The government is closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus and is taking action at home and abroad.
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 as normal.
The Government and NHS are well prepared to deal with this virus. You can help too. Germs can live on some surfaces for hours. To protect yourself and others:
- Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze.
• Bin the tissue, and to kill germs, wash your hands with soap and water, or use a sanitiser gel.
This is the best way to slow the spread of almost any germs, including Coronavirus.
Hornbeam has displayed posters in all staff and pupil restrooms promoting hygiene. Every class will receive a talk this morning with regard to effective hand washing and the need for tissues. Supervision of hygiene will as usual be undertaken at break and lunch periods.
Please enforce these behaviours in the home.
If we receive any additional information from the NHS, Government or Kent County Council we will keep you updated via a newsletter and the Hornbeam App. Information is also available following the link below.
Please remain calm but vigilant.
“Pupils thoroughly enjoy their time at school. They are extremely polite and friendly, and are happy to talk about their learning and share their views. They have excellent attitudes, and are proud of their school and their achievements.”

"Learn to Love Learning to Live Life Better"
Hornbeam Primary School is located in Mongeham on the outskirts of Deal. Our school is a happy place where children enjoy their learning and treat each other with respect.
At Hornbeam Primary School we believe in promoting and developing a love of life-long learning. We are proud to use the National Curriculum as a starting point for an inclusive and varied learning experience for our children. We enrich it by making our curriculum real and purposeful for the children and are committed to developing the whole child. Our children have the opportunity to be creative, to be physically active and to be academically challenged.
Using our motto "Learn to Love Learning to Live Life Better" as inspiration, teachers design topics around the National Curriculum Programmes of Study that aim to develop children's life skills and give them experiences that they will remember into adulthood.
Our aim here at Hornbeam is to teach the children how to be curious and inquisitive about their education. We inspire the children to be ambitious and teach them how to be resilient and courageous in order to fulfil their true potential. We encourage everyone to adapt their learning to new situations and reflect on each learning journey they take and to be proud of their achievements.
The staff and governors work hard to provide our children with a safe, well ordered and, most importantly, cheerful atmosphere in which to learn. We hope you enjoy visiting our website.
With best wishes,
