Re: Coronavirus concerns
You’re likely aware of the outbreak of novel coronavirus and the subsequent confirmed cases in the UK. At All Saints, we take the health and safety of our pupils and staff very seriously, so we’re sharing guidance from Public Health England on steps you should be taking and the advice we are following.
There’s currently no cause for concern at the school, but we’ll keep you informed about any developments and ensure we’re keeping the school clean to prevent the spread of any virus.
A member of staff has returned from Rome, in Italy, this weekend; however this is not a category 1 or 2 area. We are advised in section 10 of the attached guidance ‘What to do if pupils, students or staff return from travel anywhere else in the world within the last 14 days’ as follows:
‘Currently there are minimal cases outside the risk areas and therefore the likelihood of an individual coming into contact with a confirmed case is low.
There is no need to advise any of these pupils, student or staff to avoid normal activities or educational settings unless they have had contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19.’
Read the advice in full here:
In school, we will continue to be vigilant in advising the children to wash their hands when needed and catch sneezes or coughs in a tissue.
Should you have any other questions, please contact the school office.
