Government Coronavirus advice

The Government has advised that parents and carers 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.

The Government recognises 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.
