Coronavirus Advice and Information

Updated information from West Sussex County Council that we have been asked to share.

 

Schools currently remain open and will aim to do so until advised by the Department for Education and Public Health England.

However, following the latest Government announcement, there has been a change to the advice on self-isolation and vulnerable groups.

If you and your child are well, please continue to come to school.

If you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms then all members of the household should self-isolate for 14 days.

The symptoms are - a new persistent cough and/or a high temperature.

The following groups are also requested to remain at home -

  • Age 70+
  • Adults who are eligible for a free flu vaccination due to a long-term health condition
  • Those who are immunocompromised

This is a fast moving situation and we will continue to update when we have more information.

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:

  • Wash your hands often - with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren't available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don't attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you'r worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 - don't go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
