Coronavirus - Latest Guidance

Please find below the latest guidance we have received about the Coronavirus: 


Coronavirus – Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers 


The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad. 


The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However, we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China. 


Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at: · https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/china · https://www.gov.uk/government/news/wuhan-novel-coronavirus-and-avian-flu-advice-fortravel-to-china

Advice for Parents/Guardians: 


You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus. There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal. 


If you are planning to travel abroad in the next few weeks and months, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice. 


What action you can take: 


A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus. Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses. 


As a school, we will be talking to the children about the importance of good handwashing and we will keep you updated with any further guidance as and when appropriate.

Contingency Action Plan  

At City of Rochester School we have a specific coronavirus contingency action plan in place, alongside our normal critical incident plan, which has been updated as we receive information and guidance from Public Health England.  We are also putting plans in place to ensure that we are as prepared as possible for a range of potential scenarios.
