This page has been created to provide one central point for all relevant COVID-19 related information for parents.
Please click here for information regarding what to do if your child displays any of the symptoms of COVID-19 (listed below).
If you need to report a COVID related absence for your child during the school day, please contact the school absence line as normal (01438 813267, option 1). If this is in the evening or over the weekend, please email email@example.com as it is crucial that we pick your message up immediately so that we can act quickly to trace contacts.
If your child has been in close contact with a positive case and has been asked to self-isolate, they must isolate for a full 14 days (unless they develop symptoms and have a subsequent positive test). A negative test will not allow a return to school during this time. During this time, your child should not leave your home for any reason (guidance can be found here).
If your child develops symptoms and has a subsequent positive test, they will need to self-isolate for 10 days from the date when their symptoms started. All other household members must self-isolate for 14 days.
The date of symptom onset is day zero.
On Sunday 20th December, Hertfordshire moved to Tier 4, please see the table below detailing the current restrictions and help to protect our children and staff, Thank you.

Letter for Parents from the DoE about COVID-19 symptoms
Public Health England have produced a letter for schools to distribute to parents which explains when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are. The Department have asked us to share and circulate this letter amongst parents at our school.
The intention of the letter is to help prevent children being taken out of school unnecessarily and answer some of the questions parents may have around testing. Please click on the link below:
