26 Mar COVID-19 Update
We appreciate that this is a concerning time given the heightened media attention at present regarding the COVID-19 virus, but please be assured that we will continue to monitor the situation very closely as we are sure you are also doing on a daily basis. We are continuing to follow the latest Government guidelines as they are issued and will share any changes of school/event status with you directly but also via our Collective website and social media accounts. The Coopers Company and Coborn school is currently open as normal, we have not been notified of any symptoms in our immediate school community and we have not received any instructions to stop any of our planned school trips or activities and the Collective has not been advised to cancel any events. We will of course be guided by the venues that we use and send updates where necessary.
Could we please ask that you let us know immediately of any potential or suspected symptoms of COVID-19 within any of your staff or attendee groups as this will mean that they would have to stay at home and self-isolate until they were given the all clear by an appropriate medical professional.
We are actively promoting personal hygiene throughout the school site and would appreciate your support in maintaining this approach at any of our events and by monitoring and supervising young people to make sure they are doing the same.
We are very grateful for your support and understanding as this helps with the management and clear communication regarding the current situation, ensuring the ongoing good health of our event attendees and wider community. We will always remain cautious but also maintain a good sense of perspective.
