From Monday 16th March, Government advice has changed once more:
What does this mean for families and attendance at school?
As a result of the updated advice, parents/carers should follow the national message below:
Stay at home for 7 days if you have either:
- a high temperature (37.8 degrees or higher)
- a new, continuous cough
If someone in your household has the symptoms, the rest of the household must self-isolate for 14 days.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.
Further information can be found by clicking on the NHS link below.
We understand that this will cause challenges in relation to how parents/carers make decisions on the level of symptoms and if they actually meeting the criteria but we know that people will make sensible decisions during this difficult time.
What will the implications be for school management?
School staff will, of course, have to make similar decisions and, as a school team, we will manage this to the best of our ability.
Over the next few weeks, we will keep people updated with information, particularly where events (e.g. festivals and visits) may be cancelled.
Thank you for your cooperation and understanding at this time.
