Coronavirus / COVID-19

We would like to reassure parents and carers that we are following the guidance issued by the Department for Education in relation to Coronavirus / COVID-19.  Included with this week's newsletter is the information poster that we have displayed around school.  Teachers have spoken with their classes about the general importance of hand washing and 'catching' coughs and sneezes (not just in relation to this particular virus) and children are encouraged to wash their hands at key points in the school day.  We would appreciate your support in encouraging good habits at home as well.

The Department for Education says: "No school should close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England."

Please note: if St John's is instructed to close, we will notify everyone using our normal school closure protocols.
