Re: Coronavirus (COVID-19)

There is currently no cause for concern at the school, but we will keep you informed about any developments and ensure we are keeping the school clean to prevent the spread of any virus.


You are likely to be aware of the outbreak of Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in China and the subsequent confirmed cases in the UK. At Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School, we take the health and safety of our pupils and staff very seriously, so we’re sharing guidance from Public Health England with you.


The advice being given currently is that schools should not close in response to a suspected (or confirmed) COVID-19 case unless directed to do so by Public Health England.

The advice also states that we are to continue life as normal and to make sure everyone carries out the basic hygiene rules to stop the spread of any virus.


A new helpline to answer questions about COVID-19 related to education has been launched. Staff, parents and young people can contact the helpline as follows:

Phone: 0800 046 8687


Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday)


Prevent the spread of infection

Make sure you and your children follow these general principles to prevent spreading any respiratory virus:


  • Wash your hands often – with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, or an alcohol-based sanitiser if soap and water are not available

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin
