Covid-19 testing/Self-isolation rules

The guidance has changed in regards to when pupils and adults have to self-isolate according to your age or vaccination status.

When am I, my family or child required to self-isolate?

  • If you test positive you must isolate for 10 days from the start of symptoms or when you had a positive PCR test confirmed.
  • If you are in contact with someone who is positive you should book a PCR test and do NOT need to isolate if: you are under 18 OR have had both vaccines.
  • If you are in contact with someone who is positive and you are over 18 and have not had the vaccine you will need to self-isolate for 10 days from the last time you were in contact with the person who tested positive.

Remote Education in the event of a pupil self-isolating

If your child is isolating having been identified as a positive case (by PCR) assuming they are well enough to continue work please refer to the curriculum page which has a tab called "distance learning" on here there will links to the relevant learning your child is doing and some videos and activities to ensure they don't lose learning as a result of being at home.  Your child will also have a SeeSaw log in which will allow them to post relevant learning to be reviewed by their class teacher outside of their class teaching hours.
