Stay at home
- Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
- If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
- Wash your hands as soon as you get home
Do not meet others, even friends or family.
You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.Latest National Guidance - What to do if you have symptoms?
The latest national guidance and updates on Covid-19 can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/coronavirus
There has been a change in guidance provided in order to help protect others in your community if you are infectious.
Your whole family needs to stay at home and self-isolate for 14 days if anyone in your house has either:
• A high temperature, or;
• A new continuous cough.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact NHS 111 or your doctor to tell them you are infected unless your symptoms worsen or continue for more than 7 days. There will be no tests for people that are self-isolating with mild symptoms.

Cancellation of Visits
The Year 3/4 residential trip to Malham has been cancelled and postponed to the summer - we will be following advice of Public Health England as to whether this will need to be cancelled completely.
All other visits have been cancelled until further notice - we will try to rearrange as many as possible and try to refund any monies paid already once we have chance to resolve this with our insurers and withdraw funds which have already been banked. School will refund monies paid to parents once school is reopened. If we are able to do this before then, we will update parents affected as soon as we are in a position to do so.
