We are aware that you will be concerned about COVID-19 and the impact that this will have on your families, schools and communities.
Schools are currently following guidance from Public Health England and the Department for Education.
The current guidance is for schools to remain open. School leaders will continue to follow this guidance unless there are issues around staffing levels which are linked to medical needs and their own self isolation. Current guidance states that if any member of a household has a new, ongoing cough or temperature, all members of that household should self-isolate for 14 days.
You will be aware that the situation is changing rapidly and would advise you to monitor the situation through news sources.
If you are concerned about the health of any member of your household and need urgent advice, please contact NHS 111 or go the website http://111nhs.uk/covid-19.
