Tuesday 17th March
As you will be aware Woodlea and St Andrews schools remain open. I would like to thank the pupils and parents who have remained calm as we work with this situation.
We are taking our advice and guidance from Public Health England, as we have done throughout the last two weeks. We are taking all practical measures to minimise the risks to pupils and staff. Maintaining good hygiene (especially hand washing) is very important. It is also important that anyone with symptoms that may be coronavirus (cough/ high temperature) stays at home for a period of 14 days. If there are siblings that cannot be kept separate from the pupil with symptoms, they should also stay at home for the 14 day period.
In line with government advice we will review all trips and activities on a case by case basis.
At Woodlea we are also cancelling events where a large number of additional people would be coming into school. These include the Mother’s Day Lunch, Charity Coffee Morning, Family Assemblies and the planned parents' evening; 31st March and 1st April.
No headteacher wants to send a message like this, but I hope that you will understand that we have made these difficult decisions in the best interests of our school community.
Thank you for your continued support.
Mrs Shorrocks and Mrs Corry
