Self-isolation

From Tuesday 11th January 2022, the guidance for Covid self-isolation has changed. From this date if your child tests positive on an lateral flow test, they no longer require a PCR test to confirm the result so long as they have no symptoms. This will be Day 0 of their isolation.

 

Please note that anybody displaying symptoms must still take a PCR test.

 

If a household member tests positive then children no longer need to self-isolate; however, they should do a lateral flow test each morning before coming to school.

 

Returning to school

Following a positive test (PCR or LF), the child must then take an LF on day 6 and day 7. These tests must be taken 24 hours apart and if both are negative then the child can return to school on day 8, as long as they do not have a raised temperature.

 

Please inform school on Day 7 that your child will be returning on Day 8 – do not send your child to school without informing us first.

 

If the tests are positive on days 6 and/or 7, then the child can only return to school once two negative tests have been obtained on two consecutive days, or once the full 10-day isolation period has been completed, if sooner, returning to school on Day 11.
