24th November Update

INFORMATION UPDATE-No Action Required

Dear Parents/Carers,

This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child.

Please be reassured that for most people, Coronavirus (COVID 19) will be a mild illness.

Yesterday (23rd November) we were informed of 2 more positive tests WITHIN THE SAME FAMILY. We now have further information to share. One child is in Year 6 and one child is in Year 1 and the family have told us they are feeling well.

BECAUSE the family followed government guidance and self-isolated, then got the children tested and then informed the school of the results, this has meant that both children have not been at school for 10 days (11 including today). This is why in accordance with Public Health England, no further action is needed AND ALL CHILDREN WHO ARE WELL CAN ATTEND SCHOOL AS NORMAL (except Caterpillars (2 Year old provision) who are self-isolating as a bubble).

Thank you to this family for following government guidance and we wish the family all the best and look forward to seeing them back at school at the end of their isolation period.

As stated yesterday, we are continually working alongside Norfolk Local Outbreak Management Centre, Public Health England and the Department of Education to monitor the situation.

  1. REMINDER

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID-19

Although your child has not been identified as a close contact, I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with general information on COVID-19.

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared and you should inform the school. We would also recommend getting a test as soon as possible. Information on testing is available via the links below or by calling NHS 119. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness. https://www.justonenorfolk.nhs.uk/test-trace

All other household members must also stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.
