Covid Guidance

I wanted to update you all with the latest Covid guidance

Children should not come into school if they have symptoms, have had a positive test result or other reasons requiring them to stay at home due to the risk of them passing on COVID-19 (for example, they are required to quarantine).

If any child in school develops symptoms, however mild, we will send them home to seek a test and isolate.

If they do not have symptoms, the latest government guidance is that children are not required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.

Instead, they will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace, informed they have been in close contact with a positive case and advised to take a PCR test.

We would encourage all individuals to take a PCR test if advised to do so. They should also wear a face covering when travelling on public or dedicated transport.

Please inform the school immediately if your child tests positive for Covid.
