Covid 19 & Scarlet Fever

School Operations

The government continues to manage the risk of serious illness from the spread of the virus. There has been a movement away from stringent restrictions on everyone’s day-to-day lives, towards advising people on how to protect themselves and others, alongside targeted interventions to reduce risk. As COVID-19 becomes a virus that we learn to live with, there is now an imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education. 

Scarlet Fever has presented some risk in recent times. As a school we will try to reduce the risk of such illnesses spreading.

The priority is for schools to deliver face-to-face, high-quality education to all pupils. As such, hygiene routines are seen as imperative within the school. They are maintained and encouraged. All children are educated so that they comprehend and follow healthy washing and 'catch it, bin it, kill it' practices. Classrooms are ventilated to reduce the risk of people getting ill.
