Dear Parents and Carers,

As you are aware the UK government are now issuing daily updates and advice from the Chief Medical and Scientific Officers.

At Spring Hill, we are working hard to react to each update and this is happening, at times, on an hourly basis.

The key advice at the moment is:

  1. Schools will not be closed unless we receive a direct instruction from the Local Authority or Central Government;
  2. Any person showing symptoms of the coronavirus should self-isolate for 14 days;
  3. If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days;

If your child has a persistent cough and a high temperature they should not come into school. Likewise, if your child develops a persistent cough and high temperature whilst in school we will call you immediately to collect your child.

The safety and welfare of our children and our school community is paramount.

We will update you via our school website and text message as required.

Kind regards,

Mr S Tonge

Headteacher
