As you probably know, the Government have discussed measures with regard to the virus and have moved to Delay Phase in an effort to contain the spread of the virus.
We have sent you an email with various links and specific advice today.
We receive daily updates from the Department of Education and have not, as at today's date, been advised to close the school. We can only take that action if Kent County Council advise us to do so.
We also need to reiterate that we cannot authorise absence from school unless you have been advised by Public Health England to self isolate.
