Update from 08/04/22
Whilst these are no longer required, we’d recommend parents wear them in crowded spaces or if coming into school. Parents are now welcome to attend events in school.
Routine testing is no longer advised for staff or children.
From 24/02/22, the law changed and it is no longer a legal obligation to isolate.
Following public health advice, if children are unwell they should remain at home, especially if they have a high temperature. If children do test positive for coronavirus, or you suspect they have coronavirus, please keep them at home for at least 3 days after symptoms began and until they are well.
For schools, this places COVID on the same level as the current policy in place for when children have other infectious or potentially infectious illnesses – such as Chicken Pox or vomiting/diarrhoea. These require children to be clear of symptoms for a fixed period of time before returning to school (for example, for vomiting/diarrhoea this is 48hours clear).
We will, of course, continue to provide remote learning for COVID absence periods.
