Self-isolation and testing
With effect from 16th August, fully vaccinated adults and children under 16, do not need to self-isolate if they are identified as a close contact or if someone in their household tests positive. They will need to isolate if they feel unwell with COVID-19 symptoms or have received a positive lateral flow test. In both of these cases, they should organise a PCR test as soon as possible.
Click here for more information on lateral flow and PCR tests and when to use which test.

If your child develops any of the key symptoms whilst here in school, we will contact you immediately and ask you to collect them and arrange for a test as soon as possible. While we are waiting for you to collect your child, they will be taken to a designated room with a member of staff who will stay with them until you arrive.
We would be grateful for you to let us know the outcome of any test.
