Following the change in government guidelines yesterday, please see the following update from Mrs Graver of the steps we will be taking at Greenpark Academy:
There is no legal requirement to test for Covid, however we will still be following the advice from Public Health England.
If you choose to test your child and receive a positive result, please stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 full days and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received 2 negative test results on consecutive days.
If your child has been in close contact with a positive case, they do not need to self-isolate or take daily tests and should continue to attend school.
If your child is showing mild cold symptoms they should come to school as normal.
The Government remains very clear that no child should miss school apart from in exceptional circumstances.
Free universal symptomatic and asymptomatic testing for the general public in England will end soon, although some higher risks groups may still be able to freely access testing in some way. The details of this are not yet clear.
If you need any further information, please contact the office on 01553 772018 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
