Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information
This website signposts you to updated information regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19). We are currently closed as a school but are providing Childcare for Key Workers critical to dealing with COVID-19. We are also providing childcare for vulnerable pupils where required - these include pupils with a social worker and pupils with an Educational Health Care Plan.
COVID-19 Coordination Hubs
Cambridgeshire County Council have established a network of COVID-19 Coordination and Response Hubs, comprising a countywide hub and local hubs led by District/City Councils. The Hubs will make sure that vulnerable people are supported, and that the offers of help and support from residents, communities, businesses and other organisations are properly coordinated. The Hubs have access to a wide range of volunteers as well as council staff available for redeployment into critical front line roles, and other vital resources that a household might not be able to access right now.
To reach the Countywide Hub, Monday to Sunday from 0800 to 1800, go to:

What are the Coronavirus Symptoms?
Coronavirus is a respiratory disease which seems to start with a fever, followed by a dry cough. After a week, it leads to shortness of breath and some patients require hospital treatment.
These symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness. They are similar to those for much more common viruses, such as colds and flu.
Catch it, Bin it, Kill it
To help prevent the potential spread of any infections, including Covid-19, the PHE has launched the Catch it, Bin it, Kill It campaign. Using a tissue to catch a sneeze, binning the tissue and washing your hands is the best way to stop the spread of any germs or viruses. We would ask all parents, carers and their children to follow this good hygiene to stop the spread of germs.
