Coronavirus: DfE Advice for Schools, Parents & Carers

 

We continue to provide you with the most current and up to date guidance from the DfE so that we can work together as a community to keep each other safe. 

This link will take you to the most current advice. https://www.gov.uk/government/topical-events/coronavirus-covid-19-uk-government-response

 

We thank you for supporting us to ensure children and vulnerable groups are safe and We are able to prevent the spread of the virus.

Recent stay at home advice states:

If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

 

It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community.

 

PLEASE CONTINUE TO INFORM THE OFFICE WITH AN HONEST EVALUATION OF YOUR CHILD’S SYMPTOMS OR REASON FOR ABSENSE. This is so we can continue to safeguard both children and staff in school.

 

If your child has any underlying medical conditions, you should have heard from our school office. If you haven’t, please call us.

For parents/carers with a son or daughter with asthma please see this additional link below containing  advice and guidance on the coronavirus and asthma.
