URGENT UPDATE
DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO SCHOOL UNLESS YOU ARE AN ESSENTIAL WORKER AND YOU HAVE NO ALTERNATIVE OPTION.
Some schools are choosing to open on an emergency basis. This is not free childcare.
Only where a parent is employed in an essential job AND their specific role is critical to the country's COVID-19 response AND there is no alternative childcare option available should children be sent to school.
If there is a second parent, or other suitable non-vulnerable person in the household, and they are not an essential worker they should look after children unless families make alternative arrangements.
If families do not act on this guidance, schools that are open may be overwhelmed and children will not be safe.

We follow national guidelines from Public Health England, and should we receive any advice about the current situation within the County, we will let you know. With this in mind, as per Government advice, should your child have a high temperature above 37.8 degrees or a new continuous cough, they must be self isolated for fourteen days. This means they will need to be kept within the home for this period of time. There is guidance on the Public Health England website on self isolation and attending the GP or hospital. Should you have any concerns about your child’s health we strongly advise you follow the advice of Public Health England.”
Please ensure your child knows to wash their hands regularly for at least 20 seconds. We have taught the children to wash their hands, with soap, whilst singing the ‘Happy Birthday’ song twice.
