During the current lockdown phase we will continue to monitor government guidance carefully and keep you informed of any developments.  We have a dedicated email address, covid@priestlands.hants.sch.uk specifically for reporting contacts and positive cases.  We particularly encourage you to use this if you have a case to report outside of school hours as it will be monitored regularly.  It is essential that all parents are monitoring children carefully for Covid symptoms and if they show any one of the symptoms below, you must keep them at home and get a test.  They must not leave the house until you get the result of that test.

  • A high temperature
  • A persistent cough
  • A loss of taste or smell

Individual students who are isolating for a short period (10-14 days) will have their work set on ShowMyHomework.  Students will be expected to follow their normal school timetable as closely as possible and should submit completed work through ShowMyHomework.  Students who are ill will not have work set on the basis that if they are not well enough to come into school then they are unlikely to be well enough to complete work.
