From Friday 13 March, the guidance to schools on managing the spread of coronavirus has changed.
People with symptoms are no longer asked to call NHS 111, but rather to look for information on the NHS website and 111 online.
Anyone with a 'new, continuous' cough or high temperature has been asked to stay at home and self-isolate for seven days.
There are no planned changes to timetables or school opening. All Spencer Academies Trust schools will continue to open as usual, and to take specific public health advice on a daily basis.
Planned overseas travel from schools has been suspended. This will remain the case for the foreseeable future, and does not affect planned trips within the UK at this time.
Information about the simple steps families can take to limit the spread of coronavirus is available here.

Welcome to Sunnyside Spencer Academy!
Everything we do at Sunnyside is about providing our children with an excellent education and enriching experiences to promote a love of learning. Our aim for our school community is for all to grow and shine!
We think Sunnyside is a very special place to be because of our wonderful children. We strive to provide the very highest standards of education within a caring, exciting and stimulating environment. We want our children to be excited by the curriculum and challenged to achieve their full potential. We want our children to enjoy their learning and feel valued. By working closely with our parents and governors, we ensure that all our children have an excellent start to their educational journey.
Sunnyside is a community that:
- Is aspirational and successful in meeting high expectations.
- Promotes happiness through being kind, supportive and empathetic towards others.
- Together will achieve independent life long learners.
- Provides a nurturing environment which develops positive, tolerant, resilient citizens.
- Enriches the lives of all.
We hope that our website captures the spirit of Sunnyside and the rich and varied opportunities children receive at our school.
