Summer Term Covid-19 Guidance and School Expectations
The following guidance is based on the Gov.uk document published on the 24th february 2022.
From 24 February, the Government removed the legal requirement for people with coronavirus (COVID-19) infection to self-isolate. However if you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19 or a positive test result, the public health advice is to stay at home and avoid contact with other people.
The main symptoms of COVID-19 are a recent onset of any of the following:
Other symptoms linked with COVID-19 include shortness of breath, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle ache, sore throat, headache, stuffy or runny nose, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.
If you have any of these symptoms you should order a PCR test using the link below. You are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people while you are waiting for the test result.
After 5 days, they may choose to take a Lateral Flow Device (LFD) test followed by another the next day (Day 6). If both results are negative and they do not have a temperature, then a normal daily routine can resume.
Therefore we expect children who attend our school with a positive C-19 result NOT to attend school until two tests are negative or a ten day period of isolation has ended.
Your support with our ongoing management of Covid-19 is greatly appreciated as we continue to minimise the risk of Covid-19 outbreaks and transmission in our school.
