Latest COVID-19 safety measures

As you are aware the school is following the latest NHS and Public Health England advice to combat the spread of infection. Each day, all schools are receiving a daily update with the latest information.

The Department for Education has launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687
Email: DfE.coronavirushelpline@education.gov.uk
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)

The government has stated that no school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless advised to do by Public Health England.

The best way to tackle the challenge posed by Coronavirus is by following public health authorities’ advice, for example on hand washing, and reducing the impact and spread of misinformation by relying on information from trusted sources, such as that on http://www.nhs.uk and https://www.gov.uk/
