Dear parents, carers and friends.
You will all be aware of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the news. We take this seriously and are following Department of Education guidance on ensuring the on-going safety of pupils and staff. Yesterday the government communicated further advice and launched a helpline which I have included below. Please note that all educational establishments, including The Loyne, will remain open unless advised not to do so by Public Health England.

Regards
Susan
