Parents and carers must ensure that students do not attend school if:
If any of the above points occur, families must follow the Stay at Home Government Guidance which advises that students should self-isolate for at least 10 days and arrange to have a test. Parents must inform school of the outcome of a test.
Parents should also be aware that:
If students have tested positive whilst not experiencing symptoms but develop symptoms during the isolation period, they should restart the 10-day isolation period from the day they develop symptoms.
Other members of their household (including any siblings) should self-isolate for 14 days from when the symptomatic person first had symptoms.
If you have had symptoms of coronavirus and have accessed a test and received a negative result you are able to end your self-isolation and come back to school.
If you are part of a bubble that has been sent home you must self isolate for 14 days as the incubation period for symptoms can take up to 14 days. You must not access a test unless you are showing symptoms.
