Dear Parent / Carer,
Due to a further increase of cases we have consulted with the Local Authority and have been advised the following:
Children are recommended conduct daily lateral flow tests for 7 days. Parents can access home lateral flow kits on the following link: www.gov.uk/order-coronavirus-rapid-lateral-flow-tests.
Parents should report results on the government website (https://www.gov.uk/report-covid19-result), but there is no need for parents to report negative results to school.
If your child tests positive, please inform school and self-isolate in line with national guidelines. https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/
Whilst it is a strong recommendation from Public Health to follow the guidance above, if parents choose not to, children will not be prohibited from attending school.
