Covid guidance update April 2022
PCR and LFT tests are no longer freely available, so for the majority of people, there is no expectation to test.
If you do have access to tests and you are an adult who tests positive, you should stay at home and isolate for 5 days.
If you are a child who tests positive you should isolate for 3 days, or longer if you still have a high temperature.
Children and adults who live with someone who has tested positive should continue to attend school/work as normal.
Children who have symptoms of a respiratory illness such as a runny nose, sore throat or slight cough, can continue to attend their education setting. If they have a high temperature AS WELL they should stay at home and avoid contact with people until well enough to resume normal activities and have a normal temperature.
Children who have experienced diarrhoea or vomiting should stay away from school for up to 2 days after symptoms have gone.
If your child is absent from school please continue to inform the school offices every day as usual.
Transmission prevention measures will remain in place
Good hygiene (such as covering your mouth with your arm or tissue)
Regular hand washing/ sanitising throughout the day.
If you or your child is eligible, please take up the offer of a vaccine when contacted by the NHS.
