Self - Isolation for Covid-19


If you or your child is showing symptoms of Coronavirus (Covid -19) you must not enter the school site.  Please inform us that you are entering into household isolation for 10 days or until a negative test result is received.  


If you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace due to having been in contact with a positive case of Covid - 19, you must not enter the school site.  If your child is also contacted they are not allowed to attend school.  Those who have been contacted must enter into a period of self isolation for 10 days.  If you develop symptoms of Covid - 19 within this time you must take a PCR Covid test, bookable here: Book a Coronavirus Test. If you do take a PCR test within your 10 day self - isolation period and you test negative, this does not mean your self - isolation can end.  You must still remain in self-isolation for the full 10 days.  If you test positive within this time, your 10 day self-isolation period will start again from the day you developed symptoms or, if asymptomatic, from the day of your test.
