Information and Letters to Parents
Letters to Parents from Liverpool's Director of Public Health and Director of Children's Services
Informing School of a Pupil’s Positive Covid Test Result
It is important that we are notified by parents of a pupil’s positive result as soon as the test result is known.
If you receive notification of a positive test result out of school hours (eg. in the evening or at the weekend), please do not wait until the next school day to inform the school. The sooner we are informed, the quicker we can act to inform other members of the school community who may have had close or direct contact with the affected pupil.
COVID-19 Absence Advice for Parents
Letter from Public Health England (PHE) to Parents (23 September 2020) - advice on when a person requires a coronavirus test and what the symptoms of coronavirus are
We recommend that parents access the quick guide for parents below as it sets out clearly the actions you must take in a variety of situations and also when a child is able to come back to school.
Essential Use of Face Coverings
It is now essential that parents and carers in Liverpool wear face coverings when collecting and dropping off their children at school. Those who cannot wear face coverings should maintain social distancing of at least 2m from children and other parents/ carers.
When you are collecting and dropping off your child, please ensure you follow this directive to help ensure the safety of our school and the wider community.
