How to report a COVID-19 case
If you have a case to report, please contact the school on 0116 271 4941.
Please note: voicemail, email or School Gateway messages should only be used to confirm details of a conversation held between parents and staff.
Please report immediately:
- any child with symptoms
- any tests taken by your child or others in your household
- any test results
Your child should stay off school:
- if your child display symptoms
- if anyone in the household displays symptoms
- while awaiting a test result
- if there is a positive a test result in your household
- if they have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive
- if they have been advised to self-isolate
Please help us reduce the risk for all by:
- following the government’s coronavirus advice
- wearing a mask (unless exempt)
- adhering to social distancing
- washing or sanitising hands regularly
- Self-isolation means your child must remain at home both during the school week and during weekends.
- They shouldn’t be taking part in any activities such as sport during this self-isolation period or coming into contact with anyone outside of their home.
- Your child should also remain at home while taking other children within the household to school.
- Your child must stay at home for 10 days. This is because it can take several days before an individual develops symptoms, or the virus can be detected.
- If a child has been identified as a contact, a negative test result does not mean they can return to school earlier.
Note: although the whole family doesn’t have to self-isolate unless your child themselves develops symptoms, you may wish to take extra care during this period, especially to minimise contact you have with older relatives.
