Many of you will have seen the significant developments in government guidance regarding Coronavirus. The following changes are effective from tomorrow, Tuesday 17th March:
If any family member has a persistent cough or temperature, they must now self isolate for 14 days. This self isolation must now include every person in your household. Please ensure that siblings of children with a cough or temperature also stay at home. They should remain in the house at all times and avoid contact with people outside of the immediate family.
It is only a matter of time before the new measures impact upon the attendance of staff. We have a number of staff who could be considered vulnerable in terms of their health and they may be advised to work from home within the next few days. If this happens we will inform you of any issues that might occur.
These are worrying times for our school and our community. However, we will continue to adhere to all guidance issued and will always put the health of pupils and staff first.
We are mindful that self isolation has the potential to present huge problems. Please contact us if you require any support.
Love and prayers to our school community.
