Coronavirus - Keeping one another healthy and safe
Last week we hit the half way point of this half term and many staff have spoken about how challenging it is at the moment. The ever changing picture of what is happening as a result of the spread of the coronavirus is an unprecedented concern and pressure for all of us. I want to re-assure everyone that our leadership team and our governing board know that the health of our children and our staff remains our number one priority.
We are keeping up to date with the daily advice being sent through from the Department for Education as well as from Children's Services Leeds and taking any actions necessary. Of course this is changing quickly and we will continue to keep you updated.
To support the delay of the spread of the virus, the Department for Health and Social Care has asked anyone who shows certain symptoms to stay at home for 14 days, regardless of whether they have travelled to affected areas. This means people should stay at home and avoid all but essential contact with others for 14 days from the point of displaying mild symptoms, to slow the spread of infection.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature (above 37.8°C)
For more information on the symptoms and what to do, please see the NHS website.
In the meantime we do what we do best which is to remain vigilant and look after one another by following the advice we receive from the experts.
I have no doubt the amazing team spirit that we have within HPS will ensure that we support one another without reservation. "When the going gets tough the tough get going!" 😊👍
