The school has recently updated our website to share a link to the latest official information and advice about the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Based on the best current advice and information, there is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal. This letter includes the information we’ve had from the local Public Health team, which makes clear that you do not need to be unduly worried about the possibility that your children might catch the virus.
We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel abroad this Easter to countries where there is a higher risk of transmission. If so, please refer to the advice here.
To help prevent the potential spread of any infections, including Covid-19, Public Health England has launched the Catch it, Bin it, Kill It campaign. We would ask all parents, carers and their children to follow this advice: using a tissue to catch a sneeze, binning the tissue and washing our hands is the best way to stop the spread of germs and viruses.
I hope the information in this letter is useful and reassuring.
Across all of the National Autistic Society schools, we are following closely the advice and guidance issued by Public Health England and The Department of Education in regards to the risk posed by Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are frequently assessing and updating our position in line with the official response; our students’ welfare remains our priority first and foremost and we will keep you updated of any necessary developments.
Please refer to the latest government guidance for any concerns and queries you may have.
