If your Son / Daughter has received a positive lateral flow test

Please book a PCR test as soon as possible to confirm the positive result:  Your Son/ Daughter should not attend school if they have a positive lateral flow test and are awaiting a PCR test.   If the PCR test is taken within 48hrs of the lateral flow and returns a negative result your Son / Daughter can return to school.


If your Son / Daughter has received a positive PCR Test


Your Son / Daughter should isolate for 10 days as per instructions from test and trace.  They should not return to school until they have completed 10 days isolation.


Close Contacts


Guidance for close contacts has recently changed and for students under the age of 18 and those over the age of 18 who are fully vaccinated, they no longer have to isolate.  This includes household contacts.    If you are a household or close contact you are advised to book a PCR test:  If you receive a negative result you can carry on as normal.  We would request that close contacts are alert to symptoms and if any appear to book a further PCR test.   

All contact tracing is now undertaken by NHS Test and Trace and schools are not required to contact trace.  Guidance can be found here:
