COVID testing over Easter

31 March 2021 (by Patricia Page (admin))

As we enter the Easter Holidays, we'd like to quickly remind you of your role in helping us manage COVID, both as a school and as part of the wider community. 

If  during the Easter Holidays you, or any of your family household, develop any of the symptoms, which are:

  • a new continuous cough
  • a high temperature
  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

You are required to stay at home and self-isolate and request a test.

The protocols are as follows:

  • It is important that anyone with symptoms requests a test – this can be done through www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by phoning 119. Please note additional symptoms of an upset tummy or headache may also be coronavirus symptoms, always ring your GP if you are unsure.
  • If you or your child receives a positive test result for Coronavirus we require you to please notify the school as soon as possible. At this point, all household members (including brothers and sisters) must self-isolate for 14 days.

It is incredibly important that you communicate any positive COVID tests to us, as it may have an impact on the wider school community and our ability to re-open after the Easter Holidays.

Despite this, we do hope you have a restful Easter and manage to enjoy the new easing in restrictions. We look forward to welcoming you all back in April.
