Covid-19 Outbreak management plan (January 2022)

Please see our outbreak management plan below.  We will continue to monitor DfE guidance to schools regularly.  Alongside our outbreak management plan we will continue to also follow these protective measures:

  • Make sure people who are required to self-isolate don’t attend school
  • Close contacts of a positive case of coronavirus should take daily lateral flow tests for 7 days. This applies to all fully vaccinated adults (at least 2 doses) and pupils aged 5 years to 18 years and 6 months. As long as the tests are negative, staff and pupils should come into school as normal
  • Ask all parents and other visitors to your school to take a lateral flow test before they come
  • Advise everyone to clean their hands thoroughly and frequently
  • Make sure people practise good respiratory hygiene, and promote the ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’ approach
  • Maintain appropriate cleaning regimes
  • Keep occupied spaces well ventilated
  • Promote and engage with the NHS Test and Trace process
  • Manage confirmed coronavirus cases
  • Contain any outbreak by following advice from your local health protection team
  • Make sure individuals have the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), for example if they need to be in close contact with a student who develops symptoms or gets a positive lateral flow test at school
  • Promote and engage with asymptomatic home testing
