Tuesday 17th March 2020
Following the announcement by the Government yesterday (16.03.2020) the guidance has now changed.
With immediate effect, if you OR a member of your household (i.e. anyone that lives permanently in your house) has either of the following symptoms the whole household should immediately self-isolate for the next 14 calendar days:
- A fever (at least 38 degrees)
- A dry constant cough that is newly developed.
Further information around self-isolation can be found on the NHS website: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/self-isolation-advice/
This applies to all staff and students with no exceptions.
If you are unsure whether you or your child should self isolate please use the NHS 111 website to clarify: https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19.
If you or your child are self-isolating please call your academy at your earliest convenience to record the absence in the normal way.
Please be assured that we are adhering to all guidelines to minimise the risk of transmission of COVID-19.
We are also increasing cleaning routines and restricting all unnecessary contact (i.e. cancelling school events and trips).
