Welcome to Beverley High School
Latest Info required - As we move forward looking at more work that might be needed for KS3 students it is important we know if a student cannot access the internet on a suitable size screen. We can plan for sending paper copies to these students. If you do NOT have suitable internet access can you let the school know by sending an email to email@example.com with your child's name and form.

There is also www.mymaths.co.uk as always for students to access and work on their Maths.
You can also find some great courses at www.futurelearn.com that offers a wide range of free courses in a wide range of topics and subjects.
For English you could read the great classics or why not try https://stories.audible.com/discovery who have provided a wide range of books for free to listen to. (including the classics!)
Teachers will prioritise Y10 and Y12 for email contact and will be setting work/guidance over the coming weeks. Please do not contact teachers if you are in Y7-9.
When students do return to schools following their self-isolation period they will be required to log all of the super-curriculum activities they have completed.
Our main priority at the moment is keeping as many people safe. We are following all the guidance we have from the government and Public Health England in this ever changing situation. There are many questions that we are being asked and we ask that these be limited wherever possible. We will update the information we have as and when we have it regarding issues such as examinations. Our main message to everyone at the moment is to remain calm. Our staff will do everything they can to reduce any anxiety young people, parents or staff may be feeling at this time. We are mindful of the fact that many people will be worried about vulnerable relatives and friends. Staff will encourage conversations around schools to be based on fact and will seek to address misinformation. I hope that everyone associated with our school and community (including our young people) will try to remain calm, measured and are sensitive and kind to others over the coming days and weeks.
We will continue to remind all pupils, students and staff of the vital importance of good hand hygiene as an essential part of slowing the spread of the virus and have installed more hand sanitisers around the school to help.
Should anyone from a household display signs of the virus they and their family must self-isolate for 14 days in line with Public Health Guidance (see below).
Re: Covid – 19
In light of the guidance from government today please can we ask you to remind students, via your school website and social media platforms, about the availability of school nurse support. School nurses are available 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday, via ChatHealth – our confidential text messaging service. The contact number for ChatHealth is 07507 332891.
Please can you publicise the link for the ISPHNS website on the school website also.
https://humberisphn.nhs.uk/ which will be a useful resource for many parent/carer queries.

Advice for Schools (link)
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature
Main Messages (updated 16th March)
- 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
- it is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community
- for anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14 day isolation period.
