What the latest advice on testing and self-isolation means for education settings

7.4.22

The NHS COVID-19 symptoms in adults and symptoms in children have been updated. Pupils with symptoms of COVID-19 are no longer advised to get a test.

Adults and children who have symptoms of a respiratory infection, including COVID-19, should follow the UKHSA guidance. Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. They can go back to school, college or childcare and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend.

The NHS is offering coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines to children aged 5 to 11 years. You can call the National Booking Service on 119 to make an appointment. You will need to take your child to a local pharmacy or vaccination centre.

28.2.22

· On Monday 21 February, the Prime Minister announced the removal of measures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic.

· Marine Park First School is open.  COVID-19 continues to be a virus that we learn to live with and the imperative to reduce the disruption to children and young people’s education remains.

· From 24 February, the Government removed the legal requirement to self-isolate following a positive test. Routine contact tracing has also ended. Adults and children who have the main symptoms or test positive continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received 2 negative test results on consecutive days. If your child is staying at home because they have symptoms or test positive, please refer to the Remote Learning section of the website. Easy to follow learning schedules, the contact details for teachers and supplementary activity materials are available 24/7 in the Remote Learning Section.

· Regular testing is no longer advised.

· Face coverings are no longer advised for pupils, staff and visitors in classrooms and communal areas.

· If the number of positive cases substantially increases in school, the school will follow advice from local directors of public health; in this event, additional measures (such as testing, face coverings) may be (re) introduced.

· Day-to-day systems such as ventilation, hygiene and encouraging vaccination uptake, as well as following any additional advice from local directors of public health, will remain in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in school.
