We continue to review the ongoing situation with Coronavirus on a  daily basis and we update parents according to Government guidelines.

For more information and  guidance please click on this link: Government Guidance on Coronavirus - Covid-19

 Here you can find the latest guidance from the DfE (Department for Education) for Parents on keeping children safe from harm during COVID 19 outbreak.

In addition to the links above on the UK government’s response, the following information is taken from the Department for Education and Public Health England’s COVID-19: guidance for educational settings:

There is currently no vaccine to prevent COVID-19. The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed to the virus.

There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if hand washing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport

  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it

  • people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting

  • pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:

    • before leaving home

    • on arrival at school

    • after using the toilet

    • after breaks and sporting activities

    • before food preparation

    • before eating any food, including snacks

    • before leaving school

  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available

  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell

  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

  • if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment

  • see further information on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website

PHE has a suite of materials that contains public health advice about how you can help stop the spread of viruses, like those that cause COVID-19, by practicing good respiratory and hand hygiene. To access, download and share this information you will need to register for an account which only takes a couple of minutes.

Face masks for the general public, pupils or students, or staff are not recommended to protect from infection, as there is no evidence of benefit from their use outside healthcare environments.

The situation regarding NHS/Government advice is changing daily. Please follow this link https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/ for up to date changes.
