FACE COVERINGS IN SCHOOL

Following the Prime Minister's recent announcement of the new temporary measures in response to the new Omicron variant of Covid-19, the Department for Education has released the following guidance: 

Face coverings should be worn in communal areas in all settings by staff, visitors and pupils or students in year 7 and above, unless they are exempt.

Pupils or students (in year 7 or above) should continue to wear face coverings on public and dedicated school transport, unless they are exempt”.

 

Therefore the wearing of face coverings in communal areas of the school site, public and dedicated school transport will recommence from Tuesday 30th November.

As is the current situation, face coverings can be worn in lessons if students and staff wish to do so.

Thank you in anticipation of your support with these changes as we continue to keep everybody safe.

COVID 19 Update 

  • The guidance from the Government is for all school age students to test twice weekly using lateral flow tests provided by schools. We advise that you test your child on Wednesdays and Sundays.
  • If your child tests positive on a lateral flow test at home, they must isolate and book a PCR test. If the PCR test is negative they can return to school. 
  • If your child tests positive and you are double vaccinated, you do not need to self-isolate.
  • If any member of your household has tested positive,  your child does not need to self-isolate unless they show any symptoms.
  • If your child or any member of your household is showing symptoms you must arrange a PCR test and isolate until you get the result. You child does not need to isolate whilst you are waiting for the test result.
  • Please inform us at school of the result of any PCR tests.
  • If your child is at home, work will be set online each day. Please click here for further information on Remote Learning
