COVID 19 School Closure Guide

As you may be aware already, the UK government has chosen to close schools in England from Monday 23rd March until further notice. The government has been very clear that “every child who can be safely cared for at home should be.”

Therefore, Whitehall Primary School will only be open for a small group of children to support our families who are key workers and to support our vulnerable children.

General Advice

In general terms, the government has requested that all UK citizens do the following:

  1. Work and learn from home where possible
  2. Practice social distancing, avoiding unnecessary social contact
  3. Practice good hygiene, washing hands regularly and avoiding touching your face
  4. Self-isolate the whole household for 14 days if you or a household member becomes ill with symptoms including a cough or a temperature
  5. Self-isolate for a period of approximately 12 weeks if you are over 70, have an underlying health condition, or if you are pregnant.

Please do take note of these requests and adapt your daily routines accordingly, as this will help to delay the spread of the virus and will save lives.

In terms of your child’s education, these measures will have a significant impact. We recognise that you or your child may be feeling anxious about the impact of school closures for them. As  a school, we are working hard to ensure that as far as possible your child is able to continue to engage with learning in a different way through the home learning provided on here, your support in this is appreciated
