Reporting Covid-19 cases during half term

Reporting Covid-19 cases during half term

Dear Parents/Carers

We would like to inform you of the process for reporting Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases during the half term break.

If your child starts to show symptoms between Friday 23rd October and Monday 26th October, please email the school office to let us know –

You should book a Covid-19 test straightaway and inform the school of the result by emailing the school office. Please ensure that your whole family isolates. The person with symptoms must isolate for 10 days and the rest of the household for 14 days or until a negative test result is received.

You can book a Covid-19 test via the NHS website -

If a positive result is received, the infected person must isolate for 10 days and the rest of their household for 14 days. In the event of a positive test result, the school will report to the Department for Education and Public Health England for further instruction and advise the class bubble.

If your child or anyone in your family develops symptoms during half term and you are unsure about when they can return to school please do not hesitate to contact the school office – emails will be checked during half term.  Please also click here for the COVID Response flow chart for parents that we have previously circulated.

In the meantime, we wish all our children a safe and restful break.

Best wishes,

Mrs S Yay-Walker, Headteacher
