The latest government advice is that if any member of a family show symptoms the whole household should self-isolate for 14 days. This is to help to protect others in the community.
Please see the current ‘Stay at home advice’ at the end of this letter.
Schools are currently instructed to stay open. If the situation changes we have organised a number of ways for your child/ren to work from home:
- Access to activities and work set online via Purple Mash. All children have taken home log-in details
- Work may come through via e-mail from Teachers2Parents.
- A pack of learning activities from Twinkl for each child in the school which will be coming home in the next day or two. This will be especially helpful if you do not have internet access or printing facilities. We are sending it home for all pupils who are self-isolating by post and for all other pupils by hand. This is for if they need to start self-isolating or the school is advised to close.
We continue to be vigilant around hygiene and handwashing and have taken other precautions including:
- Not attending school trips
- Having collective worship in class
- The vast majority of visitors to school are not coming in at this time
Please do contact us if you have any questions.

Tips for staying at home
It's important to stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading.
- try to keep at least 2 metres (3 steps) from other people in your home, particularly people over 70, or those with long-term health conditions
- ask friends, family and delivery services to deliver things like food shopping and medicines but leave them outside
- sleep alone, if possible
- regularly wash your hands with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds
- drink plenty of water and take paracetamol to help with your symptoms
- do not have visitors (ask people to leave deliveries outside)
- do not leave your home, for example to go for a walk, to school or to public places
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
