The Importance of Hygiene

Personal hygiene is the most important way that we can tackle the spread of Coronavirus. This includes more frequent washing of hands and using the Catch It, Bin it, Kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes. All schools within the trust have given guidance to the children on personal hygiene and are monitoring them daily.

Guidance for washing hands can be found at the following locations:

Updates

Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of our legal responsibility to safeguard children, we would like to receive at least one communication a week (during normal term time) via email from every child so that we know they are okay. If we do not hear from you via email at least every week then we will call you to confirm all is well (otherwise we will report your child as ‘missing’ with the local authority). Please help us by logging in and messaging us once a week as a minimum (with the exception of the upcoming Easter break from Saturday 28th March until Tuesday 14th April).

Our current monitored email addresses are;

eyfsks1@illoganschool.co.uk

ks2@illoganschool.co.uk

With continued good wishes for your safety,

Mrs Jo Knuckey
