Dear Families,

Covid New Guidance

The Government has now set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from last Friday 1st April when free testing is no longer available:

• Children who are unwell (particularly if they have a high temperature) should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. Children can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.

• Children with a positive COVID-19 test result should stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 3 days.

Staff have been asked to stay at home for five days if they have Covid, so keeping this virus out of our school will protect staff and ensure there’s less disruption to children’s learning.

As always, we know we can bank on your support with these new arrangements.
