What to do if you are a parent/carer who has COVID-19 and is self-isolating, and therefore cannot transport your child to and from school
In line with the latest Government COVID-19 guidance, if a parent/carer is self-isolating with COVID-19, your child should have a PCR test as soon as possible and can still attend school if they do not have symptoms.
If you are in this situation and are unable to transport your child to and from school because you are self-isolating, and you have not been able to identify a trusted friend or relative who could help, please let the school know so we can try to assist. Please note that if your child tests positive for COVID-19 they are legally required to self-isolate. Contact reception for more information.
Home testing should be completed twice each week:
Test 1 - Sunday evening or Monday morning
Test 2 - Wednesday evening or Thursday morning
Results will be checked on Monday and Thursday.
Please call reception if you have had any issue submitting results
