CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

 

We are continuing to follow Government Guidelines regarding Covid-19. Pupils are reminded to wash and sanitise their hands regularly and keeping good hygiene. If your child does display any Covid -19 symptoms in school we will air on caution and ask our medical staff to contact you to take them home for a lateral flow test.

 

Covid 19 symptoms

• a high temperature

• a new, continuous cough

• a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

 

Thank you to those parents who are wearing face coverings if they need to speak with a teacher or a member of staff. We are also limiting the number of visitors into the school unless it is necessary.

 

Covid-19 Latest National Guidance January 2022

The requirement for confirmatory PCR tests is to be temporarily suspended for positive lateral flow test results. From Tuesday 11 January 2022, in England, people who receive positive lateral flow results for COVID-19 will be required to self-isolate immediately and will not be required to take a confirmatory PCR test. This is a temporary measure while COVID19 rates remain high across the UK. Whilst levels of COVID-19 are high, the vast majority of people with positive LFD results can be confident that they have COVID-19. Anyone who develops one of the three main COVID-19 symptoms should stay at home, self isolate, and take a PCR test. They must self-isolate if they get a positive test result, even if they have had a recent negative lateral flow test - these rules have not changed. Under this new approach, anyone who receives a positive lateral flow device (LFD) test result should report their result on Gov.uk and must self?isolate immediately but will not need to take a follow-up PCR test. After reporting a positive LFD test result, they will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace so that their contacts can be traced and must continue to self-isolate. In line with the reduced self-isolation approach announced on 22 December, anyone who tests positive will be able to leave self-isolation 7 days after the date of their initial positive test if they receive two negative LFD results, 24 hours apart, on days 6 and 7. The DfE guidance has also been updated in line with the UKHSA announcement, and clarifies that children can return to school after day 7 if they have had two negative LFD tests.
