Dear parents/ carers

As you may know, we have had several positive cases of Covid-19 in Year 1. With the number of cases locally high and rising at the moment, please continue to be careful and follow all guidance. Please can I ask that, if you, your child or someone in your house tests positive that you inform school immediately. We need to inform the local authority and public health and seek advice and it helps us greatly if we know straight away. It is very important that we isolate if we need to. When to self-isolate:

Self-isolate immediately if:

  • you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • you've tested positive for COVID-19 – this means you have the virus
  • someone you live with has symptoms or tested positive
  • someone in your childcare or support bubble has symptoms and you’ve been in close contact with them since their symptoms started or during the 48 hours before they started
  • someone in your childcare or support bubble tested positive and you’ve been in close contact with them since they had the test or in the 48 hours before their test
  • you've been told you've been in contact with someone who tested positive – find out what to do if you're told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app
  • you have arrived in England from abroad (not including Ireland, the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man or other parts of the UK) – see GOV.UK: how to quarantine when you arrive in England

Please take care and safe. Take care.
