Should any pupil/student test positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school (that is up to and including Sunday 2nd May), can we ask that parents/carers inform us by email in order that we can inform any close contacts that they need to self-isolate.
Parents/carers should inform us via the generic email account: email@example.com. This email account will be monitored across the long weekend.
Could we ask that parents inform us of the date that their child first developed COVID-19 symptoms or, in the event of them being asymptomatic, the date the test was administered. Parents/carers of any child identified as a close contact will receive notification via ClassDojo or email stating the required period of isolation and links to Government guidance.
Please note, parents/carers are not required to inform us if a pupil/student tests positive having developed symptoms more than 48 hours after being at school (specifically after Sunday 2nd May). Parents/carers should instead liaise with NHS Test and Trace.
Should a child test positive from a home LFD (Lateral Flow Device), parents/carers should book a PCR test to confirm the result however, until such point as confirmation is received, the child and any close contacts should continue to isolate.
Have a good weekend.
