Dear Parents and Guardians,
This letter follows on from the newsletter we sent on 11th March and provides a further update for our school community.
The government has now said to stay at home for 7 days if you have either
- A high temperature
- A new continuous cough
Please see this link for further NHS information: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/
Please also see this document for detailed advice on when needing to stay at home and how to manage this: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-people-with-confirmed-or-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection
We are therefore writing to say if your child develops symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from the onset of their symptoms. Please let us know, as usual, if your son/daughter is needing to be absent from school.
Keeping you updated
Please be assured we continue to take advice from Public Health England and at any point they tell us there is a risk to our school community we will let you know as soon as we practically can.
Thank you for your ongoing support for the school and wider community.
Miss S E Hunter
