Guidance regarding Covid and self-isolation

Guidance for children and young people with Covid-19 is as follows:

“Children and young people with COVID-19 should not attend their education setting while they are infectious. They should take an LFD test from 5 days after their symptoms started (or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms) followed by another one the next day. If both these tests results are negative, they should return to their educational setting if they normally attend one, as long as they feel well enough to do so and do not have a temperature”

To read the full Government Guidance “Covid-19: people with Covid-19 and their contacts” (updated 7 March 2022), please click here.  This guidance is in place until 1 April 2022 at which point it will be updated.

We would ask our parents/carers to ensure they follow this guidance and to notify the School Office on 01773 825281 Option 2 if their child tests positive and is self-isolating.
