We have received further advice from the DfE stating that schools and all educational settings will continue to remain open (16.03.20.) The DfE have stated
‘no education or children’s social care setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England’
If you do have any concerns about your child’s health please follow the advice below:
- If your child has any of the symptoms listed on the NHS111 website for COVID-19 please keep them off school and seek medical advice. Please inform school of the medical instructions you have been given. The advice states that young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education as normal
- Please also inform school if you child is being self-isolated due to other circumstances.
