We are doing all we can to keep up to date with all information coming to us from the DfE and the NHS. Please ensure you pay strict attention to the following guidelines to try to ensure that all children and staff remain safe:

* If your child has a temperature of above 37.8, they should remain off school for a minimum of 14 days.

* If your child has flu like symptoms including a new cough, they should remain off school for a minimum of 14 days.

* If your child has a persistent cough and NO temperature, they should remain off school for   a minimum of 14 days.

* If you feel your child needs paracetamol then they should be kept at home.

* If any member of the family has any of the above symptoms then your child should stay off school for 14 days

Advice is all those with underlying medical conditions and those who are vulnerable to illness especially asthma and lung conditions must practice social distancing for 3 months.

If you are unsure what this means for you please phone school or follow the link.

From Monday 23rd March school will open its doors as a day service for front line staff and those who are socially vulnerable.
We will NOT be open for those who are vulnerable due to health conditions.
We will operate as best as possible with a skeleton staff and provide all of the children who attend meaningful activities but we will not follow a timetable nor a curriculum.

Further information to follow.

Please ensure you contact the office as usual to report the absence.

Help us to keep our community as safe as possible.

14 day period.
