What to do if your child tests positive for Covid over the Christmas holidays.

Morning everyone,

I hope you are all well and looking forward to starting the Christmas holiday.

I thought it would be worthwhile outlining what is expected of you, and school, in the case of your child testing positive over the Christmas break.

I will be checking my emails up to, and including, Christmas Eve. So, if your child does test positive in this timeframe would you please email me at I will check my emails once a day and will ring you for a follow up conversation, as I may need to let other parents know and tell them to isolate.

If your child tests positive from Christmas day onwards, there is no need to email me. You simply need to tell school when we return on the 4th January.

If you have any concerns requiring support from social care, their phone number is 0115 876 4800. If it is an emergency, please ring 999.

I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Best wishes,

Mr Farrington
