Stockport Primary Behaviour Support Service have produced some really lovely online resources to support children’s wellbeing. Many children have found this lockdown really difficult and have low mood or difficulty understanding why they need to be inside and not have contact with their friends. If you follow this link you will be able to access free resources that can help.
Due to the lockdown announced by the Prime Minister on January 4th we are only open to children who have parents who are critical workers, vulnerable children and children with Special Educational Needs. Please contact school if you require a school place either by telephone on 0161 428 5445 or by email using email@example.com

Below is some advice from the NHS website about how to prevent the spread of flu;
‘Flu is very infectious and easily spread to other people. You’re more likely to give it to others in the first 5 days.
Flu is spread by germs from coughs and sneezes, which can live on hands and surfaces for 24 hours.
To reduce the risk of spreading flu:https://www.nhsimms.uk/FLU/information?Id=106054&Type=FLU
- Wash your hands often with warm water and soap
- Use tissues to trap germs when you cough or sneeze
- Bin used tissues as quickly as possible’

If your child is showing symptoms of Norovirus (vomiting or diarrhoea), the current advice is as follows
