April 2022 Covid-19 update
Symptoms of Covid-19
Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
Positive PCR or LFT
The current advice is not to test unless you work in a health or social care setting.
If your child does have a positive test, current regulations state they should isolate for 3 days. 5 days for an adult. Provided a child has not got a temperature or sickness after 3 days, they are welcome back at school.
Close contact or positive case in the home
The current advice states that close contacts are to continue life as normal.
Please send all positive test results to school so we can keep an accurate record of cases and ensure your child's absence is marked correctly.
Covid response under the National School Breakfast Programme
Our school has signed up to receive free healthy breakfast food as part of the Covid response offer, under the National School Breakfast Programme (NSBP), which is being delivered by the charities Family Action and Magic Breakfast.
As part of this government funded programme, schools can choose to offer children a healthy breakfast at school or at home. Initially we provided some families with a Breakfast Bag for the holidays. When we returned in September, the whole school benefited from Breakfast Bags for the first couple of weeks.
Since then, we have been offering bagel breakfast for children in their classrooms.
The benefits of a healthy breakfast include children being settled and ready to learn at the start of the day. Please speak to Mrs. McNamara, via the School Office, if you need any further support.
