Today's Assembly 26.2.2020

Dear Parents,

This morning I led an assembly with the children about the Coronavirus.

The aim of the assembly was to explain some of the facts about the virus and to reassure them that there are steps we can take to mitigate the risk of contracting it.

I used information that has been sent to schools from Public Health England to create a Power Point presentation, to structure the assembly.

I spent time discussing with the children, good practises with regard to coughing, sneezing and hand hygiene.  

I reiterated to the children that if they need to cough or sneeze, they should follow the NHS guidelines of ‘Catch it, bin it, kill it.’

The children should cough or sneeze into a tissue, dispose of the tissue and then wash their hands.

If this is not possible, they should cough/sneeze into the crook of their bent arm, into their elbow or their hands, rather than coughing or sneezing into the air.

I then discussed how best to wash our hands and played the children an NHS video clip about good hand hygiene.

Please see the attached slide show to see the presentation that I used in today’s assembly.


With best wishes,

Simon Watts

Deputy Headteacher
