From Friday 13 March, the guidance to schools on managing the spread of coronavirus has changed.
People with symptoms are no longer asked to call NHS 111, but rather to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online.
Anyone with a ‘new, continuous’ cough or high temperature has been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for seven days.
There are no planned changes to timetables or school opening. All Spencer Academies Trust schools will continue to open as usual, and to take specific public health advice on a daily basis.
Planned overseas travel from schools has been suspended. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future, and does not affect planned trips within the UK at this time.
Information about the simple steps families can take to limit the spread of coronavirus is available here.

Welcome to Long Field Academy
Welcome to Long Field Academy. I hope you find our website full of useful information about our wonderful school. I have really enjoyed being the Principal here since September 2015. The school was recently recognised by OFSTED as good and provides a perfect balance of exciting teaching and learning with a wide range of support for our students combined with exciting opportunities beyond the curriculum. The school is small compared to most comprehensives and this ensures that all students are really well looked after and are well equipped for life in our World today.
Ours is a modern, forward-thinking school which embraces new opportunities within teaching and learning as well as offering a wealth of excellent extracurricular opportunities, some of which are unique to our school. If you would like to come and see the school in action, visit the secret reading room, water the cactus garden, look at the range of fantastic displays or just see the students working hard please get in touch.
Access from home, school emails, parents evening bookings and more.
Challenging and supporting all schools within the Trust on their journey to and beyond outstanding.
