COVID-19 Information for families
(updated September 2022)
As of 1st April, the government will take the next steps in the Living with Covid strategy.
The universal testing offer ends on 1st April. There is no requirement for students or staff to test regularly.
As from 1st April the following guidance applies if your child is unwell.
- Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they feel well enough to attend.
- 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.
- It is not recommended that children and young people are tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional.
- In the event that a Covid-19 test is taken, adults with a positive 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 will be 3 days.
There is no longer a requirement for students or staff to complete a negative test before returning to school once they have remained at home for the recommended period of time.
