Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to advise you that aside from Covid-19, winter viruses are beginning to arise in schools and nurseries in particular.

Many of our children at Baytree have vulnerable health conditions. As a school, we have an important role to play both in actively reducing the spread of infection in school and in the wider community.

Public Health England have developed useful resources that we hope will help prepare/avoid illness in our children and staff. Please see link below and the attached information sheet.

We would ask families to continue supporting us with this and to keep your child at home until they are well enough to attend school.

If you have any questions regarding any of this please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely

Kirsty Tudor
Health Lead – Baytree School
