Coronavirus (Covid - 19)

Following advice from the UK Chief Medical Officers and Public Health England (PHE), Sapientia Education Trust would like to reassure all members of staff, students, parents and visitors to our premises, that we are monitoring the situation very carefully and taking all reasonable precautions in line with the advice from PHE. People returning to the UK from abroad, should refer to the Public Health England Guidance information - hyperlink below. This is especially important for schools where staff and pupils may have returned from any of the affected areas, in particular Northern Italy, after half-term.

Please check the page regularly as the advice is subject to ongoing review.

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.
