Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.

 

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus; make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus.

 

  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.

How can I support my child at home during school closures?

At King Edwin we have ensured that our high expectations of children’s learning can be maintain. We have done this through the use of various online platforms. Your child can access home learning through Purple Mash, Doodle Maths/English/Spelling, White Rose Maths, Times Table Rockstars and Microsoft Teams. Microsoft Teams has been set up for every class in school. This platform will be used to set assignments, share useful resources but more importantly we can communicate with you and your child through video calling. This is a great way for children to main relationships with staff and their peers.

What are the schools plans for re-opening to more pupils on Monday 1st June?

We have been working extremely hard behind the scenes to create a plan that we feel fits the needs and safety of our school community. We have carefully read all guidance given to us by the government and local authority. We have also shared images of some changes we have made to our school environment to support our plans on our facebook page.

Below are copies of all correspondence shared with our school community including our plans to re-open to more pupils on the 1st June 2020.
