Westhaven Covid-19 Procedure

Dear Parents and Carers, 

 

We are writing to inform you that we are experiencing an increased number of covid cases throughout the school at present. Please can you ensure your child is testing twice weekly as usual, these measures are in place because we are a SEN school. 

As you are aware, the guidance for the majority of us changed on the 24th February. With this in mind, we would like to confirm our guidance moving forwards. 

  • If your child receives a positive result, they should remain away from school for at least 5 days. Before returning to school, they will need to have received 2 consecutive negative LFD results 24 hours apart with the first test taken no earlier than Day 5. If negative results are not received, we ask that you keep your child home until they have received two negative results consecutively or until Day 10. 
  • If there is a positive test result within the household, we ask that your child moves to testing daily before arriving at school. If the result is negative, they can come to school. If positive, please follow the guidance above.

Yours sincerely,

Westhaven School
