In line with Government advice we have now adapted the way we are dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
We continue to remain vigilant and operate in our community’s best interests to reduce the risks of COVID-19 (and other respiratory illnesses) by:
- keeping classrooms and teaching areas well-ventilated
- encouraging frequent and thorough hand-washing
- promoting ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ to ensure our children dispose of tissues properly and reduce risk of infecting others
“UKHSA guidance sets out that people with symptoms of a respiratory infection, such as COVID-19, and who have a high temperature or do not feel well, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with others. Those who are asked – or choose to test – and get a positive COVID-19 result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days following the day of their positive result.
Children and young people who are asymptomatic, choose to take a COVID-19 test and receive a positive test result are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day of the test.”
Please contact the School Office if your child falls ill and tests positive for COVID-19 and we will advise you further and arrange for work to be sent home for your child if they are well enough to study.
