Coronavirus Advice

Advice for all early years providers, schools and further education providers.

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, we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.

Public Health England and the Foreign Office have issued advice for anyone travelling to the area. This can be found at: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/china

Advice for parents/guardians

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.

There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.

We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half-term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.

What action you can take?

A UK wide campaign has been launched to provide clear advice on how to slow the spread of Coronavirus.

Please help to support the campaign which promotes basic hygiene practices, such as regularly washing hands and always sneezing into a tissue, to stem the spread of viruses.

Languages Trip to Lille

Last Friday saw two coaches full of students headed across the channel for the world-famous Lille Christmas Markets, a couple of hours north of Paris, which were nothing short of spectacular again! Fortunately, the weather was kind to us in the end, and although it was cold it was nothing that delicious hot chocolate couldn’t fix. In fact, we were spoiled for choice in terms of food and drink offerings, with students (and staff!) indulging in crepes, waffles, macarons, and traditional French cheeses!

The trip gave pupils the opportunity to explore how Christmas is celebrated in France and to use their French language skills in a native environment. Another wonderful day was had by all and it really kick-started the festivities for us!

Students Win Life-Changing Mentor Scheme

Four students from Etone College in Nuneaton have been selected to take
part in a life-changing mentoring scheme with a world-class athlete mentor. The students have been chosen for the AQA Unlocking Potential programme, run by the exam board and education charity AQA and the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust.

The young people will be mentored by former Paralympic Skiier, Anna Turney. Etone is one of 20 schools selected to take part in this year’s programme AQA Unlocking Potential provides mentoring for young people aged 11 to 19 who have faced personal challenges or disadvantages.

Students are paired with specially trained mentors who have competed at world-class sporting events – including the Olympics and Paralympics – and have overcome their own significant personal challenges. Anna Turney will provide personal mentoring for the students over eight months to help unlock hidden attitudes and skills. They’ll also help the students to deliver a social action project towards the end of the programme.
