Attendance if unwell

 

 Dear Parents/Carers

 

Attendance if unwell

At present our number of positive cases in school remains low, but we are not complacent. A reminder therefore that within our Attendance Policy we ask that if a student is not well and is likely to be ill during the day, they should not come into school as their attendance could lead to more widespread absence if their illness is infectious. This is clearly something that we would like to avoid for the benefit of students, staff and their wider communities.

 

Follow public health advice on testing, self-isolation and managing confirmed cases of COVID-19

 

When an individual develops COVID-19 symptoms or has a positive test

  • Students, staff and other adults should follow public health advice on when to self-isolate and what to do.
  • Students should not come into school if they have symptoms which, together with a high temperature, persistent cough and loss of taste and smell, now include headache, runny nose, sore throat, sneezing, persistent cough, or 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).
  • If anyone in school develops COVID-19 symptoms, however mild, they will need to go home and then follow public health advice.

 

Asymptomatic testing

Testing remains important in reducing the risk of transmission of infection within schools. That is why, whilst some measures are relaxed, others will remain, and if necessary, we are ready to step measures up or down in future depending on local circumstances.

Staff and students should continue to test twice weekly at home, with lateral flow device (LFD) test kits, 3 to 4 days apart. Testing remains voluntary but is strongly encouraged. We also retain a small asymptomatic testing site (ATS) on-site until further notice for students who are unable to test themselves at home.

 

Confirmatory PCR tests

Staff and pupils with a positive LFD test result should self-isolate in line with the “stay at home guidance for households with possible or confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection”. They will also need to get a free PCR test to check if they have COVID-19. Whilst awaiting the PCR result, the individual should continue to self-isolate. If the PCR test is taken within 2 days of the positive lateral flow test, and is negative, it overrides the self-test LFD test and the pupil can return to school, as long as the individual doesn’t have COVID-19 symptoms.

We have been notified today of another student who has tested positive. We continue to closely monitor and follow guidance from the DfE and Public Health England (PHE). In line with local public health guidance, we are alerting parents/carers of students who may have been in close contact with a positive case. It is recommended by Public Health that parents/carers arrange for students to take a PCR test and continue with regular LFT testing. This is advisory and the school is passing the message on. At present, there is no need for students to self-isolate or be absent from school unless they become symptomatic or test positive. You can find out how to arrange a test by clicking on the following link https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

 

The above information clarifies that anyone with no symptoms can get a PCR test if they have been in contact with someone who has tested positive or who has been asked to get a test by a local council.

If your child has no symptoms and has already had a PCR test as a result of a recent letter from the school, you may consider one further PCR test 4-7 days following receipt of this letter. Otherwise, it is recommended that you continue with regular lateral flow testing.

Thank you for your continued support.

Kind Regards,

Lindsworth School
