Dear Parents/Carers,
Reporting a case of Coronavirus over the Christmas Holiday

The Government has asked schools to communicate with parents to make them aware of arrangements for reporting positive cases of Covid-19 during the school holidays.

If after reading the information below you need to report a positive case to school during the holidays please either email [email protected]  or phone 07851 254170. Please do not use the usual school phone number as there will be nobody available to take your call.

Reporting information

  • Where a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should not be contacted. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
  • For the first 6 days after teaching ends, if a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, the school is asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in school. Please email [email protected] or phone 07851 254170 to inform school.
  • School staff are not asked to remain on-call or conduct any contact tracing more than 6 days after the final day of teaching. Where a schools last teaching day is on Thursday 17th December, there should be no pupil contact tracing asks beyond Wednesday 23rd December. Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.

Where pupils are required to self-isolate due to contact with a positive case after the first 6 days following the end of term, schools do not need to be informed about their absence until the first day of the new term.

This information can also be found on our Website and on Weduc.

I hope you have a happy and safe holiday.

Kind regards
