Coronavirus (COVID-19) updates

We continue to closely monitor and implement any required action following the daily Government advice we are receiving. Regular updates from the Principal will be communicated to parents via email and also posted here.

Outline summary

  • The government have asked us to plan for Year 10 to have some face to face teaching next half term.
  • We are now starting the planning process to try to make this happen.
  • Safety of staff and students will be the priority.
  • We will be sending you our plans after the half term break so that you have a chance to let us know what you think. 

Six Villages must continue to only provide childcare for children of key workers and children who are considered vulnerable, as defined previously. We will continue to need to see the key worker ID for any child attending the provision for the first time. 

We thank you all for your support and patience during this unprecedented period, and assure you that Six Villages will continue to plan the way forward with the best interest of every child in mind.

Protecting yourself and others from coronavirus

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

What to do if you have coronavirus symptoms

Government advice about not leaving your home (self-isolation) and looking after yourself if you or someone you live with has symptoms.

Use the 111 online coronavirus service if you have either:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

These are the main symptoms of coronavirus.

The 111 online coronavirus service will ask about your symptoms and tell you what to do
