East Grinstead, West Sussex

COVID-19 update

Dear Parents and Carers,

Schools currently remain open and will aim to do so until advised by the Department for Education and Public Health England.

However following the latest government announcement, there has been a change to the advice on self-isolation and vulnerable groups.

If you and your child are well, please continue to come to school.

If you or anyone in your household is displaying symptoms then all members of the household should self-isolate for 14 days.

The symptoms are: a new persistent cough and/or a high temperature.

The following groups are also requested to remain at home.

  • Age >70
  • Adults who are eligible for a free flu vaccination due to a long-term health condition
  • Those who are immunocompromised

For further information, please visit the West Sussex County Council website - which also includes links to the latest government advice.

Unfortunately, we have decided to cancel the Spring Fair on Friday so there is no need to send in any money with children on this day. For those parents that it affects, we will not be able to hold ILP meetings this term. ILPs will be sent out electronically for your review and comments. End of term learning visits such as the Year 3 and 4 Fashion Show and Year 5 and 6 sharing afternoon have also had to be postponed. This is because we have been advised to limit the number of visitors into the school.

This is a fast moving situation and we will continue to update when we have more information. I would like to thank you for your ongoing understanding and support at this uncertain time.

Best wishes,

Mel Collier
