The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting any affected countries.
Parents and carers should not be unduly worried about the possibility of their children catching the Coronavirus. There is no reason why children should not continue to attend school as normal.
