Updated Guidance on Self Isolation for September 2021


Pupils, staff and other adults should follow public health advice on when to self-isolate and what to do.

1.They should not come into school if they have symptoms, have had a positive test result or other reasons requiring them to stay at home due to the risk of them passing on COVID-19 (for example, they are required to quarantine).

2. If anyone in our school develops COVID-19 symptoms, however mild, they will be sent home and they should follow public health advice.

3. Staff who do not need to isolate ie are fully vaccinated or are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons (in this case they must have informed their line manager or Mrs Bury), and children and young people aged under 18 years 6 months who usually attend school, and have been identified as a close contact, should continue to attend school as normal.

4. Staff/pupils who have symptoms should not attend the school, given the potential risk to others. If a parent or carer insists on a pupil attending your school, we will take the decision to refuse the pupil if, in our reasonable judgement, it is necessary to protect other pupils and staff from possible infection with COVID-19. Any decision would need to be carefully considered in light of all the circumstances and current public health advice

For your information
