CURRENT GUIDANCE FOR COVID - LIVING WITH COVID

If your child has any symptoms, please keep them off school. 

If your child tests positive for Covid 19 they must stay at home and

self - isolate for at least 3 days until they have no temperature and are no longer unwell. 

As you will be aware, on Monday 21st February the Prime Minister set out the next phase of the government’s COVID-19 response ‘Living with COVID-19’. COVID-19 continues to be a virus that we learn to live with and the imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education remains. The latest COVID guidance states that as risks of severe illness from COVID-19 in most children and most fully vaccinated adults are very low, and the successful vaccination programme has achieved a high rate of take-up, other guidance can now be removed.

Changes to education settings:Changes to self-isolation and daily testing of close contacts

Please be vigilant and if your child has any of the recognised symptoms and is unwell please keep them at home until they are better. The main symptoms include fever, a new and continuous cough, loss of smell and loss of taste. Examples of other symptoms include, shortness of breath, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle ache, sore throat, headache, nasal congestion (stuffy nose), runny nose, diarrhoea, nausea and vomiting.

Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They come back to school and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and / or they are well enough to attend. It is now recommended that children stay off school for at least 3 days and / or until they are fully recovered.

All adults and children who test positive will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 3-5 full days or until any temperature has gone and they feel well enough to return to school or the work place. 

In most cases, parents and carers will agree that a pupil with the key symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend the school, given the potential risk to others.  However, if a parent or carer insists on a pupil attending school where they have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, school can take the decision to refuse the pupil if, in their reasonable judgement, it is necessary to protect other pupils and staff from possible infection with COVID-19.

Our school will continue to exercise caution to this situation and would advise that measures are in place for good ventilation and hygiene. These will continue within our school setting until further notice. 

 If your child is still unwell regardless of the test result, please keep them at home.

Please contact school directly if you are still in doubt if your child should attend school.

COVID guidance is continually updated and all specific guidance can be found on the government website which is updated regularly. 

Should you child display COVID symptoms please keep them off school.

If you need further advice please contact https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.

 

 The remote learning offer for this school is attached above. We will continue to offer face to face teaching in school as a priority. However, if this becomes untenable for some groups or classes due to staff abscence as a last resort this school may have to provide some remote learning. 

Each school is different and the offer provided is what we feel as a school is best for our children.
