Latest Covid-19 Guidance
Living with Covid-19
From Thursday 24 February, the Government removed the legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive test. However, adults and children who test positive will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days, and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received 2 negative test results on consecutive days.
Anyone with one or more symptoms of coronavirus - a high temperature, a new continuous cough; or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste - should self-isolate and book a test or call 119 in England and Wales, or 0300 303 2713 in Scotland
and Northern Ireland.
If a pupil, student or staff member has COVID-19 symptoms, should they get a PCR test?
Yes, anyone with symptoms should take a PCR test, stay at home and follow government guidance if positive. People who have tested positive will continue to be advised to stay at home for five full days and then receive two negative test results on consecutive days before returning to their workplace or setting.
Contacts will no longer be required to self-isolate or advised to take daily tests. Staff, children and young people should attend their education settings as usual. This includes staff who have been in close contact within their household, unless they are able to work from home.
We are revising our Risk Assessment in the light of this latest guidance. From Monday 7th March we anticipate adjusting our measures in school, to include mixing of classes outdoors during break and lunchtimes and re-introducing whole school assemblies and gatherings. This will be providing there is not a further outbreak of Covid-19 within school.
