A story that might help childen who are anxious at the moment.

29th March 2020

Dave the Dog is Worried about Coronavirus

A Southampton intensive care nurse has created a book to help reduce anxiety in children caused by the Coronavirus outbreak. The free online publication, entitled ‘Dave the Dog is worried about coronavirus’, has already been downloaded 15,000 times and has received plenty of positive feedback. The book was written by Molly Watts, a staff nurse on the paediatric intensive care unit (PICU) at Southampton Children’s Hospital, who penned it after a nightshift last week.

The book for children and aims to give information without fear. With everything that is going on at the moment; big changes to children’s routines and lots of stories on the news it can be a really scary time for them. This book aims to open up the conversation about coronavirus and some of the things they might be hearing about it and provide truthful information in a reassuring and child friendly manner.

Coronavirus (Covid-19) New Information

19th March 2020

As I am sure you all now know we will be closing on Friday for the foreseeable future as directed by the Government.  We are currently awaiting confirmation from the Government of the key workers they want to be supported by schools, for example doctors, nurses and police officers etc by us continuing to take their children into school. 

We will be asking you to let us know as a matter of urgency if you are employed in any of these roles and whether you want your children to attend school.  This will enable us to only have the necessary number of staff in school to teach the children and keep them safe.  You do not have to send your children to school but you must make adequate arrangements for them to be cared for at home.  The Prime Minister was very clear that children 'should not be left' with grandparents or others in groups vulnerable to contracting the virus.

We will update the website during the day once this list of key workers is published.

In the meantime please ensure that you have read the most up to date guidance from the Government about social distancing and other measures you should take to keep yourself, your family and vulnerable members of our community safe.
