COVID-19

Introduction

Please find below information explaining what we are doing in school to keep everyone safe and links to guidance that we hope you may find helpful during these difficult times.

On 21st February, 2022, Government announced the Living with Covid-19 plan, link below:

This step removes the remaining legal restrictions used to manage the pandemic and moves the management of the disease towards the Public Health standard approaches for managing infectious diseases.

This change in the approach has been reflected in Department of Education guidance for schools:

Self-Isolation and close contacts

Whilst the legal requirement for cases to self-isolate was removed from 24th February 2022, adults and children who test positive for Covid-19 are advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people. The current recommendation, in schools, is 5 days from a positive test for adults and 3 days for children.

Guidance for individuals provided by the UK Health Security Agency can be found at:

The guidance for individuals states that children and young people with COVID-19 should not attend their education setting whilst they are infectious.
