Covid-19 Information

The start back to any school term always leads to a range of colds and runny noses.

 

This year, Covid-19 is obviously making this a far more difficult and worrying time for parents and carers. Below is a quick guide if you child is ill or becomes symptomatic at school.

 

DfE guidance for possible Covid-19 infections

'If anyone in your school becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), they must be sent home and be advised to follow the guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.

 

This sets out that they must:

  • arrange to have a PCR test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19) and isolate until the result is received and shared with the school. 
  • Positive individuals must isolate for ten days and follow current NHS guidance.

 

We will 'call parents/legal guardian to collect pupil and take them home'. Siblings will remain in school unless they are also displaying any related symptoms. 

 

Please use this link to access the latest guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection.'

 

If the test result is negative, then as soon as your child is well enough, they can come back into school.

 

We would request that any information of positive test results be confidentially shared with the school via email to school.office@oakham.sandwell.sch.uk as we need to monitor possible outbreaks in year group bubbles and possibly activate our Outbreak Management Plan (OMP).  

 

Thank you for your co-operation
