Welcome to Farnborough Road Junior SchoolBelonging together, learning together, achieving together

Covid-19 (Corona Virus) Updated 27/3/20

Following Government advice, school is now closed to everyone except the children of key workers who have no other childcare options. 


All information linked to this issue can be found on this link.


Don't forget, new guidance has been issued by the Government.


  • If you live with others and you or one of them have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.  In accordance with this any pupils whose parents have reported these symptoms to us must now stay at home for 14 days and not 7, as was the original instruction.


  • If you are concerned about the transmission of the virus at home due to family members having serious, underlying health issues, family members living in the household who are over 70 or if members of your household are pregnant, the advice at this time would be to self-isolate.  


Please see this important advice regarding vulnerable group and social distancing:

  • If anyone becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature in our school setting they will be sent home and advised to follow the guidance as above.




Please continue to reiterate the importance of high standards of hygiene to your child especially through regular washing of hands for 20 seconds and sneezing or coughing into tissues and disposing of them.


Please see the following posts for helpful information from Young Minds about how to discuss with your child about Covid-19:


These are challenging times for us all but it is important that we all keep as safe as possible and support each other as a partnership.






School App

We are using the school app to send home notifications about the school situation and any updates linked to this matter. We are using this method because it is the most up to date system that we have and we are also able to monitor delivery statistics for important information that we may send. We will copy the same information onto the school website, but the app will alert you as soon as we post news.


If you are not active on the new app you need to act now. 


Class Dojo

This will be used to send home tasks for all children and should be used for all teacher/parent communication.

If you are not on this platform, you need to act now. 




During this period, all school email addresses will be monitored. This includes the office, teaching staff and my own account. We are happy to help where we can with specific questions you may have linked to your child.




We need to be able to communicate with everyone easily. We sent out this reminder of how we do this on Friday 13/3/20.
