Parents will be aware of concerns following news of a small number of confirmed coronavirus patients in Europe, including in Northern Italy and Tenerife. This has coincided with the half term break, when many schools support students with travel including ski trips.
Chellaston Fields Spencer Academy has not supported half-term travel to areas where there are confirmed coronavirus diagnoses: however, we appreciate that parents may have arranged independent travel during half-term.
Government advice is that any families who have returned from Iran, specific areas of Northern Italy comprising thirteen towns south of Milan, identified areas in South Korea or in Hubei province in China in the last fourteen days should stay indoors and contact NHS 111. This advice applies whether or not there is anyone showing the flu-like symptoms associated with coronavirus in the home.
The Spencer Academies Trust continues to monitor NHS advice closely, and is acting under advice from Public Health England.
Advice available from Trust websites will be updated daily throughout the week beginning 24 February.

We are keen to create a high performing school, based on developing growth mindsets and an exciting and fun curriculum to serve our local community. In this school all children will learn in an environment that helps them to thrive and understand that their learning has no limits.
