COVID-19

9.9.21

 

Welcome back after the summer break.This is an update regarding COVID-19 procedures:

 

Government advice:

Close contacts of a positive COVID-19 case in all education and childcare sectors

 

From Monday 16 August unvaccinated young people up to the age of 18 years and 6 months and fully vaccinated adults, are no longer required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19.

 

Those identified as a close contact will be informed by NHS Test and Trace that they have been in close contact with a positive case and advised to take a PCR test. We strongly encourage all individuals to take a PCR test if advised to do so. There is no requirement to self-isolate while awaiting PCR test results and so individuals can attend their setting as usual.

 

Children and young people who attend an education or childcare setting and who have been identified as a close contact, should continue to attend their setting as normal.

 

18-year-olds will be treated in the same way as children and young people until 6 months after their 18th birthday, to allow them the opportunity to get fully vaccinated. At which point, they will be subject to the same rules as adults and so if they choose not to get vaccinated, they will need to self-isolate if identified as a close contact.”

 

-We will make you aware of any COVID cases where your child has been in direct contact. You may however also be contacted by NHS Test and Trace. We will continue to follow these procedures unless there is local COVID outbreak. We will inform you of any changes.

 

-Face masks are no longer required. If your child travels on public transport then it is recommended that they wear a face covering.

 

-Vaccinations- Reassurance for concerned families: we are not offering vaccinations in school for COVID19 and would never vaccinate without parental consent.
