Information about Coronavirus

We are aware that all families will be concerned about the spread of the Coronavirus across the UK. This page has been provided to give families key information about the Coronavirus and to provide you with regular updates in case the virus continues to spread nationwide.

What is the Coronavirus and what are the symptoms?

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a type of virus. As a group, coronaviruses are common across the world. COVID-19 is a new strain of coronavirus first identified in Wuhan City, China in January 2020.

The incubation period of COVID-19 is between 2 and 14 days. This means that if a person remains well 14 days after contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus, it is unlikely that they have been infected.

The following symptoms may develop in the 14 days after exposure to someone who has COVID-19 infection:

  • cough
  • difficulty in breathing
  • fever

Generally, these infections can cause more severe symptoms in people with weakened immune systems, older people, and those with long-term conditions like diabetes, cancer and chronic lung disease. There is no evidence that children are more affected than other age groups – very few cases have been reported in children.

Preventing the spread of infection:

The best way to prevent infection is through hygiene. Some general principles that help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses include:

  • washing your hands often with soap and water
  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
  • use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser that contains at least 60% alcohol if soap and water are not available
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces

If anyone is worried that they may be showing symptoms, please call NHS 111. Do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environments. Further information can be gained on the Public Health England Blog and the NHS UK website

Important information:

As a school, we follow Government advice and instruction regarding the Coronavirus. We will regularly update parents about our plans via this website page. If parents have any questions, please do contact us directly via the school office. As a school, we are doing everything that we can to ensure that no infection happens at the school. Children and staff are encouraged regularly to wash their hands throughout the day and full cleaning takes place daily as it should. Disinfectant spray is used on door handles and other objects that are commonly touched. We are continually educating the children about the virus to make them aware but also do not panic the children unnecessarily.

Covid Messages in Community Languages
Many thanks to our colleagues from Beech Hill Primary School who have produced voice-overs in different community languages to the helpful Covid-19 guides recently shared by Warden Hill Juniors.  Here are the videos for each language:
