It is very important that your child does not come to school if they are unwell.  Please contact the school office if your child, or anyone in your household, develops coronavirus symptoms. If in doubt, contact 111 for advice, before sending your child to school.


Anyone who develops symptoms must have a test within 5 days and send this to the Headteacher. In the case of a positive LFT, pupils should isolate for 10 days.  They may end the isolation period early if they have negative LFTs 24 hours apart on day 6 and 7, and share these results with the school. Positive LFTs as a result of asymptomatic testing do not currently require a confirmatory PCR test.
