From Friday 13 March, the guidance to schools on managing the spread of coronavirus has changed.
People with symptoms are no longer asked to call NHS 111, but rather to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online.
Anyone with a ‘new, continuous’ cough or high temperature has been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for seven days.
There are no planned changes to timetables or school opening. All Spencer Academies Trust schools will continue to open as usual, and to take specific public health advice on a daily basis.
Planned overseas travel from schools has been suspended. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future, and does not affect planned trips within the UK at this time.
Information about the simple steps families can take to limit the spread of coronavirus is available here.

Welcome to Inkersall Primary Academy
At Inkersall, we are committed to exceptional teaching and learning for children. We are creative and bold in our learning, with a curriculum shaped around encouraging children to ask searching questions. Together, we develop into independent and critical learners, with the strong foundations which encourage a lifelong love of learning, and the values to develop as compassionate and thoughtful members of the school community.
In addition to being a highly valued local school, Inkersall provides a professional learning community for teachers, parents and carers. Working to provide an exemplary education for local children, we partner with local schools, community groups and education providers under the umbrella of The Spencer Academies Trust.
