Sars-Cov-2 Covid-19

Below you will find a link to the risk assessment for Sars-Cov-2 (Covid-19).

The information on the schools from central government can be found at What parents and carers need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges - GOV.UK (

Tracing close contacts and isolation 

Close contacts will now be identified by NHS Test and Trace. 

When to isolate 

Pupils, staff and other adults should follow public health advice on when to self-isolate and what to do. They should not come into school if they have symptoms, have had a positive test result in the last 10 days, or other reasons requiring them to stay at home due to the risk of them passing on COVID-19 (for example, they are required to quarantine). 

If anyone develops COVID-19 symptoms, however mild, they should send them home and follow public health advice. 

When isolation is not required 

Individuals are not required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19, and any of the following apply: 

  • they are fully vaccinated (at least 2 weeks following second vaccine dose) 
  • they are below the age of 18 years and 6 months 
  • they have taken part in or are currently part of an approved COVID-19 vaccine trial 
  • they are not able to get vaccinated for medical reasons
