 Please refer to the national guidance for what you can and cannot do at: www.gov.uk/coronavirus

 

School leaders and the federation governing body remain committed to monitoring all updates from the government and will continue to do so. Please keep reading all communications we send, for further information.

 

Please also click on the government links for more information about the latest development and measures you can take, to reduce the risk of this virus spreading. This continues to be a rapidly changing pandemic. Please practice social distancing even if you are not showing signs of the virus. We must do all we can as a school community to continue to play our part in stopping the spread of Covid 19. 

 

As a Church of England Federation, we also pray for our schools, city, country and the world,  for everyone effected by this dreadful situation. 

Identifying a 'Covid cough'

A reminder that currently only people with COVID-19 symptoms need to get tested.

 

In addition to information on the parent leaflet which has been circulated previously, we have the NHS definition of Covid symptoms which are:

The symptoms of COVID-19 are: 

·         A high temperature

·         OR new, continuous cough (usually dry, with no mucus or phlegm produced)

·         OR loss or change to sense of smell or taste

Covid Update

Clarification on the changes to the self-isolation period for individuals who test positive for COVID-19

Since Wednesday 22 December, the 10-day self-isolation period for people who record a positive PCR test result for COVID-19 has been reduced to 7 days in most circumstances, unless you cannot test for any reason.

Individuals may now take LFD tests on day 6 and day 7 of their self-isolation period. Those who receive two negative test results are no longer required to complete 10 full days of self-isolation. The first test must be taken no earlier than day 6 of the self-isolation period and tests must be taken 24 hours apart. This also applies to children under 5, with LFD testing at parental or guardian discretion. If both these test results are negative, and you do not have a high temperature, you may end your self-isolation after the second negative test result and return to your education or childcare setting from day 7.

Anyone who is unable to take LFD tests will need to complete the full 10 day period of self-isolation.

Further information, including examples of when to end self-isolation if you have had COVID-19 symptoms, is available in the Stay at Home Guidance
