Coronavirus – advice for parents and 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
school as normal.
What are the signs and symptoms of Coronavirus?
Symptoms include fever and respiratory symptoms including coughing, sneezing, chest tightness and shortness of breath. If you have visited China in the last 14 days and develop a fever, difficulty breathing or a cough, call your GP or ring 111 informing them of your recent travel to the city. If you have been to Wuhan in the last 14 days, advice is to stay indoors and avoid contact with others where possible, call your GP or ring 111 informing them of your symptoms and your recent travel to the city.
What should I do?
Practicing good hand hygiene can help to slow the spread of the virus and protect people from getting infected.
Please make sure that you and your children:
· always carry tissues and use them to catch coughs and sneezes, and bin the tissue
· wash hands with soap and water, or use sanitiser gel, to kill germs

Calling parents/carers of preschool children.
We welcome our school, parish and local community to our regular parent and toddler group on a Wednesday morning. There is no cost attached, it is simply a chance to meet other parents of preschool children and an opportunity for your child to play and explore. Our Learning Mentor, will be on hand every week to chat and offer support, or just to make you a cup of tea.If you have friends or family with young children, please encourage them to come along and bring a friend. There is no expectation that you have a child currently at St Joseph’s; for us this is a service and a way of reaching out to our local and parish community. If you would like to join us then please call or visit the school office to ask for details.
Please do join us, it’s completely free and will run as a drop in, so no regular commitment is needed.
We had an interesting visit from the NSPCC who put on an assembly to discuss Childline with the children. If you would like to find out more or get involved with some of their activities follow the links below.
At St Joseph's, we are proud to play our part in the local community. As well as links with our parish church and other local schools, we take part in the annual Brighton Festival Children's Parade and other events such as Let's Dance, which is a fantastic way to engage with the local community.
