As a school we are in constant communication with Public Health England, the NHS and the Government regarding how we can make sure your child and your family are kept as safe as possible. The situation is changing and we will make sure any changes are relayed to you as quickly as possible.
We have continued to update risk assessments as the situation changes.
Our current safety risk assessment is here: Shenton C-19 Risk Assessment August 2021.pdf
Do not listen to social media or rumours.
Accurate information can be found on the World Health Organisation website or UK Government website. This includes what you can do to stay safe (also below), numbers of cases, and the situation across the world.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms
Stay at home and get a PCR test, if it is positive, isolate for 10 days:
- a high temperature
- a new, continuous cough
- a change in taste / smell
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.
Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP STOP THE SPREAD?
wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds
always wash your hands when you get home or into work
use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell
do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean
