Coronavirus Update 16/03/2020

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to update you on the current guidance in relation to the Coronavirus and how the school is responding to this. As you will be aware, the situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) is changing continually.

The following link will take you to the latest guidance from the Department of Health and social Care and Public Health England regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Please be reassured that we continue to follow all the advice from the relevant Government Departments.

In the event of a pupil or member of staff being diagnosed as having the virus, we will, of course, follow advice provided by the local Public Health England Health Protection Team which will be specific to an assessment of our circumstances and setting.

I appreciate that this is a concerning time given the heightened media attention at present around the virus, but please be assured that we will continue to monitor the situation very closely and will respond accordingly. It is obviously imperative for us to be cautious but to maintain a good sense of perspective at all times.

Thank you for your ongoing support and cooperation.

Yours sincerely

Jon Whitcombe

CEO Swale Academies Trust
