Positive Case of COVID in the Year 6 (6NB)

Letter for Year 6 Parents only

Date: 15/05/21

FOR PARENTS OF PUPILS IN 6NB AT Dovecote Primary School

Advice for Child to Self-Isolate

Today we have been advised by a parent that there has been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the school, this is a pupil in Year 6, in Miss Birch’s class. We have sought advice from Health and Safety at Nottingham City. Only one Year 6 class will need to isolate as the only time they mix is outside. 

We have followed the national guidance and have identified that your child may have been in close contact with the affected pupil. In line with the national guidance, we recommend that your child now stays at home and self-isolates until Tuesday 25th May. The only exception to this is if your child was absent on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday last week.  

We are asking you to do this to reduce the further spread of COVID 19 to others in the community.

If your child is well at the end of the period of self-isolation, then they can return to usual activities.

Other members of your household can continue normal activities provided your child does not develop symptoms within the self-isolation period.

Please see the link to: Guidance for contacts of people with confirmed coronavirus (COVID-19) infection who do not live with the person

https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/guidance-for-contacts-of-people-with-possible-or-confirmed-coronavirus-covid-19-infection-who-do-not-live-with-the-person

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared. Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119 . 

All other household members who remain well must stay at home and not leave the house for 10 days. This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’.

The 10-day period starts from the day when the first person in the house became ill.

Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home. If you require help with buying groceries, other shopping or picking up medication, or walking a dog, you should ask friends or family. Alternatively, you can order your shopping online and medication by phone or online.

Household members staying at home for 10 days will greatly reduce the overall amount of infection the household could pass on to others in the community

If you are able to, move any vulnerable individuals (such as the elderly and those with underlying health conditions) out of your home, to stay with friends or family for the duration of the home isolation period

We know that you may find this concerning but we are continuing to monitor the situation. This letter is to inform you of the current situation and provide advice on how to support your child. Please be reassured that for most people, coronavirus (COVID-19) will be a mild illness.

The children who may have been in direct prolonged contact with the confirmed case have been informed, 6NB, and will be staying at home until 25th May. We have sought advice from Nottingham City Health and Safety and only pupils who may have been in contact inside will need to isolate.

The school remains open and your child, if not in 6NB, should continue to attend if they remain well.

What to do if your child develops symptoms of COVID 19

If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must not come to school and should remain at home for at least 10 days from the date when their symptoms appeared unless they have a negative PCR test.
