Working closely with North Tyneside Council and Public Health England the school continues to ensure that we operate safely, and that we minimise the spread of the virus.
This includes maintaining high standards of hygiene inside and outside classroom settings, grouping children in ‘bubbles’ and maintaining social distancing where ever possible.
As parents or carers, you can support the endeavours to help control the virus in North Tyneside by adhering to the national restrictions, maintaining social distancing and good hand hygiene.
We are also asking that you please keep your child at home if anyone else in the household is suspected of having covid, awaiting a covid test result or has had a positive test for COVID-19, or if your child has any of the following symptoms of Covid-19: A fever – this means hot to the touch on the chest or back
A continuous cough - a dry cough and coughing a lot for over an hour with more than 3 episodes per day
Loss or change of taste and smell - this means no smell or taste, or things smell or taste different to normal
If you receive a positive covid test result for your child please contact school immediately. If this is out of school hours or at the weekend or in a school holiday please email school immediately at email@example.com.
If your son or daughter receives a positive COVID-19 test after Friday 28th May until Monday31st May please contact the school immediately by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide the following information:
Name of child
Date of the COVID-19 test
Does the child have symptoms? Yes or No
What date did the symptoms start?
What date did the child last attend school?
It is very important that you provide this information so that the school can identify any close contacts that your son or daughter may have had in school during their infectious period. The school will then follow up close contacts and request that they isolate for 10 days to prevent further transmission of COVID-19.
Please read the document below to check symptoms of Covid 19 against those for flu and colds.
