February 2022 Update:
The Department of Education has now issued guidance for the next phase of the Covid-19 response and this will be in place for the remainder of the Spring Term. In light of this guidance, the following measures will be in place at The Tutorial Foundation:
Pupils with Covid symptons or a positive test:
Pupils with Covid should not attend school whilst infectious. Please continue to let us know if they have tested positive or have symptons.
Pupils should take a daily LFD test from 5 days after their symptoms started or day 5 of positive test (if asymptomatic) followed by another one the next day.
Once 2 consecutive LFD test results are negative, they should return to school as long as they feel well enough and do not have a temperature.
After 10 days they should return to school to school irrespective of LFD test results providing they feel well enough.
Testing at school
Twice weekly asymptomatic testing is no longer advised but we will still be testing pupils every Thursday at school until the end of term.
The DofE recommend that all staff and eligible pupils take up the offer of the vaccine. Vaccinations are now community based: https://selondonccg.nhs.uk/what-we-do/covid-19-vaccine/pop-up-clinics/
