COVID testing clarification
We have had a number of children who have been ill with COVID type symptoms- such as coughs and a high temperature. As a school, we have to follow the guidance set out by the DfE and Public Health England. This guidance is constantly changing but at the moment it stipulates that if a child has symptoms they must book online and have a full PCR test- a lateral flow test will not suffice. Whilst waiting for the test results, all family members should isolate. I understand that this can be very inconvenient for families but there have been a number of outbreaks in local schools and we are keen to prevent this happening at our school.
