Covid 19 Reporting Requirements Over the Christmas Break
Dear Parents and Carers,
The Government has asked the school to continue to provide a track and trace service up to, and including, the 23rd December 2020.
Should your child have a COVID-19 test and it is confirmed as a positive case (having developed symptoms LESS than 48 hours since being in school; i.e. symptoms developed before 3.30pm on Saturday 19th December), you should immediately email the school office with the following information and marking your email as “POSITIVE COVID TEST” (to ensure that your email is dealt with as an urgent priority):
- Child’s Name
- Child’s Class
- Date and Time of symptoms starting (if symptoms started after 3.30pm on Saturday 19th December, i.e. 48 hours after being in contact with the school community, you do not need to inform the school of a positive test)
- Date of Test
- Date of Result
The email address is: email@example.com
The office email account will be monitored twice a day from the end of term up to, and including, Wednesday 23rd December 2020. We will only be responding to emails regarding confirmed cases of COVID-19 and all other emails will be responded to when the school reopens in January.
In the event of a positive test result, we will seek guidance from Public Health England as to whether we need to notify any close contacts and advise them of the need to self-isolate.
Thank you for your support and co-operation.
