The government recommend that the NHS COVID 19 App is downloaded. If you test positive or are identified as a contact of someone who has recently tested positive for COVID-19, you will receive an email/text alert from the NHS Test and Trace Service advising that you must now self-isolate as soon as possible and stay at home. The message will advise the date of the isolation period and it is a legal duty to comply with this.
The email/text message can be used as evidence and you can download a letter from the Isolation Note Service (see link provided in the message). Schools will be asking staff and parents to provide evidence of the need to self isolate so that an accurate record can be kept in school.
If you have any issues providing this information, please speak to the Headteacher.
