COVID-19 Updates

Edward Worlledge Covid Risk Assessment

School Information

If your child has any symptoms, listed below, please do a LFD:-

  • persistent cough
  • high temperature over 37.8
  • loss or change in taste or smell)

Please help us to keep the spread down – if too many staff test positive at any one time, it could be difficult to maintain 100% face to face teaching and we wish to avoid this at all costs. 

Government Guidance

Advice in England has changed – while you’re no longer legally required to self-isolate if you have COVID-19, you should try to stay at home and away from others to avoid passing on the virus.

It is recommended to isolate for 5 full days following a positive LFD test

The day your symptoms start, or the day you test positive if you do not have symptoms, counts as day zero.

You may leave self-isolation on day six if you test negative on a lateral flow on day five and day six, at least 24 hours apart, as long as you do not have a high temperature.

If one of these tests returns positive, you must wait until receiving two consecutive days of negative tests to leave isolation.

All test results should be reported to NHS Test and Trace.
