Dear Parents/Carers,

Coronavirus update March 2020

I hope that you are well. I know that we are all concerned about the current Coronavirus outbreak. As
you will be aware, the Government are holding a COBRA meeting today to discuss their plans for
containing and managing the virus. As and when I receive any updates from the Local Authority (LA)
or Public Health England (PHE), I will share this information with you.

The Government acknowledge that the virus is likely to spread in a significant way. We do not yet
know what the next phase of the Governments’ plan may look like for the UK, and we continue to
follow LA, Department for Education (DfE) and PHE guidance regarding actions to be taken. As I am
sure you will understand it is very difficult to predict what might happen, but we have taken steps in
school to plan as best we can for potential future events.

At this present time, Marriotts School remains open as normal.
