The government is updating advice daily and I am writing in regards to the schools response to these updates.
It is clear that the number of cases of the virus are spreading rapidly. Because of this rapid spread and on consideration of government advice I am asking you to help us keep the school safe by doing the following:
Unfortunately we have been unable, despite an early order, to obtain any hand sanitiser for the school. We have increased the soap and hand towels available to all the children, to ensure that they have the resources they need.
Once again, should you wish for your child to bring in their own hand gel sanitiser, this is acceptable, should they be able to apply this independently and it is clearly labelled with their name and class. No other non-prescribed medicines such as lip balm/cough sweets should be brought into school.
Please be aware that although transmission is unlikely at this stage and most young people are not at high risk, we do have students, staff and extended family members who are vulnerable and are at high risk if they come into contact with the virus.
We will continue to follow government advice and update you as necessary.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs H Roberts
