If your child, or a family member, has any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, a test should take place as soon as possible and, in accordance with Government guidance, your child and anyone they live with must stay at home and self isolate until the test result is received.

Do not send your child / children to school but do contact us if self isolation is taking place so attendance register can be updated.

If your child / children or a member of the household receives a negative test result it should be emailed to enquiries@stedmunds.org. A member of staff will contact you to confirm when your child / children can return to school.

If your child or someone in the family home tests positive for COVID-19, the household should self isolate for 10 days from the onset of symptoms. Everyone in the household who does not have any symptoms, must isolate at home for 14 days, or until the symptomatic household member receives a negative result.

Do not send your child / children to school but do contact us to agree an earliest date for a possible return.

Should your child receive a positive test result, you must contact St Edmund’s as a matter of urgency on 01902 558888.
