COVID-19 Information

We have now moved away from a COVID Risk Assessment on the advice of our Heath & Safety Executive. Please see below our risk assessment for respiratory and other infections diseases.

New Risk Assessment - Respiratory & Other Infectious Diseases

Positive cases of COVID-19

We remain vigilant at school and following Government and Health Executive advice have now moved to our risk assessment for 'Respiratory and other infectious diseases'. Rest assured this involves continuing to manage Covid alongside all other infections diseases. Cleanliness and disease control remain a focus here at school.

If your child has had a positive case please let the school know as soon as you have had your results by clicking this link: Notify school of a positive COVID-19 result

Please continue to follow the government guidelines with regards to self-isolation: Stay at home guidance

If your child has COVID symptoms you can still get them a PCR test if needed.

If your child has:

  • A high temperature (38 degrees or above)
  • A new continuous cough
  • Loss of taste or smell

Book a full PCR test for them immediately.  We have a small number of PCR tests in school if you cannot get to a test centre, so please ask. If positive, your child will need to stay at home for three days, or if they still have a fever, until this has subsided, then they can return to school.

If your child is COVID positive they must remain at home for at least three days, or until their temperature returns to normal if this is more than three days.
