Information for Parents

Please find a letter here from the Local Authority for the spring and summer terms.

Our Quick Guide for Parents on new Government guidance from April 2022:

  • If your child has symptoms of Covid-19 you can order a PCR test.
  • If your child has a positive result, there is no legal requirement to isolate, but the advice is 'to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days after the day they took the test, if they can'.
  • Close contacts are no longer required to isolate and contact tracing has ended.

Government information for parents on the vaccination programme
