Coronavirus (COVID 19) Update

I am writing to provide re-assurance to parents and carers about the impact of the coronavirus on the school.

The school continues to receive and follow daily advice and guidance from the Department for Education and Public Health England, on how to respond to the emerging issues in relation to the coronavirus.

Public Health England and the office of the Chief Medical Officer are clear in their advice that at the moment, no school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) coronavirus (COVID-19) case unless directed to do so by Public Health England. However, the advice and guidance to schools is updated regularly to respond to the changing situation and, as a school, we will respond to that advice. 

The specific national guidance issued in respect of schools is available online at

Your children will tell you that we have had a big push on regular hand washing and have removed shared cups from classroom sinks.

The Department for Education has also set up a Coronavirus helpline that parents and carers can contact to answer COVID-19 questions related to education. The helpline number is 0800 046 8687 and is available from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday.
