Coronavirus Information

Covid update


With regard to managing Covid in school, please be advised of the following: We are still encouraging regular hand cleaning, are ensuring rooms are well ventilated and our cleaners are continuing doing an amazing job ensuring surfaces are thoroughly cleaned every day. If a child develops symptoms of Covid, then you should arrange a PCR test for them as soon as possible, or use a Lateral Flow Test if available, and keep them at home. In the event of a positive test, the pupil must isolate for 5 days, then afterwards can leave isolation after 2 consecutive negative lateral flow tests (up to 10 days). After this period, they can return to school. Close contacts of those with Covid no longer need to take daily lateral flows, but should remain vigilant for symptoms themselves.
