Covid-19 Reporting of Positive Cases During the Easter Break

If your child tests positive for Coronavirus (Covid-19) during the Easter break (02 April 2021 – 18 April 2021 inclusive), please report this to the school via our Trust’s positive pupil case notification form, which can be accessed here: Report your child has tested positive for Covid-19

 

Please be aware that if your child records a positive result for Covid-19 using a rapid LFD test kit at home, a PCR test should be booked online or by calling 119 to confirm the positive result. Whilst awaiting the PCR test result your child and their close contacts should self-isolate.

 

Please ensure that you complete the positive pupil case notification form as soon as possible if your child tests positive using a rapid LFD test, please do not wait for the result of the PCR test.
