Coronavirus Impact

This page will be updated as regularly as possible with information regarding the spread of coronavirus, and its impact on school.

The attached letter outlines the current situation. 

letter from Head of School

School remains open as usual

As advised by the government, school will continue to operate so long as we have enough staff to do so safely. 

Parents are advised to read the government's guidance on staying at home in the case of suspected coronavirus infection. This is based on the most significant symptoms of:

  • new continuous cough, and/or
  • high temperature (37.8°C)

If children develop either of these symptoms, they should be kept at home for a period of 7 days from the onset of the symptoms. Full details are available here:

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection

Otherwise, activities will continue as normal until such time as the government advice changes.

It will not be possible for teachers to provide work for pupils to complete if being isolated at home, but you are encouraged to make use of available resources such as TTRockstars and the Purple Mash website. All children are being sent home with their individual log ins to both of these sites. 

Any further available information will be provided on this page as and when it is available.

Up-to-date information on the actions taken by Public Health England are available on their website: Public Health England
