Please be aware that until you are informed otherwise, school is open and operating as normal. As such, we expect all children to attend school unless they are showing the following symptoms:
If your child is displaying these symptoms, then they should now take steps to stay at home and not leave their house for seven days from when their symptoms started. This will help to protect others in the community while they are infectious. Anyone displaying symptoms should not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. Please report absence in the normal way by calling the school office.
