COVID-19 – reminder of changes

You will be aware that guidance on Tuesday so I thought I would update you on the new procedures.


  • If your child develops any of the main symptoms (temperature, cough or loss of smell or taste) they will must go and get a PCR test not a LFT.


  • From Tuesday 11th January 2022 if you test positive on a routine LFT you no longer need to get a PCR test to confirm the result.


  • If your child tests positive on a Lateral Flow Test or a PCR test they will have to isolate. On day 6 and day 7 (taken 2hrs apart) they can take an LFT, if both of these tests are negative then the pupil can return to school on day 8. If the LFT is positive then they will have to isolate for the full 10 days, returning to school on day 11 – providing they are well enough.


  • If your child is a close contact we will contact you directly to inform you.


  • If your child is considered to be a close contact of someone who has tested positive in school they will not be required to self-isolate but are strongly advised to take an LFD test every day for 7 days, or until 10 days since your last contact with the person who tested positive for COVID-19 if this is earlier. The test must be taken in a morning before they come to school.


What to do if your child is absent from school due to COVID

If your child is isolating and they are well in themselves they will be required to log into Teams where they will be able to join their classroom virtually and access everything the pupils in school are doing. Log ins remain the same from last year. If you need your log ins please contact the office and arrangements will be made to give you the information you need. If your child is ill we do not expect them to join in with the online learning until they are well enough to do so.


School meals

Currently cost £2.40 daily and must be paid online via ParentPay BEFORE meals are taken. The school does not cook meals on site and, therefore, all dinners must be ordered by 9:15am.
