COVID-19 Information

We’d like to reassure you that at Sir Francis Hill that we have taken the situation of COVID-19 very seriously and will continue to do so now restrictions and testing conditions have been lifted. We have, in line with the national picture, seen an increase in cases in recent weeks. 


What’s the current situation?

  • We continue to follow any guidance given from various agencies. This is only guidance, there are no mandatory requirements at the moment. 
  • We have Control Measures in place in school for staff. 
  • We no longer have a separate COVID19 Risk Assessment in place but will reconsider this if things change and we are guided to do so. 
  • The easing of restrictions means that there is no longer a legal requirement to isolate, however, if staff or children are ill with COVID and are not fit to attend school, we will ask them not to. 


What we’re doing to protect and support pupils and staff in school

  • Children and staff continue to be encouraged to wash their hands thoroughly at regular points during the day. We have hand sanitiser pumps in various places in school. We also have outdoor sinks with hot running water. 
  • Regular and thorough cleaning of the premises as has been through the whole period of time. 


What we need you to do

  • If you’ve recently changed your contact details, please inform the school office immediately with the updated details by calling 01522 520359 or emailing


If you have any questions

Please consult the:

  • School. Call 01522 520359 or email on  
  • NHS, if you want to know more about the symptoms of COVID19 Coronavirus. If you think you or your child may have the symptoms, use NHS 111 online if at all possible before calling 111.


The NHS guidance for COVID symptoms is: 

  • a high temperature or shivering (chills) – a high temperature means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
  • shortness of breath
  • feeling tired or exhausted
  • an aching body
  • a headache
  • a sore throat
  • a blocked or runny nose
  • loss of appetite
  • diarrhoea
  • feeling sick or being sick

The symptoms are very similar to symptoms of other illnesses, such as colds and flu.


We recommend that if your child is not well enough to come to school, please keep them at home. Testing of children is not advised however, if  your child tests positive for COVID, we ask that you keep them off school for three days. This will help minimise the spread of the virus. We are also advising that staff who test positive follow the NHS guidelines and stay away from work for 5 days or if they test negative, whichever comes first.

As ever, thank you for your continued support. We are very proud of the way in which our children have shown true resilience throughout this and you, as parents, have played the biggest part in this.
