During the current pandemic phase we are continuing to monitor government guidance carefully and keep you informed of any developments.
We have a dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org 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
