We have been asked to issue the following advice from Public Health England about the Coronavirus.
Advice for parents/guardians
You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.
There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.
We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.
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.
The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.
Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at:

December has been such a wonderful month for fundraising for the Pre-School and we need to say a BIG THANK YOU to some wonderful people and businesses.
Thank you to Mike at the Butchers Block for donating 2 vouchers and Aspire Dance for their voucher. These all went into our Christmas Hamper Raffles at the nativities, where we raised over £200!
Thank you to the grandparent that provided her time and the resources for so many of us to enjoy wreath making – the courses, along with the extra wreaths sold at the Victorian Evening raised almost £250!
Thank you to the staff who have worked really hard this term (and every term!) and have supported our fundraising efforts. Particularly the staff who ran the stall at the Victorian Evening and helped us raise £250 from the tombola and the lucky dip. Another fantastic night!
And lastly, thank you to the parents, friends, relatives and children who donated prizes, bought tickets and supported our Pre-Schools! Thank you for your generosity and we hope you all have a very merry Christmas.
