COVID Information for Parents - UPDATED February 2022

COVID Update

Dear parents/carers,

 

On Monday (21st February), the Government set out its ongoing response to enable the country to manage COVID-19 as part of the Living with COVID-19 plan. Several changes impact schools, which, although I am sure you will have read about, I wanted to share with you directly. 

 

From 21st February

Staff in schools are no longer encouraged to undertake twice-weekly asymptomatic testing. We will stop asking visitors to take a lateral flow test before coming onsite.

 

From 24th February

The legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive test will end. As is the case at the moment, adults and children who test positive will be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least five full days. They should continue to follow this guidance until they have tested negative on a lateral flow test on two consecutive days, or until they have spent 10 full days at home.

 

Fully vaccinated close contacts, and those aged under 18, will no longer be asked to test daily for seven days. Close contacts who are not fully vaccinated will not need to self-isolate. Routine contact tracing will end.

 

We are expecting more guidance from the Government on contact tracing and self-isolation on Thursday and will write to you again at the end of the week. We will also update our COVID-19 risk assessment once that guidance is published.

 

Staying safe

We can all reduce the risk of catching and passing on COVID-19 by:

  • Getting vaccinated
  • Letting fresh air in if meeting indoors, or meet outside
  • Considering wearing a a face covering in crowded, enclosed spaces.
  • Taking a PCR test if you have COVID-19 symptoms, and staying at home 
  • Avoiding contact with other people if you test positive; and
  • Washing your hands and following advice to ‘Catch it, Bin it, Kill it’.

 

As a school, we will continue to operate all additional hygiene procedures, such as use of hand gel and lunch time cleaning services. However, we can now start opening our doors to allow families back into school so we can continue to work together to support our children's learning.

I do hope the above is clear, but if you do have any questions do not hesitate to contact the school office.

 

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Lees
