Coronavirus Advice and Information

Dear Parents and Carers

 

We are sending this message as a result of the PM's speech last night. We still await official advice and guidance from the Department of Education about reopening school, and we will communicate with you as soon as we can, putting into place our recovery plans. We know no more than you at this moment in time and we will liaise with the government and our Governors then provide you with our plans asap. We will be unable to take calls about this so please continue to be patient and bear with us as we try to work out how this will work for the children of Victoria. The Key worker provision we have in place remains the same until we receive other advice. If we do reopen in June then we need time to make it as safe and as straightforward as we can. Most importantly, stay safe and we will let you know the plan as soon as are able to.

 

Best wishes
Victoria Community School

You can help to slow the spread of Coronavirus!

  • Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:
  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water aren’t available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • If you feel unwell, stay at home and don’t attend work or school.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces in the home.
  • If you’re worried about your symptoms, please call NHS 111 – do not go directly to your GP or other healthcare environment.
