Latest advice on staying safe
Please see our latest update dated 20th March 2020
Symptoms & Self Isolation (updated 17/3/20)
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:
- recent onset of a new continuous cough
- and/or high temperature.
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.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to call NHS 111 to go into self-isolation.
If your symptoms worsen during home isolation or are no better after 7 days, contact:
If you have no internet access, you should call NHS 111.
NB: WE ARE ASKING ALL STUDENTS, PARENTS/CARERS AND STAFF TO ADHERE TO THIS ADVICE TO HELP PREVENT ANY POSSIBLE SPREAD OF THE VIRUS WITHIN SCHOOL.
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 OF HAND WASHING MATERIALS FOR ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF.
Sneezing & 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.
NB: WE HAVE TISSUES AND HAND GEL AVAILABLE IN CLASSROOMS BUT WOULD BE HAPPY FOR PARENTS/CARERS TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH THEIR OWN PERSONAL PACK OF TISSUES IF DESIRED.
Clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces using your regular cleaning products to reduce the risk of passing the infection on to other people.
NB: WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED AN ENHANCED CLEANING REGIME, PARTICULARLY AROUND HIGH RISK AREAS SUCH AS DESKS, WORK TOPS, KEYBOARDS/MICE, DOOR HANDLES ETC. WE HAVE STOCKED UP ON REQUIRED CLEANING PRODUCTS/MATERIALS.
