Covid Update 1 April 2022
On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April. Updated guidance advises:
- Students who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.
- Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious
- For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days
- Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature.
Further information can be found on the government website.
We continue to be guided and follow the national advice; however, we also have to take our own context in to account and we are still experiencing a number of cases across the school community.
Therefore, we still strongly support all staff and students who wish to continue to wear face coverings, whether in a classroom or communal area. This is especially relevant in busy enclosed corridors, as students move between lessons. In essence, I want to keep children and staff as safe as possible whilst maintaining the normal running of the school.
If you have any queries, please contact your Leader of Year in the first instance.
