Latest Updates

Handwashing advice

It is essential that everyone washes their hands more often, using soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Hand washing with soap employs mechanical action that loosens bacteria and viruses from the skin, rinsing them into the drain. Drying hands afterwards makes the skin less hospitable to the virus. Hand sanitiser can be effective if soap is not available or the situation makes using soap less feasible (i.e. when outside) but using hand sanitiser provides none of the virus-destroying friction that rubbing your hands together and rinsing with water provides.

Please see the latest guidance and video on handwashing from the NHS.

The e-Bug project is led by Public Health England and has a dedicated webpage for learning resources on hand washing and respiratory hygiene. E-Bug has published posters on hand hygiene, and covering coughs and sneezes, to display in bathrooms, classrooms and shared spaces.

 School Crossing Patrol

1 July

The school crossing patrol on Hurst Road at the junction of Dorchester Avenue will recommence today.  Fiona will be working during the following times: 8.30 am to 9.15 am and 2.40 pm to 3.25 pm.

Parents should be aware of the following:

  • There will be green boxes/lines painted on the pavement. If the School crossing patrol is standing within the green box – children and parents should remain outside of it.
  • At busy times, the patrol may need to stand on the opposite pavement to normal. It is really important that parents and carers are holding the hands of younger children, as the patrol will not be able to stop them running into the road.
  • All patrols have been informed they are not allowed to stop and chat while on duty.
  • Patrols are not going to wait for a group to form, before stopping traffic. They will get pedestrians across the road as promptly and safely as possible.
  • Please follow the patrol’s instructions when crossing the road. Do not step out until they say it is safe to do so, as this causes confusion, frustration and danger to other road users.

Get Well Soon Derek

Families who use the Dorchester Avenue entrance will all want to join me, I'm sure, in wishing Derek our crossing patrol man a speedy recovery from his recent operation and period of ill health.  Get well soon Derek, we all miss you.
