Latest COVID guidance should you test positive

Please find attached the latest guidance from the Government regarding COVID in schools.

".. parents and carers will agree that a pupil with the key symptoms of COVID-19 should not attend the school, given the potential risk to others. If a parent or carer insists on a pupil attending your school where they have a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19, you can take the decision to refuse the pupil if, in your reasonable judgement, it is necessary to protect other pupils and staff from possible infection with COVID-19"

Schools COVID-19 operational guidance February 2022


We feel it is in the best interests of all our children and the staff, if children/staff do not return to school whilst still testing positive for COVID. 



The document Guidance COVID-19: people with COVID-19 and their contacts Updated 14 March 2022 will also be helpful to you, it states;

Children and young people with COVID-19 should not attend their education setting while they are infectious. They should take an LFD test from 5 days after their symptoms started (or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms) followed by another one the next day. If both these tests results are negative, they should return to their educational setting if they normally attend one, as long as they feel well enough to do so and do not have a temperature. They should follow the guidance for their educational setting.

Avoid meeting people at higher risk of becoming seriously unwell from COVID-19, especially those with a severely weakened immune system, for the 10 days after your symptoms started (or the day your test was taken if you did not have symptoms).
