Following the letter sent home to parents on 8 July 2009, the school is continuing to monitor the situation carefully and work with West Berkshire Council. The teacher with suspected swine flu has made a full recovery and has returned to work.
It is likely that over the coming weeks and months some of our students and staff will contract swine flu. School will continue as normal. In the unlikely event of a school closure being necessary, normal school closure procedures will be followed. Information will be publicised on this website www.bartholonews.co.uk and on local radio stations.
The Department of Health has issued information and we urge everyone to follow the advice which is readily available. There are various useful websites with information. They are:
World Health Organisation
Health Protection Agency
Foreign & Commonwealth Office re travel
Please inform us immediately if you or a member of your family develops swine flu.
