Behaviour Policy 2020 COVID

Coronavirus - what you need to know!

 

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – don’t go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.

 

Department for Education Coronavirus helpline - this helpline has been set up to answer questions about the virus related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline.

We are committed as a school to supporting the national effort to ensure key workers can continue to do their jobs. At the same time, we need to balance this with the need to reduce social contact. The reason behind the Government’s decision to close schools was to stop the spread of the coronavirus, COVID-19. 

 

IF CHILDREN CAN STAY SAFELY AT HOME, THEY SHOULD DO SO TO LIMIT THE CHANCE OF THE VIRUS SPREADING. 

 

The fewer children making the journey to school and the fewer children in educational settings, the lower the risk and death rate across the country will be. The school’s stance is for children to stay at home wherever possible until we beat this pandemic. THE SCHOOL WILL REMAIN OPEN ONLY FOR THOSE CHILDREN THAT ABSOLUTELY NEED TO ATTEND.

 

First and foremost, however, the school’s view is that children should stay at home if at all possible.
