A letter will be sent home today with the following advice:

You will no doubt be aware of the most recent guidance offered by Public Health England and central government. You will know that schools are not advised to close at this time. We will be following the recommended policy from Public Health England of self-isolation for our staff should symptoms become apparent. Symptoms include a new and persistent cough and/or a high-temperature. We expect parents to heed the advice of Public Health England and monitor all children for these symptoms and ensure that pupils do not attend school for a period of seven days from when the cough/fever appears and for you to advise school of this self-isolation. We expect further updates from Public Health England in the coming days and weeks and we will respond accordingly to their advice. We also receive daily updates from the Department for Education.
