Our school has returned to be fully open and is currently operating a 'Step-down' approach (see below). Please also find our risk assessment below. Parents are also updated with routines and information through our weekly school news.
Children, staff, parents, or visitors should not come onto site if they have symptoms:
• high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
• new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
• loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Anyone who develops symptoms of COVID-19 should immediately self-isolate and have a PCR test.
Their household members should also self-isolate unless they meet the exemption
criteria for self -isolation (you are fully vaccinated/you are below the age of 18 years 6 months/you have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial/you are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons). If a positive PCR is confirmed then 10 days isolation follows.
CHILDREN WHO ARE CLOSE CONTACTS OF POSITIVE CASES ARE ASKED TO
DO A PCR AND REGULAR LFD TESTS.
‘STEP UP’ PLAN
The school has an outbreak management plan outlining how we would operate if there were an outbreak in the school or local area. The essence of this plan is that we would ‘step back up’ to previous measures as appropriate (bubbles, social distancing etc)
Please see below for our current coronovirus managment plan at our school and also the 'Step-up/Step-down overview.
