Covid-19 Advice to Parents

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.
