This page details key information and the school's risk assessment, (downloadable below) in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
At 'Step 4' of the Government's Roadmap, (beginning July 19th) many restrictions have now been lifted. This has allowed the school to remove a number of restrictions including the withdrawal of 'bubbles', allowing greater opportunities for social interactions across the school.
The following information will continue to apply for all families:
- If your child is unwell, e.g. showing symptoms of a high temperature, a continuous cough or a change in taste/smell, they must remain at home. You must seek a test for your child as soon as possible. Tests are available online via: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or call 119, (the NHS Direct Covid-19 line), or school for advice on this process.
- If your child appears to have symptoms in school they will be sensitively isolated and their temperature taken and monitored for a short period of time. If symptoms continue, you will be called to collect them. We understand that pupils will often get colds and may present with a range of Covid-19 type symptoms. It is often hard to determine whether these are Covid-19 symptoms, but we will do our best to ensure, we are balanced in our response as we understand the impact that both Covid-19 and self-isolation can have on families.
- At Step 4, all those who have been double vaccinated or are under the age of 18 are no longer required to self-isolate if they are a close contact of a positive case. All children are expected to attend school. Only those who test positive should self-isolate.
