Dear Parents/Carers,

We have reached the end of what has been for some, a very difficult year, both in terms of the imposed lockdown and continuing difficulties for our families. Your support for our school has been much appreciated in these unprecedented times.

Unfortunately, we have had to forego the activities which would normally have taken place at the end of term, we particularly missed our Summer Fete and Sports day.

Latest Government Guidance on Social Distancing

Latest Government Guidance for households with possible coronavirus infection

Information Posted 16th March 2020

Dear parents and carers.

The coronavirus situation is moving along very quickly and I see the anxiety that many of you have. I want to reassure you that we are doing everything required to prevent the spread of the virus.

The advice now is if a person has a new cough OR fever above 37.8c (you don’t need both together) to isolate at home for 14 days, after which they should be better.

Feeling unwell by itself is not part of the guidance so sneezing or a runny nose without cough or fever doesn’t need self-isolation specifically.

A persistent cough means throughout the day not one cough in the morning etc.

If the cough persists in the mild form after 14 days with no other symptoms of fever and they have already self-isolated then the advice is they can go back to school or work.

In school we are taking precautionary measures to keep everyone safe. Assemblies have been cancelled and as the letter you received home today stipulates all trips and visits have been cancelled and review meeting in the next few weeks have been cancelled and will be rescheduled for later in the year. We are emphasising the importance of good hygiene to all staff and pupils and building hand washing firmly into our routines.

I will write to you all again later should there be any further developments during the day.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Wendy Killlilea
Head of St John’s RC School
