At Robin Hood, we will continue to focus on high quality teaching and learning by continuing to progress through the curriculum, making decisions on what content is best to deliver remotely. We understand that these times may be challenging for our families and we have gathered information to answer some of the frequently asked questions and hopefully provide support where needed.

Please find links and sections below to access a wide range of information including our remote education provision and a wellbeing section. If you have any questions, please do contact us via the school enquiries.

What if a close contact at school tests positive?

If the close contact is under 18, they will not have to self-isolate (in line with the policy for fully vaccinated adults) but will be asked to take an PCR test immediately, other than for very young children identified as non-household contacts, and they will not need to self-isolate while awaiting the results of the test. If the PCR test is positive, they will be required to self-isolate for 10 days from the date of the test. NHS Test and Trace will then get in touch to identify close contacts.

If my child/I have symptoms of Coronavirus

If your child has symptoms, they and other members of the household who are not vaccinated and are over the age of 18 should self-isolate you should inform their education or childcare setting. You should immediately order a PCR test for them. If the PCR result is negative, they and other members of their household can stop self-isolating (unless instructed to self-isolate for other reasons). If the PCR result is positive, they, other members of their household (who are not vaccinated and are over the age of 18) and any close contacts identified by NHS Track and Trace (who are not vaccinated and are over the age of 18) must self-isolate until 10 days after the onset of symptoms. You will also need to let the school know.

This is the foundation of our testing strategy. It is the most effective way to know if you are positive and need to self-isolate. If you have symptoms, you should continue to book a test via the NHS Coronavirus (COVID-19) service or by calling 119.

As of Tuesday 11th Jan 2022 - the need for all people testing positive via a LFD test to take a PCR test was temporarily removed.

This is a link to the latest guidance.

These are still the three main symptoms:

  • a new continuous cough

  • a high temperature

  • a loss of, or change in, your normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia)

If anyone is exhibiting any of these three symptoms and tests negative following a LFD test they must still isolate at home and order a PCR test.
