Covid - Know The Symptoms & Get Tested

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms must self-isolate and request a PCR test.

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 covid@saintedmunds.org.uk 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.

Year 7 Tutor Evening Feedback

Year 7 Tutor Evening on the 21st October 2021 was an amazing opportunity for us as a school to welcome the families of our new Year 7 students into our school community. I would like to say a huge thankyou to every parent/carer who found the time to attend and hopefully the opportunity to meet your child's tutor proved helpful. I know the student's were very proud to share their achievements and for their families to know how well they have all settled into life at St Edmund's. As you can see from the information below the tranistion to St Edmund's seems to have been very smooth and I am very impressed with the mature attitude the students have shown.

  1. I am happy with my child's transition to St Edmund's. 
    84% Strongly Agree - 16% Agree 

  2. My child feels safe at St Edmund's. 
    79% Strongly Agree - 20% Agree - 1% Unsure

  3. My child is happy at St Edmund's. 
    78% Strongly Agree - 22% Agree 

  4. I would recommend St Edmund's to other parents.
    84% Strongly Agree - 16% Agree 

I am very much looking forward to celebrating the Year 7's achivements further in our Celebration Assembly after Christmas and for parents to have another opportunity to hear all about their child's achievements in our Parents Evening in the summer term. Once again thankyou to all parents and carers for your support as without this the transition to St Edmund's would not have been as successful. 

Miss Hammond
