Covid -19 Info for Parents

The self-isolation guidance has changed. The 10-day self-isolation period for those who record a positive PCR test result for Covid-19 has been reduced to 5 days in most circumstances.  The DfE has confirmed that this applies to children who attend school. Individuals may now take rapid lateral flow tests on day 5 and day 6 of their self-isolation period. If those test results are negative they no longer have to complete 10 full days of self-isolation and can return to school immediately.

From 14 December 2021, adults who are fully vaccinated and all children and young people aged between 5 and 18 years and 6 months identified as a contact of someone with COVID-19 are strongly advised to take a LFD test every day and continue to attend their setting as normal, unless they have a positive test result.

Please be aware of new Suffolk County Council Public Health guidance effective from November 1st 2021 (reviewed fortnightly):

 

  • Entry to school is restricted to staff and essential visitors only.
  • Any visitors to wear a face covering while on-site, this includes adults collecting children in the playground.
  • Staff are required to wear face coverings in communal areas outside of the classroom, unless exempt for medical reasons.
  • From November 15th, the sibling rule will no longer apply to level 1 and 2 schools.  Vaccinated staff and pupils will be asked to continue to attend and undertake a daily LFD test.
