Covid 19 Update

As we navigate working and ‘living with Covid’ , and staff and children settle into their new routines, we encourage everyone to follow the government advice for COVID-19: people with COVID-19 and their contacts and ensure that 


  • If you / your child are showing symptoms of coronavirus you stay at home, and book a PCR test.
  • If you / your child test positive (via PCR or LFD), you should stay at home and isolate for the required period.

Ensuring that those who show symptoms or test positive do not come into school is key to reducing the spread of infection and protecting others in your settings and the community.


Please see the letter below from the Director of Public Health David Regan that you can share with parents/carers to highlight the importance of following the guidance.
