Pupils’ Positive COVID Cases 


If your child develops coronavirus symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, (the first weekend of the holidays) and subsequently tests positive for Covid 19, it is imperative that you contact school via email: so that we can assist with track and trace.



The holy name email address will be checked daily for test results only. All other enquiries we be dealt with on the return to school.

The school phones will not be manned during the holiday period.



If you or your child display any symptoms of COVID 19 you should request a test as soon as possible and within 5 days of the symptoms starting. 

Common symptoms are -

  • high temperature
  • a new continuous cough
  • loss or change to sense of taste or smell
Whoever is showing these symptoms should self isolate for 10 days, and the rest of the household should self isolate for 10 days in line with Government guidelines.


Please DO NOT send your child into school with any of the above symptom.  Please let the school know your test results as soon as possible, and before your child returns to school.   Thank you.
