Coronavirus (COVID-19)

(Posted on 26/02/20)

Dear Parent/Carer

You might be aware that a number of schools have either closed or partially closed following concerns of staff and students returning from ski trips in Northern Italy.

These schools clearly will have taken advice from Public Health England and NHS111 and their own unique circumstances will have led them to make those decisions.  Our half term trips were to areas where no concerns have yet been raised and therefore we have no plans to close.

We will of course be monitoring the situation for future planned trips.

However, I thought I should send you the following information and guidance which may be helpful to you.  Obviously, this is an ever changing picture so it is worth checking the most up to date information daily on 

https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public which outlines the steps you should be taking.

There is currently no cause for concern at the school, but we will keep you informed about any developments and ensure we are keeping the school clean to prevent the spread of any virus.

The following information is accurate as I write but is clearly subject to change.
