Coronvavirus Parent Information


Current Advice and Guidance

The UK Government is co-ordinating the national response to the coronavirus.

We are following the latest advice and guidance: www.gov.uk/coronavirus

People should not be unduly worried about the possibility of catching the coronavirus.


Coronavirus: what you need to do

Stay at home:

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home);
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times;
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home.

Do not meet others. You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

Do not leave home if you or someone you live with has either:

  • A high temperature;
  • A new, continuous cough.

Check the NHS website if you have symptoms: www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19


Our Response: Key Worker Childcare

Parents whose work is critical to the Coronavirus response are able to access Key Worker Childcare. If you are a key worker and you cannot keep your child safe at home then you can access our provision through Rye Community Primary School – see our website for more details.


Our Response: Remote Support

Low-income families whose children are eligible for free school meals are being offered vouchers to make sure they continue receiving this support during our closure. We are developing other ways to offer ‘remote support’ including managing anxiety and safeguarding children at this challenging time – see our website for more details.


Our Response: Remote Study

We are providing ‘remote study’ for all our young people. Resources can be found on our website at www.ryecollege.co.uk/remote-study. Hard copies are available from our school for those that do not have access to a computer.


We continue to follow UK Government Guidance – keep checking our website for updates.
