What will happen in the event of a confirmed case of Covid-19 in school.

If your child has been identified as a close contact of a confirmed case, in line with the national guidance, the whole Key Stage bubble must close meaning YOUR CHILD MUST STAY AT HOME AND SELF-ISOLATE until 10 days after contact. This means they must not leave the house at all.

Work for the next 10 days will be posted daily on the class’s page of the school website.

If your child is well at the end of the 10 days period of self-isolation, they can return to school and all other usual activities. A negative test does not mean that they can stop self-isolation earlier than 10 days.

Other members of your household can continue normal activities provided your child or anyone in your household does not develop symptoms of COVID-19 within the 10 day self-isolation period.

Please follow link to the PHE Staying at Home Guidance https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-home-guidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection

 

Do not leave your home if you have coronavirus symptoms.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

 

Most people with coronavirus have at least one of these symptoms.
