Visiting China at Half Term? – Coronavirus update

We, along with all other schools in the UK, have been asked to share the following information with parents.  It is highly unlikely to be relevant to anyone associated with Holmfirth J I & N School but here is the advice

The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.

Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area.  See latest information and advice.

Advice for parents/guardians

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus. 

 There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal. 

We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.
