Coronavirus Information

Since March 2022, when the final Covid restrictions were lifted, the UK Health and Security Agency (UKHSA) has advised that COVID-19 should be managed like other respiratory infections, such as flu.

COVID-19 presents a low risk to children and young people. This, combined with high vaccination rates in the population, means there are no longer specific rules relating to COVID-19 in schools, colleges, childcare and other education settings.

Here’s what you need to know.


What happens if a staff member or my child tests positive for COVID-19?

For children and young people aged 18 and under who test positive for COVID-19, the advice is to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for three days. This is because children and young people tend to be infectious to other people for less time than adults.


Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result are advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days, which is when they are most infectious.

The UKHSA has also published public health guidance on living safely with respiratory infections, including COVID-19.


What measures are we taking to stop the spread?

We are doing the following to manage the spread of infection:

  • Reinforcing good hygiene practices such as regular hand washing and cleaning.
  • Ensuring occupied spaces are well-ventilated and let fresh air in.
  • Wiping down surfaces regularly


If you have any questions about when to return to school after your children has tested positive , please contact the school office on 01200 423539
