The legal requirement to self-isolate has been removed, though staff and pupils are advised to try to stay home if they have symptoms of a respiratory infection and a high temperature, or if they feel unwell (returning to school when they feel well enough, and no longer have a high temperature)
Asymptomatic testing is no longer expected in schools, and schools can't order free lateral flow tests anymore.
Those with a positive test result will be advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people:
- Staff for 5 days
- Pupils for 3 days
Following the COVID-19 outbreak, a catch-up premium has been designed to mitigate the effects of the unique disruption caused by coronavirus (COVID-19). This grant will only be available for the 2020 to 2021 academic year. Additional information is linked on this page alongside our Spending plan to support leaners at The Kassia Academy.
