Oasis Shirley Park Primary and Secondary Phases
Reporting COVID-19 over the half term
Thank you for your continued support of all we are doing to reduce the risk of Covid-19 for all students, families and staff. Please read the following as a reminder of what to do if your child shows the symptoms of Covid-19
COVID-19 exists in our wider community and therefore it is important to be especially aware of how your child is and whether they have symptoms of COVID-19. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are a recent:
- new continuous cough and/or
- high temperature and/or
- a loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)
If your child develops symptoms of COVID-19, they must get a test and remain at home for at least 10 days from when their symptoms first appeared until they receive a negative test result. Anyone with symptoms can receive a test by going to https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
Please remember you must isolate for 10 days from the date of your first symptoms of COVID and if you do not have symptoms (asymptomatic) you must isolate for 10 days from the date of your positive test result.
Before or on 7th April
If your child has a positive case for COVID-19 between finishing school and the 7th April 2021, please inform us as soon as possible by contacting Jo.firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone on 020 8662 7321, so we can track and inform close contacts.
After 7th April and until we return to the Academy
If your child has a positive case for COVID-19 after 7th April 2021, please inform us by contacting Jo.email@example.com . While we will not have to complete contact tracing, we will be able to discuss with you when your child can return to the Academy safely (once they have completed their self-isolation).
Please be more aware than ever how you and your child are as we approach the end of the holiday. It is vital if your child, or someone in your household, is displaying symptoms that they do not return to the Academy and that they undergo a coronavirus test.
