How you can help
The greatest support that you can offer is by being vigilant and that you are familiar with the latest government guidance on travel restrictions by following the below link.
The Government guidance for education setting contains some practical guidance on preventing spread, which we would like to share with all parents / guardians.
Preventing spread of infection
There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:
- washing your hands often – with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport
- covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
- people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting
- use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
- avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
- avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces
- if you are worried about your symptoms or those of a child or colleague, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment
If you do have any questions about your child’s learning, please email us using the following address to ensure that your quieres are forwarded to the appropriate place.
We appreciate your support.
