Staff and parents/carers: If you or your child are having to self-isolate, please ensure that you do so for 14 days even if you receive a negative test result within this period. In addition to this, if someone that you have been in contact with is waiting on test results please do not enter the premises until the results have come back  

When to self-isolate and what to do 

What is self-isolation? 

Self-isolation is when you do not leave your home because you have or might have coronavirus (COVID-19). 

This helps stop the virus spreading to other people. 

Self-isolation is different to: 

  • social distancing – general advice for everyone to avoid close contact with other people 
  • shielding – advice for people at high risk from coronavirus 


It’s a legal requirement to self-isolate if you test positive or are told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace. You could be fined if you do not self-isolate. 

When to self-isolate 

Self-isolate immediately if: 

  • you have any symptoms of coronavirus (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) 
  • you’ve tested positive for coronavirus – this means you have coronavirus 

If you think you’ve been in contact with someone who has coronavirus, but you do not have symptoms and have not been told to self-isolate, continue to follow social distancing advice. 

Please contact us if you have any questions or need any support.

Many thanks
