We currently have 5% of our children not attending school due to a positive PCR and a further 5% awaiting PCR test results. The numbers are creeping up slowly, and we are urging any parents whose child is not feeling well/has a headache/been sick/had a temperature/ developed a new cough to take their child for a PCR test and not bring them into school until they have a result. The positive cases are in all year groups.
We are not part of the track and trace procedure any more, and we will be following our risk assessment if a child displays any of these symptoms when in school with us; that is to isolate children and to telephone emergency contacts, in the order they are on the list, to come and collect children as soon as possible.
We will continue to do our best to keep everybody as safe as we possibly can.
