Moat House Risk Assessment & Management Plan
In order to continue to protect our school community, you MUST make sure that if your child is unwell in any way, that they do not attend school. If they have the top three symptoms of a temperature OR a new continuous cough OR a loss of taste or smell, they must self-isolate until they have taken a PCR test and got the result. If the result is negative they can return to school when they are feeling better. If the result is positive they will need to self-isolate for up to 10 days. If they do lateral flow tests which are negative on day 6 and day 7 they can return to school the nest day.If your child is unwell in any other way, we ask that you keep them off school, and if in any doubt, please get a test for your piece of mind and ours. Other possible Covid symptoms include tiredness, shortness of breath, headache, sore throat, muscle ache, blocked / runny nose, diarrhoea and vomiting.
If your child is a close contact of someone with Covid at school or anyone else in the household has Covid, there is no longer a requirement for them to self-isolate unless they have symptoms. They need to have daily lateral flow tests and if these are negative they can carry on coming to school.
