Coronavirus

I hope the following information will help answer any questions you may have and allay any concerns.  Please also see other essential information.  We are currently open for children of critical workers, vulnerable children and children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 6.  Please note, due to social distancing requirements these sessions are full.  From Monday 29th June, we are extending this provision to all year groups.
 
To support the delay of the spread of the virus, if anyone in your household displays any symptoms then the whole household are to stay at home for 14 days. 
 
The symptoms are:
  • a high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)
  • a new continuous cough
  • loss of taste/sense of smell
You do not need to call NHS 111 to stay at home.  If your symptoms worsen during your stay at home period or are no better after 7 days contact NHS online.  If you have no internet access you should call NHS 111.  For a medical emergency dial 999.
 
Following Public Health England hygiene advice, all children have been taught our hand washing song (see below) to ensure they wash their hands with warm soapy water for at least 20 seconds. You may wish to practice this song at home.
 
We are continually monitoring the guidance and will update all Parents and Carers of our students through our website should there be any changes to the published advice.  The DfE are emailing us daily with information and we are also following the latest updates from Cornwall County Council.  If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to contact Ms Mills.  Alternatively you can phone the DfE hotline (details below).  This link from the BBC also explains the key information in a clear way.
 
As always, children are at the heart of every decision we make and we will do all we can to ensure their wellbeing.  You will find some 'home-learning' tips on the Class Pages of this website.  However, the most important thing is for children not to be anxious during this very difficult time.  Please take the opportunity to read the Coronavirus Book (see details below) to help them and if home learning becomes tricky, then use this as an opportunity to share the learning of life skills with your children such as cooking and gardening.
 
Stay safe, look out for one another and take care.
