Coronavirus Update – Please read carefully – 17/03/20
Following updated advice from the government, we would like to advise you:
The updated advice can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19/guidance-to-educational-settings-about-covid-19
We would ask, at this point, that you only enter the school premises if it is essential to do so and when you do, please wash your hands in the accessibility toilet before you enter the main school. If your query can be managed by phone or online, please use this form of communication.
The current government advice remains in place regarding school closures: 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. Decisions on future advice to education or children’s social care settings will be taken based on the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children are a lower risk group.
I would like to reassure you that we are taking all the necessary advice from the government, the St Ralph Sherwin CMAT and other sources, to ensure that we reduce the chance of spreading infection within our community.
Thank you again for your understanding and ongoing support.
With best wishes,
