Coronavirus update

Today (Monday 16th March 2020) we had some more updates on the coronavirus and actions we should all take.


The key messages were :-

  • Avoid gatherings
  • Avoid public places (pubs, clubs, theatres etc.)
  • Work from home if possible
  • No unnecessary visits to care homes
  • By the weekend those with the most serious health conditions, the over 70's or pregnant women should avoid social contact for 12 weeks.
  • Serious health conditions = adults who would normally be advised to have the flu vaccine (such as those with a chronic illness).
  • If one person in a household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living in the house should stay at home for 14 days.


I understand this is a worrying time for us all.


Whilst schools are still open we will do everything we can to ensure all children in school are safe and happy.


I ask all families to continue to understand and respect that our staff have their own and their families health to consider and will also need to act as they see fit.


If your child is going to be absent from school because of the new advice or for ANY reason you must phone us on 0115 9324288.


I will be following every update and letting you know anything new or different.


If you have any questions, worries or are not sure what to do phone us or email us at or
