April 2022 Update 

With the removal of legal restrictions by the Government, the School will be putting in place the following procedure. More detail can be found by clicking on the document below, but a summary follows.

1) There is no legal requirement to self-isolate if someone has symptoms of Covid or a postive test result.

2) Those adults with symptoms or a positive test result are still advised to self-isolate for 5 days and look for negative LFT test result from day 5 onward. Children are advised to remain away from school for 3 days.

In line with the advised move toward treating Covid as any other infectious illness (see recent Suffolk Local Authority guidance in this regard) the School is aligning its approach in common with its policy concerning vomitting/diarrhea illnesses i.e. that:

a) children with symptoms or a postive test should remain away from school for 48 hours

b) Parents should then reevaluate. If there is no ongoing temperature in particular, or no heavy coughing, and the child is well within themselves, then they are able to return to school.

c) If the child continues to run a high temperature, has a persistent cough, or is generally not fit for school, then they should remain at home until such time as these symptoms subside.

The School notes it retains the final decision as to whether a child is fit to be in school.

This approach will be subject to ongoing monitoring.

Personal hygiene is the most important way we can tackle COVID-19, especially washing hands more; and the catch it, bin it, kill it strategy for those with coughs and sneezes.

How to wash your hands properly

Wash your hands more often for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.

Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport.
