Newsletter 18th March 2020
As a school we are continuing to keep up to date with the current guidance from the Local Authority and the Government and acting on this. Currently, there is no guidance surrounding any closure of school, but we are making preparations for every eventuality.
We are taking every precaution in school to keep the children safe and well. We are encouraging the children to watch their hands regularly and have moved assemblies to classrooms.
Your child will come home tonight with a pack from their teacher with work they can complete at home should we be required to close. The work includes some written work, workbooks to complete and online tasks the children can do. More information will follow tomorrow explaining where you can visit on our school website for help.
If your child was not in school today and able to pick up the work there will be an opportunity to pick the work up - information about this will be shared tomorrow.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home 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.
How long to stay at home
if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
