Coronavirus Updates

Coronavirus Updates

To all our wonderful parents,

We have tried our very best to remain open as long as possible to support children of frontline workers, however we have now reached a point where we need to close for the time being.

I would like to thank all of our families for their emails and our Pre-school Committee for their on-going support during this unprecedented time.

We have loved working with your children and will miss them while Brampton & Hilltop Pre-Schools remain closed. 

I hope that you all remain safe and well and hope we are able to re-open as soon as we can.

Although the settings are now closed you can still contact me or Chris via email:

Sarah:  manager@portisheadpreschool.co.uk

Chris:   administrator@portisheadpreschool.co.uk

Best wishes, Sarah Bailey, Manager, Brampton & Hilltop Pre-schools

Coronavirus

Coronavirus

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:
