Dear Parents and Carers,

 

INFORMATION FOR PARENTS AND CARERS REGARDING CORONOVIRUS

The advice has evolved for travellers recently returning from lockdown areas in Italy and around the world. If you have travelled from these areas, please note the guidance now suggests isolation and contacting NHS 111 for advice. Travellers returning from areas surrounding hotspots are advised to isolate and call NHS 111 if experiencing mild symptoms. Below are two links, the Government website and an Italian news site in English showing affected areas. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-information-for-the-public

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DISCUSS WITH YOUR CHILD THE IMPORTANCE OF REGULAR HAND WASHING AND USING ANTI BACTERIAL HAND GEL. WE WILL BE REMINDING THE CHILDREN OF THIS IN SCHOOL.

 

IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS PLEASE CONTACT PUBLIC HEALTH OR NHS 111 IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS. AS A SCHOOL, THAT IS WHAT WE ARE DOING AS THEY HAVE THE LATEST ADVICE AND INFORMATION.
