From Friday 13 March, the guidance to schools on managing the spread of coronavirus has changed.
People with symptoms are no longer asked to call NHS 111, but rather to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online.
Anyone with a ‘new, continuous’ cough or high temperature has been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for seven days.
There are no planned changes to timetables or school opening. All Spencer Academies Trust schools will continue to open as usual, and to take specific public health advice on a daily basis.
Planned overseas travel from schools has been suspended. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future, and does not affect planned trips within the UK at this time.
Information about the simple steps families can take to limit the spread of coronavirus is available here.
