Pupils at The Hammond School in Chester, Cheshire

Update - COVID-19

16/03/20

Please read below for an update from Principal Roscoe with regards to current events.

 

Dear all,
 
The Hammond prioritises the safety and well-being of its entire community above all else. We continue to follow daily advice from Public Health England and the Department for Education. Current advice is that no education setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case, unless advised to do so by Public Health England. The Hammond has no suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19.
 
The Prime Minister's briefing this afternoon advised people to self-isolate for 14 days if they, or anyone in their household, has a high temperature or a new and continuous cough. We will follow this advice for all of our pupils, students, and staff. 
 
We urge all members of our community to follow advice as regards washing hands and the Catch it, Bin it, Kill it advice for sneezing and coughing. We are encouraged to try not to touch our eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. 
 
If you have any concerns or questions please do contact a member of the office who will be more than happy to support.
 
Thank you again,
 
Jennifer Roscoe
