COVID latest advice
Covid cases in school are rising again. A reminder that government advice regarding self-isolation and testing is still that your child should stay at home and avoid contact with other people if they have tested positive for COVID-19 or have COVID-19 symptoms.
If your child is symptomatic, they should get a PCR test as soon as possible. Your child can return to school after 10 full days isolation. They may be able to return earlier if they test negative for two days in a row from day 5 of self-isolation and do not have a temperature. If they continue to test positive during the 10-day isolation, they can return after completing 10 full days isolation. Your child will still receive work to do at home if they need to self-isolate, as well as free school meal support if they are eligible for this.
As always, the safety of our pupils and staff is our priority.
There are still steps you can take to reduce the risk of catching and spreading COVID-19:
Let fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
Consider wearing a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces
Get tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and stay at home if positive
