Dear Parents, Carers and Friends

Latest news from the DfE.

New guidance for households with symptoms

Yesterday, the Government introduced new guidance on whole household isolation in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak:

  • if you live alone and you have symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), however mild, stay at home for 7 days from when your symptoms started

if you live with others and you or another member of the household have symptoms of coronavirus, then all household members must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days. The 14-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill. It is likely that people living within a household will infect each other or be infected already. Staying at home for 14 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the household.

The symptoms are:

  • A high temperature (37.8 degrees and above)
  • A new, continuous cough

For anyone in the household who starts displaying symptoms, they need to stay at home for 7 days from when the symptoms appeared, regardless of what day they are on in the original 14-day isolation.

The current medical and scientific advice is for schools and other educational establishments to stay open. If this changes and the Chief Medical Officer and the Chief Scientific Adviser say closing schools, colleges, and early years settings is in the best interests of children and teachers the Department will take that step.

Lady Lumley's View

We are following Government guidance and therefore we are staying open as long as we can.  Staff and students have been brilliant and sensible.  There may come a time soon where staff absence causes us to close or partially close the school but we are not there yet. There are no school trips planned at the moment and Grease rehearsals are cancelled.  Thank you to everybody for being so good in these unprecedented times.
