(Covid) Testing of Students
All students should continue to take their LFT Covid test EVERY Sunday and Wednesday and to register the outcome on the student covid test link. All students have been issued with a Covid test kit to take home. If the result is positive please email the notification to email@example.com, self-isolate and arrange to take a PCR test.
Covid - Know The Symptoms & Get Tested
As the country moved to Step 4 on 19 July 2021, the government issued new advice which parents and carers may find useful as guidance in preparation for the return to school in the Autumn term.
All children are expected back in school for the start of the new term unless they are self-isolating because they have coronavirus symptoms and/or have tested positive for coronavirus and/or have recently returned from abroad and are required to quarantine.
Some parents and children may feel anxious about the return to school, however, schools and settings are following national and local guidance and to minimise the risk of infection. Please continue to encourage your child to follow the guidance. Children are at very low risk of becoming seriously unwell from Covid-19.
Children under 18 years and 6 months are no longer required to self-isolate if they are a close contact of someone who has tested positive, including if they share a household with someone who has tested positive, but may be asked to do a PCR test.
Everyone over 16 is now eligible for a vaccine and children aged 12 to 15 with specific underlying health conditions or who live with others at increased risk of getting seriously ill from Covid-19 are also eligible for the vaccine.
If you have coronavirus symptoms, you should book a test by calling 119 or visiting Gov.UK. The symptoms are:
A high temperature
A new, continuous cough
A loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
If a student tests positive with Covid please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of the positive test result confirmation.
If your child is ill at all, then err on the side of caution and keep at home until they are fully well. If they have Covid symptoms then you must keep them at home and should book a PCR test.
All students should continue to test twice a week on a Wednesday and on a Sunday and results recorded through the NHS website and on the student link below.
