The Department of Health and Social Care, NHS Test and Trace, and Public Health England issued a letter to school and college leaders today providing clarity on when students and staff should be tested for coronavirus (COVID-19).
It is vital that only if children or staff develop symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – do educational settings ask them to self-isolate and recommend they get a test. The NHS Test and Trace system is fully up and running, but capacity must be protected for those with symptoms of the virus.
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, Oreston Community Academy has precautionary steps for all visitors to the site to help protect our school community. These measures reflect the latest government, Public Health England and NHS advice.
All visits to the school must be pre-booked. Please do not enter the building, stay in your vehicle and call the office to notify them of your arrival on 01752 402050. We will then call you when can enter the building to sign in and complete a health declaration.
Deliveries can be received into the school reception area.
