    Published 25/02/20

    12 March 2020

    Brooke Weston Trust schools are monitoring the current situation regarding Covid-19 contingency planning carefully and seeking advice from relevant authorities.

    Further information will be published tomorrow in light of any decisions taken by Government this afternoon. All further communications will be published via our school websites.


    5 March 2020

    Dear Parents/Carers,

    We continue to monitor and follow the advice of Public Health England in relation to the COVID-19 virus. Personal hygiene continues to be promoted as the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more. We will continue to promote this in school. Please can you discuss the importance of this with your child at home to encourage thorough and frequent hand washing to help prevent the spread of all respiratory viruses.

    There are general principles anyone can follow to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses, including:

    • Washing your hands often - with soap and water, or use alcohol sanitiser if handwashing facilities are not available. This is particularly important after taking public transport.
    • Covering your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throwing the tissue in a bin. See Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
    • Pupils, students, staff and visitors should wash their hands:
      • before leaving home
      • on arrival at school
      • after using the toilet
      • at breaks and after sporting activities
      • before food preparation
      • before eating any food, including snacks
      • before leaving school
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands

    Thank you for continuing to work with us to safeguard the health of our communities.


    26 February 2020

    Dear Parents/Carers,

    Please be reassured that our school is following the guidance set out by Public Health England (PHE) regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). We strongly recommend that all parents/carers and students familiarise themselves with the guidance. We have instructed all our staff to do likewise. Our aim is that all members of our school communities are well informed and aware how to slow the spread of germs.

    The government stance remains that you should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching Coronavirus. There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their school as normal. However we would particularly urge you to read the Government advice regarding travellers returning to the UK.

    Latest Public Health England Guidance

    The latest guidance from Public Health England can be accessed through this link (click here).

    Latest NHS information

    The latest NHS information about how you can reduce the possible spread of infection can be found below, please check regularly for updates:

    Brooke Weston Trust will continue to monitor the situation and communicate any further advice that is released to schools. We understand you may have questions or concerns at this time, so please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish. Thank you for working with us to safeguard the health of our communities.

    Best wishes

    Angela Reynolds, Principal
