New Covid Guidelines

3rd April 2022

Dear Parents/Carers,

The government Covid guidance changed on April 1st. The new advice is:-

 

• Children who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature and are well enough to attend.

 

• Children with a positive Covid-19 test result should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school after 3 days (day 4) if they do not have a high temperature, and feel well.

 

• Children no longer need to have a negative test before they return to school.

 

This is all part of the government’s next steps to ‘living with Covid’.

 

Although there are changes to the testing and isolation rules, transmission rates in the local community remain high. We will continue to be careful in school, and will be maintaining our current Covid measures.

 

Thankyou for all your support. We really appreciate all your efforts to keep our children, and the school community safe.

 

Yours sincerely

 

Mrs Robertson
