As the term progresses and the weather turns, we are expecting an increase in the usual bugs as well as, potentially, Covid. Whilst we hope that this is not the case, we do need to have a plan for when we do. A contingency plan for this will be published on our website. However, if your child has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive then you are advised to book a PCR test. The latest guidance states that if they have no symptoms they can still come to school whilst waiting for a result. If they test positive then the NHS will advise you as to how long they need to isolate.We will continue to monitor the situation very closely and keep you informed of the situation in school.
