Update March 2021
As we continue to have a shared responsibility of reducing the transmission of the virus, it is vital that we follow the rules for self-isolation if you or a member of your household develops symptoms.
Please do not send your child in to school if they have one of the following symptoms:
- a high temperature - this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
If the school believes your child is showing any of the symptoms, we will call you to immediately collect your child. They will also be removed from their classroom and looked after in a room in isolation with an adult. If your child is sent home with symptoms of COVID-19, you need to apply for them to be tested. They will not be permitted back at school until the results of the test are known. If your child tests negative, they can return to school immediately. If they test positive, Public Health England will advise us on the next steps for which other pupils and adults need to isolate for 10 days. We will provide this information as soon as we have it.
Following Government guidance, from 8th March 2021, school attendance is compulsory for all pupils. If your child is required to self isolate, they are able to access their learning online via Google Classroom
