Covid-19

If your child has symptoms

There is national guidance for people who have symptoms of respiratory infections including Covid-19.

Children with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or mild cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend school. Children who have a high temperature should stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people; they should return to school when the high temperature has passed and they are well.

If a child has a positive Covid-19 test result they should stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day that they took the test.

Children who live with someone who has a positive Covid-19 test result should continue to attend school as normal.

What happens if your child is off school?

If your child is away from school for Covid-related reasons for one day only, when they return, their teacher will ensure that they catch up with any work missed. Should the absence continue for a subsequent day or days (eg, if they are isolating), work will be set and your child will be able to access this via the Microsoft Teams platform. This will cover the lessons your child missed on the previous day.

If your child is too unwell, or you are unable to support them, please be assured that we will do everything possible to help them catch up when they return.

What happens in the event of a full or partial school closure?

In the event of a Covid-related closure, the remote learning contingency plan will be actioned immediately for all children unable to attend school. This will be similar in format to the remote learning during the previous full school closure using Microsoft Teams. Full details will be communicated by Parentmail, and the Teams user guide is available below.

The risk assessment below provides details about how we are working to keep children and staff as safe as possible.
