Stay at Home Guidance

Parents and carers must ensure that students do not attend school if:

  • They have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new continuous cough or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste).
  • They have tested positive for coronavirus in the last 10 days or live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive.
  • Someone in their support bubble (where people who live alone or just with their children meet people from one other household) has symptoms or has tested positive.
  • They have been told by NHS Test and Trace that they’ve been in contact with a person with coronavirus. 
  • They are required to self- isolate for 14 days after returning from a country where they are required to follow the government’s quarantine rules

?

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.
