Symptoms and Self Isolation
The most common symptoms of Coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
1. recent onset of a new continuous cough
2. and/or high temperature (37.8)
If you have these symptoms, however mild, stay at home and do not leave your house for 7 days from when your symptoms started.
If you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms.
If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation.
If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact:
If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111. For a medical emergency dial 999.
NB:WE ARE ASKING ALL STUDENTS, PARENT/CARERS AND STAFF TO ADHERE TO THIS ADVICE TO HELP PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS WITHIN SCHOOL
Wash your hands more often than usual, for 20 seconds using soap and hot water.
Hand washing is particularly important after coughing, sneezing and blowing your nose, or after being in public areas where other people are doing so.
Use hand sanitiser if you do not have access to soap and water
NB: WE CURRENTLY HAVE PLENTY OF STOCK AND HAND WASHING MATERIALS FOR ALL CHILDREN AND STAFF
Sneezing and Coughing
To reduce the spread of germs when you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue, or your sleeve (not your hands) if you don't have a tissue.
If you use a tissue, throw the tissue away immediately.
Wash your hands or use a hand sanitising gel after sneezing/coughing.
NB: WE ARE ASKING ALL CHILDREN, PARENT/CARERS AND STAFF TO ADHERE TO THIS ADVICE TO HELP PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS WITHIN SCHOOL
Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
NB: WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED AN ENHANCED CLEANING REGIME, PARTICULARLY AROUND HIGH RISK AREAS SUCH AS DESKS, TOILETS AND DOOR HANDLES. WE HAVE STOCKED UP ON REQUIRED CLEANING PRODUCTS/MATERIALS.
As per Government and Public Health England advice our school remains open.
We are however making contingency plans which are reviewed regularly as the situation develops.
Depending on staffing levels due to new self-isolation advice. and or government advice/ directives, we may need to initiate:
1. A REDUCED TIMETABLE: for example we may need to cancel the extended day and after school clubs.
2. A FULL CLOSURE: Either due to national advice OR local advice should we have an outbreak within school.
To support this, we are continuing to prepare online materials to support the children at home as well as a pack of resources. We will also be sending home challenges and ideas for parents to implement.
We have resent home log in and passwords for our Purple Mash Virtual learning Platform.
We will continue to make use of the following methods to communicate any updates and / or changes to parents/ carers:
1. Text Message Service
3. School website
NB: the firstname.lastname@example.org email address will continue to be monitored daily even if the school closes.
To aid communication please could parents/ carers ensure we have the most up to date phone and email contact details.
