Whole School Covid Risk Assessment- Updated 14th April 2021
Coronavirus Symptoms Flowchart
Suspected and Positive Cases
Where the school identifies suspected or positive cases a rapid risk assessment will be made with Public Health England and the Department for Education.
Identified direct close contacts will be required to self-isolate for 10 full days and the school will endeavour to notify parents by telephone and electronic communication immediately. A confirmatory letter will also be sent as soon as possible.
Current guidance also requests a PCR test for the the close direct contacts of the positive case. Positive outcomes from PCR or lateral flow tests must be reported to the school using the contact details above.
Those not deemed as a direct close contact will be notified of the positive case via letter.
The school will continue to encourage all members of the school community to lateral flow test twice a week.
