COVID in School – If your child displays symptoms of COVID, keep them at home and do a Lateral Flow test.  If your child is tested for COVID, please forward a copy of the result of the PCR/Lateral Flow test to the school office.  If a positive result is returned, please contact the school office for further guidance.  If a child tests positive in any class, an alert letter will be sent out to the parents/guardians of pupils in that class.

The guidance has changed; you do not keep your child off school, additional guidance will be attached to your alert letter.
