After an exciting week and a very positive return to school, I thought that I should update you on the school’s current Covid control measures.
Our current continuous measures are: –
Regular hand washing
Recommending using face coverings in internal communal areas (although this is not compulsory). This is under constant review as per our Covid Contingency Plan and any changes to government guidance
Twice weekly LFD testing for staff and students conducted at home
Not attending school if unwell and seeking a PCR test
Regular communication with the school community on current situation
Limiting the number of large face to face gatherings
Encouraging vaccination for staff and students where eligible.
Please do ensure that your child collects their lateral flow tests from school, and tests regularly on a Sunday and Wednesday evening to enable us to control the virus in school.
A reminder of what to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID-19
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared.
The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of:
new continuous cough and/or
a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell
For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.
If your child or anyone in the household does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from NHS at:
https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/ or by phoning 111.
