ELING INFANT SCHOOL IS CURRENTLY OPEN TO THOSE CHILDREN OF KEY WORKERS, NURSERY, YEAR R AND YEAR 1.

 

This page will be updated on a regular basis.

 

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)

3. a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).

 

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.

 

If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact:

NHS 111 website or for a medical emergency dial 999.

 

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL CHILDREN ARE NOW ELIGIBLE FOR TESTING- IF THE TEST IS NEGATIVE THEN YOUR CHILD CAN RETURN TO SCHOOL.

 

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

 

Hand Washing

 

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. EACH CLASSROOM HAS ITS OWN CLEANING STATION.

 

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.
