Covid-19 attendance guidance April 2022
‘If a child or young person has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test. The risk of passing the infection on to others is much lower after 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature. Children and young people who usually attend an education or childcare setting and who live with someone who has a positive COVID-19 test result should continue to attend as normal.’ Therefore, if your child tests positive for COVID -19 they may return to school on day 4, as long as they feel well enough and no longer have a temperature.
We would ask that you continue to inform school if your child tests positive. You can do this by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling the school office.
If your child has mild symptoms of any respiratory illness, for example a runny nose, sore throat, or mild cough, they can continue to attend school if well enough to do so. Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature of 38C or more should stay at home and where possible avoid contact with other people. They can come back to school when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough.
