Unless testing was delayed following onset of symptoms, case was not in setting and therefore there is no need to contact school.

I have set up a designated number for parent/carers to contact me in the event of a confirmed case between the close of school on Friday 18th December and Thursday 24th December. This number, which can be found at the end of this letter is to be used exclusively for contact tracing purposes and no other communications

Parental Responsibility

Parents to notify close contact family and friends and follow advice as per NHS Covid-19 guidelines http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

In order to ensure these arrangements work effectively and minimise the risk of compromising families’ Christmas break, please adhere to the following:

  • Parents to seek tests via testing centres rather than via postal tests as this can significantly delay confirmation of results.  Results are normally forthcoming in 24 hours via test centres.
  • Parents to notify school if children have symptoms after schools close (as outlined above) – even when waiting for a test result, families can be advised to take necessary steps whilst awaiting confirmation.
  • So as to minimise the risk of infection within school (and the wider community) please ensure you continue to adhere to social distancing protocol.

 

The school Contact Trace number is as follows: 07564 611777

If there is anything you are at all unsure about regarding these arrangements please contact the school before the end of term.

Best wishes

 

Emma Stevens
