Coronavirus Advice and Information

 You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus

Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.

 If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environments.

Coronavirus School Closure Procedure

Our school will only be closed if one or more of the following conditions apply:

  • on instruction from the Department for Education.
  • on advice, if there is a confirmed case within our school community. 

Steps taken to decide on whether to close the school will be as follows:

  • The Headteacher will liaise with the Local Authority, Warden Hill Infant School and Chair of Governors and a joint decision will be made whether the school should be open or not should it not be under instruction from central government. 

Should the school need to close for any reason we will follow our normal school closure procedures.  This will be communicated to staff and  parents via Parentmail & the school website as soon as the decision is made.  

Home Learning

In the event of school closure, plans have been put in place for your children's continued education.  Work will be provided to take home with the pupils.

Children have logins to our online resources such as Purple Mash, spellings, and the Learning Platform.  If they wish to explore these  at their leisure they can, though this is not enforced. Please check you have this information.
