COVID NOTIFICATIONS - Track and Trace 19th-24th December

Dear parents and carers,

Just to clarify for our whole community. Schools have been given the opportunity by the Government to take Friday 18th December as a training day. We will, however, remain open as planned until the end of Friday18th

The Government recommend that schools ensure staff, parents and carers are aware of the following information:

 

  • Where a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the school should not be contacted.  Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
  • For the first 6 days after teaching ends, if a pupil or staff member tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, the school is asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in school.
  • Please note that school staff are not asked to remain on-call or conduct any contact tracing more than 6 days after the final day of teaching.

 
The Government announcement also states “Staff responsible for contact tracing may designate a limited period in the day to receive notification of positive cases and advise close contacts to self-isolate (this can be done by text or email).” 

Lady J staff will check the covid@ladyj.kent.sch.uk email address between 10-11am on 19th - 24th December inclusive.  Please do only use this email address to notify us as other email addresses may not be checked as regularly over this period.

 

Kind regards

Phil Chantler
