The Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19. Following this update from the government, we would like to advise:
Staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste to avoid spreading infection to others.
If staff or children become unwell at school with a new, continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste they will be sent home.
Anyone living with someone showing the symptoms should self-isolate for 14 days.
The Government still want schools to stay open.
We should avoid unnecessary social contact.
If you need to enter the school building, please make an appointment and only enter the school building through the main entrance to the school office. If your query can be managed by phone or online, then please use this form of communication.
As a school, we have been planning for the need for individual children or groups to self-isolate. We have been putting plans in place for the children to be able to access learning using Microsoft Teams.
The safety of all staff and pupils is our main priority and we will act in the best interest to ensure this. If you feel you or your family are vulnerable and self isolation is the best course of action the school will support this. This applies for both staff and families within the community.
