COVID-19: Advice & Information

Advice for parents and carers

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus and there is no reason why your children should not continue to attend school as normal.

 

What action you can take

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.  Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

You can do this by:

 

How to wash your hands properly

 

Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water. Watch this short NHS film for guidance:

Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.

 

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus; make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus.

 

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
