Dear Parents/Guardians,

There is a positive case of Covid-19 within the following class bubble:

  • Nursery Mrs Warne's class: 1

At this time please remain vigilant for the signs and symptoms of Covid-19.  

The current advice remains that if a child aged 5 and over, or a staff member, develops new symptoms of COVID-19 they should isolate and arrange a PCR.  A PCR test should then be booked via or by telephoning 119. This applies even if they have had COVID-19 within the previous 90 days or have had a negative
lateral flow result on the same day as developing symptoms or a negative PCR test prior to developing symptoms.

The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are recent onset of:

  • A new continuous cough and/or
  • A high temperature and/or
  • A loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).

If anyone within your household tests positive for Covid-19 or are awaiting test results, please inform us before you send your child to school.

Kind Regards,

Mrs S. McCafferty
