As we have had several positive cases across the school in the week ending January 14th, we now require children to get a negative PCR result, if anyone in their household has Covid. This is to reduce the spread of Covid within the school. Unfortunately, some of the children who have Covid had tested negative the day before their positive result and had been in school that day. Parents of children in the affected year groups have been notified and asked to do a LFT with their child every morning for 7 days before they come to school. Children who tested positive this week can return to school if they have recovered and have negative LFT results on day 6 and day 7 which are 24 hours apart - they can then come back the following day. These timings will change from Monday following the government's new guidelines. We will apply the new rules from Monday for anyone who catches Covid from 17th January onwards.
