Information from October 1st 2022
New or changed guidance is in red.
The Government advice continues to outline that any children or adults who are showing symptoms of COVID-19 (high temperature, cough or loss of taste or sense of smell) should not enter the school. They should self-isolate where possible. If any children begin to show symptoms in school, we will continue to inform parents immediately and your child will need to be collected from school.
If a child or young person aged 18 or under tests positive for COVID-19, they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days. This starts from the day after they did the test.
If an adult has a positive COVID-19 test result, try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days after the day you took your test.
As testing stops, staff and children should remain out of school if they feel ill, especially if they have a high temperature. People should return to school when they feel well.
Pupils are mixing as normal. We are now running all assemblies as face to face meetings.
Pupils will be supported to maintain good hygiene measures including:
• Handwashing on entering and leaving school as well as regular use of handwashing or 6% alcohol hand sanitiser throughout the day
• Using the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ routine for coughs and sneezes
• Cleaning continues to be of a high standard and done regularly
Classrooms need to be well ventilated. Pupils can bring in an extra jumper if they feel that they need to.
