reassure you that we are taking this very seriously and are putting additional measures in place to protect our staff and pupils.

 

We are continuing with:

  • Children washing their hands on arrival at school
  • Children washing their hands before break time
  • Children washing their hands before lunch
  • Children washing their hands on the way in from lunch
  • Disinfectant wiping of tables / door handles / lockers and high touch traffic areas throughout the day.
  •  

We have a large stock of soaps, disinfectant sprays and antibacterial wipes along with toilet rolls and blue paper towels.

All staff are aware of the increased hygiene requirements and are monitoring and supporting children with these.  Mrs Lowe (NHS) has visited with the hand-washing light box ensuring that each and every child, and staff member, knows how to effectively wash their hands.

 

In addition to the above from Monday 16th March the following will apply:

  • No whole school collective worships
  • No sharing assemblies or cake raffles
  • All visitors to be asked to wash their hands on arrival at school
  • Events this side of Easter to be cancelled– Parent’s Eve, Year 6 Reading Evening & Easter Egg Bingo

We will of course keep in touch with you as this situation develops.

 

Please support us by ensuring the office has all of your up to date contact details, including mobile numbers, e-mail addresses and home addresses - especially if you have recently moved.
