COVID-19 Updates

Contact tracing during the Easter holidays

The DfE and Public Health England (PHE) expect schools to have procedures in place for contact tracing for the first six days of the Easter holidays:

What this means in practice is:

That school should be notified of any pupil who has been attending school

and goes on to develop Covid symptoms on (or before):

Friday 2nd April or Saturday 3rd April and subsequently tests positive for the virus.

If parents/carers need to notify us about this during the holidays, then this must be done only through the email: covid19@cdatstpaulsprimary.co.uk 

 and leave the following information:

  • The name of your child (who has tested positive and attends St Paul’s CE Primary)
  • Name of their class and class teacher
  • Date when your child was last in school
  • Symptoms that were being displayed and the date they started
  • The date the test was taken
  • The date of the positive test

The  covid19@cdatstpaulsprimary.co.uk email address will be checked each morning at 8.30am up to and including Wednesday 7th April.

If a positive case is reported, we will need to get in touch with parents of any pupils identified as contacts and advise that their child will have to self-isolate for 10 days from the last day of contact; this will be done via the school spider email system only. Please be aware that we will not be phoning parents or responding to email queries during the holidays.

We all hope that you stay safe and well and have a good and peaceful Easter with your families. We return to school on Monday 19th April at the same staggered start times and same entrances.

Yours sincerely

Mr Wright

Essential Reminder about Covid Symptoms

If anyone in your household (and support bubble) is displaying any of the main covid symptoms, then all members of the household (and anyone in your support bubble) needs to stay at home and isolate.

Your child must not attend school in these circumstances.

The individual with symptoms needs to book a test. Please inform us of the results when you have them.

Please email school admin@cdatstpaulsprimary.co.uk  and leave the following information and also phone school:

  • The name of your child (who has tested positive and attends St Paul’s CE Primary)
  • Name of their class and class teacher
  • Date when your child was last in school
  • Symptoms that were being displayed and the date they started
  • The date the test was taken
  • The date of the positive test

By doing this we all reduce the risk of transmission and the need to have to inform wider groups of people, of the need to self-isolate.

If we have to inform you of a positive case in the school community and advise that your child would needs to self-isolate, then we would do this through the school spider email system. 

The main Covid symptoms are:

·         a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)

·        a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)

·        a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

Thank you in advance for your support with this.
