COVID 19

Coronavirus - Covid-19

Updated 6th Jan 2022 - Confirmatory PCR tests following a positive lateral flow device (LFD) test result are to be temporarily suspended from Tuesday 11 January. This will mean that anyone who receives a positive LFD test result will be required to self-isolate immediately and will not be required to take a confirmatory PCR test.

Updated 3rd Jan 2022 - 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 setting from day 8.

National lockdown: Stay at home 04.01.2021

Following the Government's announcement of a national lockdown and school closures, I write to inform you that all learning will be remote from tomorrow.  The Remote Learning 2020-2021 document details the planned delivery.

The school will be open for children of critical keyworkers and vulnerable children as defined by the government: www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-maintaining-educational-provision/guidance-for-schools-colleges-and-local-authorities-on-maintaining-educational-provision

Bubbles will be made up of the children requiring provision and will not be the same as the current class bubbles.

Breakfast club will be available for those children eligible for on-site provision.

All keyworker parents/carers entering the school premises must wear a face covering in addition to social distancing. Children are to wear school uniform.
