Covid 19 / Coronavirus
As you are aware the World Global Health Organisation has now declared that Covid-19 (Coronavirus) is now a Global Pandemic. Britain has now moved to the delay phase of the Government’s COVID-19 Action Plan. This is clearly a very challenging and unique situation and is causing much anxiety.
We will do our upmost best to keep the whole school, community safe. Here is our most recent school Risk Assessment.
The importance of hygiene
Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.
How to wash your hands properly
Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water. Watch this short NHS film for guidance: https://youtu.be/bQCP7waTRWU
Teach young children how to wash their hands with the NHS hand washing song:
Public Health England recommends that in addition to hand washing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
Chief Medical Officer Professor Chris Whitty said:
As we approach winter and inevitably spend more time indoors, we need the public to keep following this important advice to control the spread of the virus.
"Hands. Face. Space’ emphasises important elements of the guidance we want everybody to remember: wash your hands regularly, use a face covering when social distancing is not possible and try to keep your distance from those not in your household.
Following these simple steps could make a significant difference in reducing the transmission of COVID-19 and help protect you and your friends, colleagues and family from the virus."
