Update on COVID-19/Coronavirus

16th Mar 2020 


We we are sorry for any inconvenience the short notice for this weeks closures may cause but we are conscious that in the event of long term school closing we want children to have some work for home. Staff will be working hard to prepare learning materials for the children.

Whilst we have moved 3 staff development days it should be noted that no word has come from the Department of Education. We will, of course, be communicating with you in as timely a manner as possible. 

We thank you for you patience in this and remind you to follow the from the PHA. 

Key points:
• Children should be kept at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend as normal

• If staff, young people or children become unwell on a school or educational site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home.

• Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual using your regular cleaning products.

• Supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands more often than usual for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or hand sanitiser and that they catch coughs and sneezes in tissues and then bin these tissues (this is our catch it, bin it, kill it approach).


Stay safe.
