  • Covid-19 cases over the Easter holiday

    Published 01/04/21


    Over the first few days of the holiday, schools have been asked to help coordinate Public Health England’s response to any positive cases of Covid-19 amongst school age children.

    As such, if your child has a confirmed case before the 7th April, please contact us using  letting us know:

    • Your child’s name and class
    • When he / she was last in school
    • When he / she started to show symptoms
    • When he / she had a test
    • When the positive result was confirmed

    We will then contact members of staff and other children who might need to self-isolate.

    After the 7th, you should follow NHS advice and, if appropriate, let us know on the first day back, the 19th April, that your child is self-isolating following a positive test result.

    NHS advice can be found here:

    Further details:

    • If we are notified of a positive test by 7th April, and the child’s first symptoms occurred no less than 48 hours after their last day attending school (3rd April, if child attended on the 1st) we will attempt to trace contacts of that child in school, as per government advice, and following any further advice. We will usually email any contacts, so please do check emails regularly.
    • If a positive test result occurs after the 7th April, or symptoms occur 48 hours after the last attendance in school, we will not do any tracing as per government guidance. Track and trace will perform any tracing in these circumstances. However, please still let us know of a positive result. The graphic below may explain this more effectively.

  • Covid-19 - positve case in Y4 class

    Published 28/03/21

    We have been advised today that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school, in our Y4 class.

    We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. 

    The case is in our Y4 class, and the whole of the Y4 class have been asked to self-isolate. Although the child in question has siblings in other classes, the siblings had a negative test on Friday, and again today - as such, their classes are not affected. The whole family of the child that has tested positive are now in self-isolation. 

    Only children in Y4 need to self-isolate as the children are kept in strict bubbles during the school day. The school remains open and children NOT in Y4 should continue to attend as normal if they remain well and symptom free. 


    What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19  

    If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for a PCR test (the normally available test type) and this can be arranged via or by calling 119.   

    All other household members who remain well, must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’. 

    Further information is available at:  

    The household isolation period includes the day the first person in your household’s symptoms started (or the day their test was taken if they did not have symptoms) and the next 10 full days. This means that if, for example, your 10 day isolation period starts on the 15th of the month, your isolation period ends at 23:59 hrs on the 25th and you can return to your normal routine. 
    Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.  

    If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online. 

    Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community 

    If you are able, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period. 


    The most common symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are recent onset of: 

    • a new continuous cough 

    • a high temperature 

    • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia) 

    For most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. 

    If your child does develop symptoms, you can seek advice from the website at If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek advice from NHS 111 at or by phoning 111. 

    How to stop COVID-19 spreading 

    There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with COVID-19 


    • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds  

    • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available 

    • wash your hands as soon as you get home 

    • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze 

    • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards
