Following Boris Johnsons’ announcement last night, I need to update you on what to do if you or your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, or is in close contact with someone who has the symptoms of COVID-19 at home.
If your child develops the symptoms of COVID-19, which is specifically a continuous cough and/or high temperature, you will need to keep them at home for 14 days.
If you have someone in your home who is showing the symptoms of COVID-19 then your child will also need to stay at home for 14 days, even if they are symptom-free.
If your child develops symptoms while at school, we will contact you to ask you to take them home immediately.
I understand that this will be difficult for some of you and I very much appreciate us working together to limit the spread of this virus. I am sure you understand, that while school is open, staff cannot set work for individuals who are absent.
Please be assured that while your child is well and able to come to school, we are doing our utmost best to ensure that our premises are kept as clean as possible. The site team are working hard to thoroughly clean all high contact surfaces daily.
We are in an ever-changing dynamic situation and I will keep you updated as events change.
