The government have released lots of advice for dealing with Coronavirus in an educational setting. For your information we have decided to put it all here.
It is also a good time to remind everyone the importance of washing their hands regularly using soap and warm water, especially after using the toilet and before eating.
For handwashing to be really effective, rub your hands together until the soapy lather appears. Then take time to rub each palm over the back of the other hand, rub between the fingers on each hand, rub around each of your thumbs and rub your hands with the fingers together. Finally rinse and dry your hands with a clean towel or hand dryer.
If you are washing your hands properly, you'll have time to sing 'Happy Birthday' twice while doing it.
More advice about handwashing can be found on the Health for Kids website:
or you could watch the 'Soaper Heroes' film
If we receive any further information it will be posted here.
