Dear Parent/Carer

Living with COVID-19 Guidance

I am writing with reference to the Government's new Living with COVID-19 guidance, which has introduced new changes for anyone who has symptoms of or who tests positive for COVID.

Students who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. Although weekly testing has stopped, should your child test positively for COVID then they need to remain away from school for at least three days after the result, and can then return to school if they are well enough to do so. Please note, the school will no longer provide work for students away with COVID, in line with our policy for students at home unwell.

Finally, many thanks for your support over this difficult term. I am pleased that the current COVID position is much more positive and hope that, regardless of how it progresses, it has minimal effect on our students’ education moving forwards.

Have a restful Easter,

Mr Parkes
