Covid Cases - Testing advice

Although the school has had, and remains to have, low levels of child based covid cases, we are gradually seeing a rise in numbers of children testing positive.


I emphasise that this remains low.


However, as we are witnessing a rise in numbers testing positive on Lateral Flow Tests (30 minute test) and awaiting the full PCR (lab test) results, we advise parents of the following (advice from NHS England states)


  • Continue strict hygiene routines, washing your hands thoroughly and regularly
  • Maintain as much social distancing as possible
  • You should wear face coverings in crowded and enclosed areas where you come into contact with people you do not usually meet
  • Ventilate rooms and allow movement of air throughout buildings where possible
  • Get vaccinated
  • Get tested if you have symptoms


I am aware of several schools where Covid infection has resulted in significant disruption to school life.  It is hoped that by working together, our school community can reduce the impact it has on us and our local community.
