Covid-19

Coronavirus Information

 

Please find below information about Coronavirus (COVID-19) and advice from the Government relating to Walkley Primary School.

 

From Monday 11th January, Walkley Primary School is open for vulnerable pupils and the children of critical workers.

Walkley Primary School Nursery is open to all pupils. 

 

Greg Fell, Director of Public Health for Sheffield has stated: “The message is clear - we must stay at home, protect the NHS and save lives. This is a tough place for us all to be in because we’ve all done so much, but more than ever it’s so important to follow the rules. Remember hands, face, space and please follow the guidance by washing your hands for at least 20 seconds, wearing a face covering and staying 2 metres apart from people who you do not live with. If you develop symptoms, make sure you get tested. The current level of transmission and infection is just too high and so we must act to beat this virus and protect our loved ones.

“Each and every one of us has to do the right thing to help the NHS cope with this never seen before pressure. The only other thing I want to add is ‘thank you’ for doing what you have done until now and for continuing to fight for the safety of all of those around you. Please keep going.”

 

Management of a Suspected Case of Covid-19

Any children with coronavirus symptoms  MUST NOT attend school. These are:

  • a high temperature (above 37.8C)
  • a new continuous cough
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.

 

If they have any of these symptoms, or live with someone else who is symptomatic, they should stay at home and self-isolate for 10 days.  If your child develops any of these symptoms whilst they are at school you will be contacted and they will be sent home.
