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:

 

· washing hands often - with soap and water, or the use of hand sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available.  

· covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin.

· people who feel unwell should stay at home and should not attend work or any education or childcare setting

· children, staff and visitors should wash their hands:

  • before leaving home

  • on arrival at school

  • after using the toilet

  • after breaks and sporting activities

  • before food preparation

  • before eating any food, including snacks

  • before leaving school

 

If your child has any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.

 

Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.

 

We require your support with this in helping to combat the spread of the virus.  

 

The DfE coronavirus helpline is available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Parents can contact this helpline as follows:
