Sickness guidance

Please see our attached document and link regarding advice for common childhood illness and ailments.  If further advice needed, please bring your child to school and speak with the school office who will advise accordingly.



The Department for Education has confirmed that

 “All positive results from rapid tests undertaken at home do need to be confirmed with a standard PCR test. This is because these tests are not conducted in a controlled environment and will not have trained staff on hand. Following a positive LFD test at home, a confirmatory PCR test should be booked online or by calling 119. 

Whilst awaiting the PCR result, the pupil or student and their close contacts should self-isolate

If the PCR test is negative, it overrides the self-test LFD test (at home only) and a child can return to school.”
