The leadership team receive daily updates and advice from the Department of Education, informed by WHO and the UK chief medical officer, and act accordingly. Everyone who enters our building is being encouraged to use hand sanitiser provided or to wash their hands using soap and water, handwashing is now more regular and rigorous with our children. Signs are up around the centre with the latest advice from those who have returned from travelling or are feeling unwell.
But please help us to keep us all healthy and well.
Please do not enter our setting if you have recently travelled from countries identified as a risk, please do not enter nursery if you feel unwell, or have had close contact with someone self-isolating. We will do all we can to remain open but will be closely monitoring any changes in schools guidance and also the health and wellbeing of our staff team.
