Keeping children safe at Burnt Oak
Please be advised that we continue to follow the guidance issued by the Government and Public Health England in relation to Coronavirus.
The government and the NHS have updated the advice on COVID-19.
If anyone in your household has a symptom of coronavirus COVID-19 (common symptoms are a new continuous cough and/or a high temperature) then that person must self-isolate for seven days.
All other household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14 day household-isolation period starts from the day the first person in the house became ill. If your child develops symptoms whilst they are in school or discloses that a household member has the symptoms we will contact you to collect them and advise that you keep them at home for the isolation period.
If a household member then develops coronavirus COVID-19 symptoms during the 14 day household-isolation period then they must start a self-isolation period of seven days from the onset of symptoms.
If you are self-isolating and wish to continue learning at home please go to our Children's and Home Learning pages where you will find lots of online activities.
