Frequently asked questions.
What is Coronavirus (COVID-19)?
COVID-19 is a new illness that can affect your lungs and airways. It’s caused by a virus called coronavirus.
Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home if you have either:
- A high temperature (38◦ or above)
- A new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
If you live with others and you are the first in the household to have symptoms of coronavirus, then you must stay at home for 7 days, but all other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.
How long is school closed for?
The school is closed from Friday 20th March at 3.15pm until further notice. This decision has been made by the government and we will continue to follow their guidance.
Can my child/ren still attend school?
The school will still be open for pupils of keyworkers who cannot keep their child safe at home. You must notify the school if you believe you are a key worker, and children who are identified as the most vulnerable (those with a social worker) and those with an Educational Health Care Plan, will be notified by the school.
Who is classed as a keyworker?
Keyworkers include Health and social care workers, education and childcare workers, key public service workers, local and national government workers, public and national security workers, transport workers, utility services and those in the food and necessary goods industry.

All children have been given, or delivered, a home learning pack, which also includes online logins for remote learning websites. This covers two weeks out of school. We will notify you with further learning support as we go forward.
