Tuesday 19th October 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Thank you for your support this half term. Testing remains absolutely vital to reducing transmission of Covid19 at Sherwood and we appreciate your support when restricted attendance measures are put in place. The aim of restricted attendance is to reduce further transmission of Covid19 in a class once the outbreak threshold is met. At the outbreak stage, pupils will also refrain from singing and playground zones will be observed between year groups.  

If there has been a confirmed case of Covid19 in your child’s class, we strongly advise a PCR test for your child. Updated notification of confirmed cases of Covid19 in the last 10 days are listed below by class.

If there is a confirmed case of Covid19 in your household, we urge you to consider isolating all children or siblings for the duration of the isolation period. We have evidenced a strong pattern with siblings testing positive for the virus 4-5 days after another sibiling in School. If you would like your child/sibling to continue attending School, please obtain regular PCR tests and share the negative result(s) with School. Absence for household isolation will be authorised and will potentially break chains of transmission into other classes.

  • Please notify us as soon as possible if your child has had a positive Covid-19 test.
  • If your child has symptoms of Covid-19 they must isolate and book a PCR test immediately, then follow the advice you're given when you get the result.
  • Home LFD test kits must not be used to test a pupil with symptoms. A PCR negative test result is required before your child attends School.
  • If your child has other symptoms or is not feeling well, then stay away from school as you normally would if your child was unwell. We also advise that you seek a PCR test for your child - the virus is presenting in children with a variety of symptoms.
  • Anyone who has previously received a positive Covid-19 PCR test result should not be re-tested within 90 days of that test, unless they develop any new symptoms of Covid-19.
  • Continue with routine twice weekly LFD testing at home if your family is participating.
  • Consider participating in twice weekly LFD testing if your family has yet to participate.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs J Lumb
