Ebola Virus – The following advice has been issued to Parents and Carers from the Department for Education concerning the Ebola Virus:
Parents/guardians should not be unduly worried about the possibility of their children catching the Ebola Virus. You may wish to use the following key points from the Public Health England advice to reassure them:
- The risk of Ebola arriving in the UK is low and to date there have been no cases of Ebola Virus Disease being contracted in the UK.
- Any person arriving in the UK having travelled from any Ebola affected countries will be screened. If they are free of symptoms they are not infectious so there should be no restrictions on their school attendance or normal activities.
- It is not possible to catch Ebola from a person who is not showing signs of being infected. It can only be caught by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person who is ill with the disease.
- There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend school or their early years setting as normal.
Further information on the Government’s response to the Ebola virus can be found on GOV.UK..
Change of Weather – The weather is starting to change and it’s getting muddy! We go outside in all weathers so please can you bring in wellies and a winter coat for your child/children.
We hope you all have a lovely half term! The Playhouse opens on the 3rd November. See you then!
