Dear Parents and Carers,

We have been made aware of a number of positive Covid tests within our school community.

We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation and are working closely with Public Health England. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide you with advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

Following our own track and trace procedures we have no reason to believe that your son or daughter will be affected by the cases in school.

If your child does develop symptoms of COVID-19, you must request a test. The results of the test will have implications on you and your family. You can seek advice from the NHS website at https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/check-if-you-have-coronavirus-symptoms/. If you are concerned about your child’s symptoms, or they are worsening you can seek further advice from NHS 111 at https://111.nhs.uk/ or by phoning 111.

To arrange a test for you or someone in your family, you can follow this link. https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119. Please remember that if someone in your household is showing symptoms, then you all must isolate until you have had the test result, at which point you will be advised further.

More information is available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-stay-at-homeguidance/stay-at-home-guidance-for-households-with-possible-coronavirus-covid-19-infection.

If you would rather talk to a member of staff for clarification, or simply reassurance, please use the following email address croylandprimaryrespo@croylandprimary.org.uk. We will try to respond as soon as we can.

Kind regards

Miss L Deakin

Head teacher
