Out-of-hours communication in relation to a positive Covid results
In order to facilitate ‘out of school hours’ communication, alerting the school to a positive test result for Covid-19, parents should use the following school mobile number: 07821127309 (held by Mr Armstrong, Senior Manager). This should only be used 4.30 pm-10.00 pm on weekdays and 8.30 am-10.00 pm on weekends. Please note that this number is not for general queries or advice.
Parents will be asked to confirm their child’s class, date of last attendance in school, involvement in sports/music, etc to facilitate the track and trace programme. The school can then communicate with parents (via Parentmail) in relation to pupil/staff attendance. Parents will also be asked to complete an online form (see below), which will assist the school further in identifying close contacts.
During the school day (8.30 am-4.30 pm), communication alerting school to a positive test result should be by telephone (school office 028 90428780) or by email (email@example.com).
