COVID Testing update

Wednesday, February 3, 2021

The guidance for our Covid testing in school has been updated. 

The guidance for our Covid testing in school has been updated. Anyone testing positive using our lateral flow tests will no longer need to take a confirmatory PCR test at an external test site. They will need to self-isolate for 10 days and school will identify any close contacts. Staff are now being tested twice per week and we are planning to also include students on-site in the regular testing, rather than just testing on return to school. We do not yet know what is intended for testing students when school reopens for all students but will update parents when we have information.

To contact us with any Coronavirus-related issues please use our dedicated email address: covid@dysonperrins.worcs.sch.uk.

Do not send your child to school if they or any member of your household has symptoms. If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.

The main symptoms of coronavirus are:

If anyone in your household tests positive, the whole household must self-isolate https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus- covid-19/self-isolation-and-treatment/how-long-to-self-isolate/
