The Chief Medical Adviser and the Prime Minister have changed the advice about
self-isolation. In accordance with the new advice, if any member of your household shows a symptom of possible coronavirus (fever and/or persistent dry cough) then you will need to keep your child at home for 14 days, as the whole household needs to be isolated. If your child presents at school with either of these symptoms, then we will contact you and ask you to take your child home. Under these circumstances we will send work home so that your child can continue their education while in isolation. For more advice, which is frequently updated, please refer to

By following this advice and guidance it is hoped that it will help to delay the virus. We continue to follow the guidelines which have been issued to schools concerning the promotion of good hygiene and the regular washing of hands.
