Covid 19 Information April 22

As the pandemic evolves the school continues to work with UKHSA, the LSP and North Somerset Council.

You can also find further information in our newsletters which you will find on the News and Events tab of the menu bar.

Our Covid 19 risk assessment has been discontinued and been replaced across our Trust with a school Respiratory & Other Infectious Diseases Risk Assessment.

From 1st of April guidance changed.                   

Changes to measures and guidance for managing COVID-19 in education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April

  • Free COVID-19 tests will continue to be available for specific groups, including eligible patients and NHS staff, once the universal testing offer ends on Friday 1 April.
  • On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Guidance advises:

  • 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
  • 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, college or childcare when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend
  • adults with a positive COVID-19 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

Moving Forward

Continuing to follow good health and hygiene continues to be our best defence against Covid 19 as it is with all respiratory illnesses. We will continue with hand washing, ventilation, sniffle stations and regular cleaning.
