Preventing the spread of infection:

There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

  • washing your hands often - with soap and water or use alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport
  • covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See it, Catch it, Bin it, Kill it.

The school is keeping up to date with government guidance which will be communicated to parents and carers.
