-If your child has Covid-19 symptoms (or anyone in their household) they need to isolate and do a PCR test*. These can be booked through the NHS Test and Trace website or by calling 119.
-If your child has a positive LFT they should isolate until the results of the PCR test is received. If this is negative, they can stop self-isolating (*please see temporary guidance below). If the PCR is positive, they must isolate and NHS Test & Trace will be in touch with parents. Please keep school informed in all cases. Please see this link for more information:
*From Tuesday 11th January confirmatory PCR tests are temporarily suspended for positive lateral flow device (LFD) test results. This means that anyone who receives a positive LFD test result will be required to self-isolate immediately and will not be required to take a confirmatory PCR test.
-Schools are no longer being asked to conduct routine contact tracing. If we do have a positive case in your child’s year group we will inform parents and NHS Test and Trace may work with the parents or carers of the positive case to identify close contacts.
-Normal drop off times and collection times will continue. Nursery doors open at 9am, end of the day collection is 3pm. Reception to Year 2, doors open at 8.50am and children collected at 3.15pm. KS2 children, doors open at 8.40am and children collected at 3.20pm.
-Any visitors to the school will be asked to wear a face covering. We are asking that all parents wear a face covering on the playground. If you are exempt, please ensure you social distance from other parents and staff.
-We reserve the right to amend our school restrictions in the case of high community transmission.
If your child is positive, please contact our office by emailing email@example.com to let us know which remote learning package you would prefer, either:
All isolating children are invited to a live session everyday (please see your child's class team page for the exact times) and an assembly on a Wednesday and Friday at 2.45pm.
If your child is joining in with the live reading session then they should be wearing headphones. This reduces the distraction for them and enables them to concentrate better.
