COVID 19 INFORMATION
COVID 19 INFORMATION PAGE
From 1st April 2022, all remaining Covid restrictions in England have ended. The following information should be used to decide whether your child is well enough for school:
1. Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can come back to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend. There is no longer a need to test your child for Covid using a Lateral Flow Test.
2. Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be 3 days. This means that even if your child has had a positive Covid test (which is unlikely as free testing is ending), they can return to school after 3 days if they are well.
3. Lateral Flow Tests will no longer be free from today and we have been told to dispose of any remaining stocks and not give these out to either parents or staff.
4. Remote learning provision will end on 1st April 2022. Children can no longer access testing without symptoms (and then only in specific cases). The only children who should be at home with Covid (or any other illness) will be those who are too ill to attend school, and therefore too ill to complete remote learning. As such, we will be stopping all remote learning as it is now unnecessary.
Our first duty as a school is to keep children safe. CLICK HERE to find out how we keep children safe in the event of individuals or groups being asked to Self-Isolate.
