As you must be aware, the government has updated its travel advice to say anyone returning from specific areas should stay indoors, avoid contact with people and contact NHS 111 even if they do not have symptoms. The areas which are highly affected are Northern Italy, Iran, South Korea, Wuhan and Hubei province in China, mainland China, Thailand, Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau and we are not allowed to have anyone enter our premises if you have returned from these areas. You must self-isolate yourself and family for 14 days as per the government advice.  

Please see below the latest guidance provided via Government regarding the spread of Coronavirus and travel:


As a precautionary measurement, we would really appreciate if parents inform us about their travel destinations. We hope you understand this as it is a worldwide issue and we must take every safety measure to ensure everyone here is protected.

 Thank you for your collaboration.

 Kind regards
