Coronavirus Information for Parents:
Protocols for a positive test result
In the event of a positive coronavirus result, please complete the form below as a matter of urgency. Please provide any additional information/updates using the firstname.lastname@example.org stating your child’s name and tutor group on the email
We appreciate students and parents/carers may want to alert friends and family whom they have been in close contact with of the positive result. Please can we ask that this information is not shared on social media as this is causing unnecessary panic and concern amongst the school community.
Please use the below link for further advice on symptoms in children and what you need to do. (Advice is subject to change)
As students return to school after a prolonged break, we expect colds and similar viral infections to circulate. Please follow the guidance on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/ if you are not sure whether your child has Covid symptoms. This will ensure that children are not unnecessarily kept away from schools and exposed to inappropriate testing. Sore throats and blocked noses are not symptoms of Covid and we would not expect students to be absent for more than 3 days if they are exhibiting these symptoms. It is important now more than ever that we do not lose any unnecessary learning due to the amount already lost because of Covid.
