Updated Guidance from Public Health Warrington

All adults who are fully vaccinated and children aged 5 to 18 years and 6 months, identified as a contact of someone with COVID-19 – whether Omicron or not – should take a lateral flow device (LFD) test every day for 7 days instead of self-isolating. Daily testing by close contacts will help to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Daily testing for contacts of COVID-19 will help protect education settings by reducing transmission and will also help keep pupils in face-to-face education.

Once notified by NHS Test and Trace as a close contact, all eligible staff, pupils and family members should take an LFD each day for 7 days and report the results through the Online Reporting System and to their setting if the test is positive. If they test negative, they can continue to attend their education setting.

If they test positive, they should self-isolate and order a PCR test to confirm the result. If the PCR is positive, they must self-isolate for 10 days. If the PCR test is negative, they no longer need to self-isolate but should continue to carry out the remainder of the daily tests, and only need to isolate if it is positive. If a child or pupil tests positive they may be able to end their self-isolation period before the end of the 10 full days. They can take a lateral flow device (LFD) test from 6 days after the day symptoms started and another LFD test on the following day. The second LFD test should be taken at least 24 hours later. If both these test results are negative, and the child or pupil does not have a high temperature, they may end their self-isolation after the second negative test result, and return to their education setting.

Children under five years old do not need to take part in daily testing for contacts of COVID-19 and do not need to isolate.

Covid Advice on When to IsolateCovid parent poster

If somebody in your household develops symptoms or is advised to go for a test please DO NOT send your child into school.

By doing so you potentially put other families and staff at risk of contracting COVID-19.

You MUST keep your children at home until you recieve a negative test. When a negative test is received we can welcome your child back to school. If you receive a positive test, the rest of your household must isolate for 14 days.

If you are unsure  what to do, please click on this poster image or contact the school office via Live Chat.

Safe Practice for School Arrival and Leaving - updated

Whilst we have measures in place to reduce the number of people arriving at school for drop off and pick up each day, we appreciate that there is limited space on the pavements outside school. With this in mind we politely request that you arrive on time for your child's slot at the start & end of the day and avoid waiting outside the gates for long periods - this reduces the risk of bubbles crossing and keeps all of us safe. We also remind you of the need to wear a face mask and maintain social distancing of 2m when entering and leaving the school site and would encorage parents to continue to do this in September.

IF YOUR CHILD IS IN THE SECOND SLOT, PLEASE ONLY ARRIVE AT SCHOOL TO DROP OFF FROM 8.55AM SO THE SCHOOL SITE IS CLEARER.

We have Gate Supervisors on each of the gates who will be there to ensure our school stays safe and will be able to answer any questions about school access.

Below are the groups, the classes and the subsets.  We have deliberately put children in subsets according to family groups so as to minimise the potential for whole school shut down if there is a local outbreak.  This may mean children will be working with other children in the year group different from their previous class.  We are prioritising public health and this prority will continue in September.  Pupil groups/classes will not be changed.  Signs are up showing which Gate, for which class, at which time.

Parents are discouraged from going onto the main playground in the morning and must be prompt both drop off and pick up.
