Protecting our Vulnerable Pupils


If your child suffers with a condition that makes them vulnerable in this current pandemic, they should not attend the nursery until advised to do so. A chronic condition, including steroid treated asthma, is identified as having the potential for greater risk. In addition, if someone living in the same house is categorised as vulnerable in this way, then consider remaining at home.


Our levels of cleanliness, food preparation and hygiene systems are fantastic; we use an antiviral cleaner before and between sessions as well as the enhanced cleaning and handwashing practices of the moment. We are not using any transferable materials eg: playdough etc.

Please rest assured we are doing all we can to stay open, even if in the coming days, this means restricting numbers or age groups.

Thank you for your understanding and please email nursery to let me know if this affects your child attending the setting.


Very best wishes


Mandy Hooper

Advice to those who have travelled recently

Public Health England has changed the advice for individuals who have travelled recently as follows:

Travellers from Wuhan and Hubei Province

If you have travelled from Wuhan or Hubei Province to the UK in the last 14 days you should immediately:

  • stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the area

Please follow this advice even if you do not have symptoms of the virus.

Travellers from other parts of China and other specified areas

This advice applies to travellers who have returned to the UK from the following areas:

  • Elsewhere in China
  • Thailand
  • Japan
  • Republic of Korea
  • Hong Kong
  • Taiwan
  • Singapore
  • Malaysia
  • Macau

If you have returned to the UK from any of these areas in the last 14 days and develop symptoms of cough or fever or shortness of breath, you should immediately:

  • stay indoors and avoid contact with other people as you would with the flu
  • call NHS 111 to inform them of your recent travel to the country

Encouraging good hygiene

As always, if you have symptoms of a cold or flu, then there are measures you can take to stop germs:

  • always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • avoid close contact with people who are unwell.
