Latest Department for Education information:
We have led a special assembly on cleanliness and handwashing and teachers have also taught lessons within class. We are addressing any misconceptions about the virus as they arise so that children are not unnecessarily anxious or worried. You will also notice that we have increased the number of hand washing opportunities, however we wanted to make you aware that this means that some of the children are getting dry hands and you may wish to apply cream at night to help this.
We have also began the process of considering plans for continuity of education should we need to close.
