COVID: Information and tests

Following the latest government guidance on 1st April 2022, we have returned to normal schooling in order to ensure that our students get the very best possible educational experience.  This means that all aspects of Swan School life will be in place, including family dining, assemblies, and electives.  Face coverings will no longer be mandatory.  

 

Students with Covid Symptoms 

Students with mild symptoms such as a runny nose, sore throat, or slight cough, who are otherwise well, can continue to attend the Swan School.

Students who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people, where they can. Please contact the school on [email protected] to let us know that your child is unwell. They can come back to school, and resume normal activities when they no longer have a high temperature and they are well enough to attend. 

 

Testing for Covid

 The latest government guidance is that children and young people are not tested for COVID-19 unless directed to by a health professional. We will therefore no longer be issuing at-home lateral flow tests from school.

If a student has a positive COVID-19 test result they should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 3 days after the day they took the test, if they can. After 3 days, if they feel well and do not have a high temperature, they can return to school

 

Household members of students with Covid Symptoms 

If a student has covid symptoms or a positive lateral flow, their household members do not need to self-isolate but should follow the guidance on COVID-19: people with COVID-19 and their contacts
