Live from Thursday 5th November at 5pm
Due to our current risk assessment, we are regrettably unable to invite you and your child to visit our Sixth Form for this year’s Open Evening. We are, however, excited to be able to offer the opportunity for you to visit our virtual Open Evening via the school website.
The event will go live on the school website at 5.00pm on Thursday 5th November. We are very proud of our Sixth Form at Chase Terrace Academy and would be delighted to see as many of you as possible visiting the website to find out more about the fantastic range of academic and applied general courses that we are offering for September 2021.
Please find attached the following information regarding COVID-19.
- an open letter from Councillor Jonathan Price and Dr Richard Harling that provides a simple 10-step guide to help parents/carers make sense of the guidelines relating to symptoms, positive cases, testing and isolation;
- a two-page guide, with advice parents/carers when pupils should stay at home or go back to school.
All students should now be attending school following government advice unless:-
They have symptoms – please check using this link for advice/support on symptoms, advice on if you need a test and how to get a test – https://111.nhs.uk/service/COVID-19
If a member of their household has symptoms and is awaiting a test result:
- If negative they should return to school.
- If positive they are then are required to self-isolate for 10 days. If after 10 days, your child still has a fever, please seek medical advice – do not send your child to school. Others in the household should self-isolate for 14 days, including siblings.
If the student has been contacted by track and trace – they would require 14 days self-isolation. Siblings can come to school. If they develop symptoms during this time they must self-isolate for 10 further days following first onset of symptoms.
If they have returned to the UK from a country that requires quarantine – they should self-isolate for 14 days.
If the child is clinically vulnerable and is in receipt of a new letter from the government giving guidance of self–isolation. (This is only likely to happen if there is a local lockdown in place) Please keep school informed of all Covid related circumstances involving students. Please could you forward screenshots of test appointments to support us in monitoring attendance and welfare of students. You must inform the school immediately if your child is confirmed as having a positive test result.
