Since 19th July, schools are no longer responsible for identifying close contacts of pupils who test positive for COVID-19. Instead, close contacts will be notified by NHS Test and Trace and given advice and instruction about isolating.
Close contacts will be informed by NHS Test and Trace, but in the meantime, please be alert to the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 infection:
• A high temperature
• A new continuous cough
• A loss of change to your sense of taste or smell
If your child develops one of these symptoms, please keep them at home and book a PCR test (online at: https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by phoning 119 between 7am and 11pm) and stay at home until you receive a result.
