Make contact if testing has been delayed following onset of symptoms. 

If the case was not in setting there is no need to contact school.

I am setting up a designated number for parent to contact me in the event of a confirmed case between the close of school on Friday 18th December and Thursday 24th December. This number is 07541 644794 and must be used exclusively for contact tracing purposes and no other communications.

The phone line is active from 9am - 4pm.

Parental Responsibility

·       Parents to notify close contact family and friends and follow advice as per NHS Covid-19 guidelines http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

·       Seek tests via testing centres rather than via postal tests as this can significantly delay confirmation of results.  Results are normally forthcoming in 24 hours via test centres.

·       Follow the guidelines for Self Isolating

 

 Our top priority is the health and safety of our pupils and staff. We have carried out a detailed Risk Assessment (this can be viewed on the tab to the right hand side of this information) to ensure that our pupils and staff are as safe as they possibly can be. 

We continue to follow the government guidelines and update parents, carers and staff regularly with updates.

Covid-19 Self Isolation

If your child is self-isolating due to them (or someone else in your household) displaying symptoms it is important to let us know.  Please contact the school office 

If this occurs at the weekend, please contact us immediately at eward@leightonprimary.net/office@leightonprimary.net

Check if you or your child has coronavirus symptoms

If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test

Stay at home with the rest of your household until you get the result.

  • Get a test to check if you have coronavirus as soon as possible – call 119 to book this or go to NHS online https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19/
  • Stay at home and do not have visitors until you get your test result – only leave your home to have a test.
  • Anyone you live with, and anyone in your support bubble, must also stay at home until you get your result.
 Main symptoms

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
 Call 111 if you cannot get help online. Do not go to places like a GP surgery, hospital or pharmacy.

If your child seems very unwell, is getting worse or you think there’s something seriously wrong, call 999.

Do not delay getting help if you’re worried. Trust your instincts. If you have difficulty booking a test, contact us and we will try to support as best we can.

In summary:

  1. Go into household and bubble isolation
  2. Arrange for your child (and anyone else with symptoms) to be tested
  3. Tell us the outcome as soon as you can
  4. Only send your child back to school if s/he/they has a negative result or has completed the NHS isolation period
