Coronavirus update:
The government has moved to the 'delay' phase in managing the current virus pandemic.
At present, schools WILL NOT close unless directed to do so by Public Health England. Can all parents/carers ensure that their children wash their hands thoroughly before they come to school and we will ensure hands are washed regularly throughout the day. There is a link to a useful handwashing video and song below:

The DfE has opened a helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

The main messages are:

If your child has symptoms of coronavirus infection (COVID-19) such as a high temperature or new, continuous cough, however mild, they should stay at home for 7 days from when their symptoms started.
If symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days contact NHS 111 online. If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.

If you suspect a member of your family may have COVID-19 please inform the school so that we can take advice on how to proceed.
