Please be assured that we are receiving daily updates from Public Health England and the DfE regarding this matter and we are following their guidelines.

Symptoms of coronavirus

The symptoms of coronavirus are:


  •   a cough
  •   a high temperature
  •   shortness of breath


but these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness.

The symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as cold and flu.


Department for Education Coronavirus helpline

On Monday 3rd March the DfE launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:


Phone: 0800 046 8687

Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)


We ask all parents to help us by doing the following for the foreseeable future:


  • Provide up-to-date contacts to the school office
  • Re-iterate hand-washing instructions to children
  • If children have a temperature over 37.5 keep them off school and contact the coronavirus helpline on 0800 046 8687 or NHS 111
