If anyone in the school becomes unwell with a new and persistent cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of or change in their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), they will be sent home and advised to follow guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection which sets out that they should self-isolate for at least 7 days and should arrange to have a test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19) or call 119.

  • We are maintaining high standards of hygiene, including hand washing and regular cleaning and disinfection of surfaces within the school.

  • Government advice is that the risk to children themselves of becoming severely ill from coronavirus (COVID-19) is very low.  Maintaining a distance between people will reduce the risk of transmission.

  • There has been significant extra cleaning to all classrooms and cleaning is taking place throughout the day. Small adaptions have been made in terms of where furniture has been placed, where possible.

  • Children will be encouraged to wash their hands frequently and hand sanitiser is available in all classrooms and throughout the school. Tissues are provided in all areas and we promote the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach.

  • All visitors, including parents and carers, are expected to wear masks.
