COVID UPDATE FOR 5M: IMPORTANT

Parents and Carers

We are following advice from the Health Protection Hub:

Unfortunately we now have around 30% of your child’s class having tested positive for COVID-19 over the last 10 days.

We are doing what we can to reduce transmission within the class and more widely across the school, but on the advice of the Health Protection Hub we will require sight of negative LFD test results before the children can come into school each day. Please email your result to lynne.stanley@taw.org.uk before your child arrives for school: we will accept your forwarding your NHS confirmation of negative lateral flow or a photograph of the test kit with result.

This will extend up to and including Friday 21st January.

The efforts that have been made by parents/carers in terms of being vigilant for symptoms and testing the children are greatly appreciated. This next step is an attempt to identify any asymptomatic children that may be coming into school and who haven’t already been identified through testing.

Advice on obtaining test kits is available by following these links:

As always, please ensure you are vigilant for symptoms and if your child does display symptoms, please keep them off school and book them a COVID test using this link:

As general advice, if your child is a household contact of a positive case we would also ask that they take daily LFD tests for a period of 7 days from the date of exposure to the positive case.

We thank you all for your support and send our best wishes to all of those affected.
