Should any pupil/student test positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school (that is - up to Sunday 20th December), can we ask that parents/carers inform us by email in order that we can liaise with Public Health England and inform any close contacts that they need to self-isolate.
Parents/carers should inform us via the generic email account: firstname.lastname@example.org. This email account will be monitored on a daily basis between the hours of 3pm and 4pm. 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, up to and including 24th December. This will include a letter notifying them of 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 20th December). Parents/carers should instead liaise with NHS Test and Trace.
