As we start our new school year you will notice there are many changes in how we are operating as a school. We are following government guidance and putting in several controls to minimise the risk of transmission of Covid-19. You can see a full copy of our Covid-19 risk assessment on our website. We will regularly review our risk assessment as guidance from the government is updated.
Parents and families are asked to adhere to the following from school to support the health of our school community:
- All adults and secondary aged pupils no longer are required to wear face coverings on site, however those that do should not be discouraged from doing so.
If your child has any of the following symptoms;
A new or continuous cough; a temperature of 37.8 degrees or above; a change/ loss of their sense of taste or smell
If in school they will be isolated in our sick bay with a member of staff and will be sent home immediately along with any siblings.
You will be asked to get your child tested and advised that your child cannot return to school until they return 2 negative LFt tests on days 6 and 7 after testing positive.
The following chart will help in this process:
Should there be 5 or more ‘linked’ cases within the school (same class/year group/ friendship or family groups etc) then Public Health will advise of next steps.
