Please see below links to the latest guidance. Please follow this advice and stay at home as and when necessary. This is to protect the children and staff in our school.
What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19
There have been some changes recently with testing and self-isolation, so we have tried to summarise it for you. Please see the attached PDF for our breakdown.
When you are reporting an absence due to COVID-19, this is what we need from you:
Name and class of child.
Date of positive LFD test taken OR a copy of the PCR test result and first day of symptoms. (so we can determine ‘day 1’ of isolation)
Phone/ email when you have your first negative LFD test (so we can anticipate your child’s return the following day).
Track and trace
Please find below the procedure for reporting positive coronavirus cases during term time. During term time all covid related emails must be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
When reporting a positive case please provide the following information:
Childs name and class
Date when your child first started showing symptoms
Date when your child was last in school
Date test taken
Should there be a need to contact families and advise that children need to self-isolate over this period, we will carry out the following:
Contact all families with children in that bubble via TEXT on Teachers2Parents.
This text will then be followed up by an email with further information for the families of the children who need to self-isolate.
The remainder of the school will receive a letter only advising of the situation to ensure all are informed.
Please ensure that, should your child receive a positive test after this date, the correct isolation procedure is followed prior to their return to school and that school is informed on the first day back.
