Dear Parents and Carers, 17.03.2020
Following the announcement made by the Government on the 16th March please see below revised guidance from the Stay at Home website:
if you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill
it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

The advice regarding schools to stay open remains the same. We will continue to update you regularly with regards to our schools position in order to enable you to choose how best to safeguard the health of your children and family.
We are remain open and continue to be extra vigilant re hygiene procedures:
All staff are ensuring that children wash hands regularly and that tissues are readily available. .
We are not holding whole school assemblies at the moment in order to reduce the number of times children are congregated in larger than necessary groups.
We will as always be encouraging children to be outdoors at lunch and playtimes.
We are aiming to take particular care of any staff who are vulnerable at this time.
If your child is at home and well enough and you wish to support their learning we recommend that you: play board games, scrabble, dominoes, card games, read lots of books, paint, draw, write stories, learn times tables, etc but keep it fun.
We appreciate what great inconvenience this is going to cause over the coming weeks, however for the sake of everyone in our locality, we must encourage and support self isolation where appropriate.
