Covid-19 Visitor Protocol
Keeping Our School Community Safe
Please ensure you are readily contactable at all times throughout the school day, and if your place of work is not local, you make provision to enable your child to be collected from school immediately should they develop symptoms. We will use a designated room for those pupils or staff that show signs or symptoms of COVID-19. The window will be open to allow air circulation.
If your child develops symptoms at home, please advise us immediately but do not send them to school.
If anyone in the school becomes unwell with a new, continuous cough or a temperature, or has a loss of, or change in, their normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia), they must be sent home and self-isolate and should arrange to have a PCR test to see if they have coronavirus (COVID-19).
Please inform school immediately of the results of a test. If a PCR test is negative but your child still has symptoms, they may have another viral illness such as a cold, flu or a stomach bug. They should stay at home until they are well enough to return to school (48 hours in the instance of any diarrhoea or vomiting).
We encourage regular LFD home testing of children, to help identify asymptomatic cases.
Close Contacts and Isolation
NHS Test and Trace will work with the parents of any positive cases to identify close contacts and you will be asked which school your child attends to enable them to liaise with us if necessary to help in identifying close contacts.
