Dear Parents and Carers,
Following the update from the Government last night, the following precautions for COVID-19 are now in place;
1) Individuals displaying the symptoms of a new continuous cough, a temperature over 37.8 degrees or both, must now self-isolate for 14 days. If one person is self-isolating in the household, the whole household just self-isolate. Any pupils or staff that had began to self-isolate under the previous guidance will be contacted today to remind them that they now need to self-isolate for 14 days;
2) Pupils that report having a new continuous cough or a temperature or both symptoms, will be asked to be collected by parents or carers and will need to self-isolate for 14 days;
3) Pupils with significant health issues (heart issues, respiratory issues, kidney issues, diabetes) will be advised to stay at home and “shield” themselves from any potential risk from COVID-19. As a school, we have asked several members of staff to remain at home due to underlying medical conditions.
As parents were informed yesterday, COVID-19 related absences will not impact negatively on your child’s attendance.
Please do not hesitate to contact us should you require further clarification.
This is a time where we all need to look after one another.
Head of School
