Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information

COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our personal, work and of course school life. The team at Nutley CoE Primary School have had to learn new skills and cope with situations that no-one could have predicted or trained for. We are following governance guidance in relation to all aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic, more details of which can be found below.

If Nutley CE Primary school experiences an outbreak, either because we have 2 or more confirmed cases of Coronavirus (COVID-19) among pupils or staff in our setting within 14 days, or we see an increase in pupil or staff absence rates due to suspected or confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID19), we will need to contact our local health protection team. This team will advise if additional action is required, such as closing the whole school.
 

Where an outbreak in our school is confirmed, a mobile testing unit may be dispatched to test others who may have been in contact with the person who has tested positive. Testing will first focus on the person’s class, followed by their year group, then the whole school, if necessary. If our local area sees a spike in infection rates that is resulting in localised community spread, decisions will be made on what measures to implement to help contain the spread.

 

The government will be involved in decisions and will support our individual school to follow the health advice. In all cases, where groups of pupils need to self-isolate or where a larger restriction of attendance at school is needed, we will ensure children’s education can continue remotely.
