Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
Orwell Multi Academy Trust Schools have been following government guidance in relation to COVID-19 (Corona Virus) and will continue to do so. Current advice is that regular hand washing is the best form of protection against infection, and staff are regularly reinforcing this with the children. Guidance specifically states that no school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.
Yesterday the Department for Education (DfE) launched a new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:
Phone: 0800 046 8687
Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)
We shall continue to follow government guidance and will keep you updated with further information as it becomes available to us. We shall also be sending you a poster via ParentMail with useful information from Public Health England.
