Dear Parent / Carer

We are continuing to be updated from the Department for Education on the government’s response to the Coronavirus.

Public Health England advises that the risk to individuals remains low. You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the coronavirus.

Guidance is being continually reviewed on travel to and from certain areas. To ensure that parents/carers have up to date information, particularly following the half term break, a page has been created on the Tapton School Academy Trust website which will be reviewed twice a week and updated accordingly.

The page can be found at www.taptontrust.org.uk under Key Information / Trust Policies / Coronavirus Update:

For information only to any families who maybe interested.
The University of Sheffield Korea Society will be holding their third annual Korea Day festival on the 1st of March, 12pm-5pm in the Octagon Centre of the University of Sheffield.
The Festival is mainly divided into two aspects;
First we have the cultural experience booths. Here, guests will be able to play traditional Korean games, experience Korean Calligraphy, and also have the opportunity to try on the Korea traditional outfit. We will also have professionals explaining Korean skincare and selling selected products. Furthermore, we will also be hosting Korean restaurants, so there will also be the opportunity to try authentic Korean food!
The second aspect of Korea Day is the live performance. The live performance aims to integrate traditional and contemporary Korean culture and will include K-pop, Taekwondo, and traditional Korean opera. There will also be the fun opportunity to participate in a ‘Random Play Dance’ of K-pop songs at the end of the event!
 
As you can see, this is a fantastic opportunity for students in Sheffield, and this is definitely not an event to be missed. The entry will be free for children aged under 12. Tickets to the event are £5 and can be bought from the following link: https://yoursu.sheffield.ac.uk/groups/korea-society/events/korea-day-2020
 
For group of 10 or more, each student will have 20% discount and each group should be accompanied by a full price paying parent or guardian. However, please inform that they should contact us previously via this email address if it is a group. Please be aware that there will be filming and recording of the event. 

Dear Parent / Carer

We have recently received the information below from the Department for Education, regarding the Coronavirus.

Advice for parents/guardians

You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus. There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.

We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the Foreign Office latest travel advice via the links below:
