Risk Assessments and Parent Information

Dear parents and carers,

 We will continue to follow government advice regarding Coronavirus/Covid-19. 

Please ensure you help us to minimise and control the spread of COVID19.

Please remember it is vital to self isolate and seek a test if any of the following symptoms present themselves:

 - a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal.
 
If you are a close contact for someone who has tested positive we also ask that you keep us informed and follow the government guidelines to isolate and seek a test.
 
Three categories of close contact: 
 
1. Direct face to face contact for any length of time
2. Within 1m for 1 minute or more
3. Within 2m for 15 minutes or more
 
When managing a positive case in school we will follow the DFE Early Outbreak Management:
Identify, Report, Respond
