Dropping off/collecting siblings of pupils who are self isolating

Mr Tharia has contacted the Local Authority to clarify arrangements for families who have a child who is self isolating but still need to bring/collect a sibling. The Local Authority has advised the following.


1. If possible, arrange for another person to drop off/collect the sibling, or

2. If safe to do so, leave the pupil self isolating in a vehicle whilst the sibling is dropped off/collected (older children only), or

3. Bring the self isolating pupil on site but ensure they do not interact with anyone else. Face masks can worn if the child is comfortable to do so.


Please do not bring any child on site who has symptoms of the coronavirus. In this case, please arrange a test and inform the school of any positive result as soon as you can.
