Dear Parents/Carers

Re: Contact for positive cases

Once term ends, school may still be required to play a part in contact tracing should a member of our school community test positive for coronavirus.

If your son/daughter becomes symptomatic and subsequently test positive, please follow the instructions below:

If the symptoms begin within 48 hours after leaving school on their last day AND the test comes back positive:

  • you must email me directly – head@peartree.lancs.sch.uk
  • Please do not make contact with any other member of staff
  • I will then inform Lancashire County Council of the case and inform them of any close contacts.
  • Lancashire County Council will then take responsibility for contact tracing and informing anyone who needs to self-isolate.
  • I will only be checking my emails once a day at 12 noon up until and including Christmas Eve.

 

If the symptoms begin after 48 hours since they were last in school:

  • Follow the national guidance for NHS Test and Trace to manage

 

I sincerely hope that no-one will need to access the above information and that we are all able to enjoy a safe, healthy and happy Christmas

 

Many thanks

 

Kate
