I am sure you will be aware that the government updated its guidance relating to Coronavirus (COVID-19) last week.
I want to reassure you that the school is following the advice of Public Health England (PHE), Department of Health and the Department for Education, to ensure the health and wellbeing of our whole school community, which is always our top priority.
We have been advised that anyone returning from the identified countries and experiencing specific health concerns, related symptoms or general medical enquiries should contact 111 straight away for advice.
I have linked guidance from the Department for Education on steps that can be taken to prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including Coronavirus here.
As a school, we are following these closely and encouraging all staff and pupils to follow the government’s advice. As you will see, maintaining high levels of personal hygiene including regularly washing hands. As you would expect, we already promote these practices within school, and we would appreciate your support in continuing to encourage the same at home. We will keep you updated on any further developments should the need arise, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 01322 433290.
