What Parents / Carers must do if someone in their household has symptoms of Coronavirus

 

Anyone with symptoms will be eligible for testing and this can be arranged via https://www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.

All household members must stay at home and not leave the house until the results of tests are received.  This includes anyone in your ‘Support Bubble’. Household members should not go to work, school or public areas and exercise should be taken within the home.

We would like to thank parents and carers for working with us to help to keep our community safe by following both government and College guidance on what to do if your child or a member of your household has coronavirus symptoms.

 
What Parents / Carers must do if their child (a student of The Spires college) has a positive test result

 

Should your child receive a positive test result, it is important that we know straight away so that we can respond quickly.  This includes letting us know in the evenings and at weekends.

Should your child receive a positive test result, please email testresult@thespirescollege.com.  Please only use this email address to tell us that a child from the College has received a positive result or that they have symptoms and are being tested.  You should continue to inform your child’s Pastoral Support Manager of negative test results or positive results in other household members.

Please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s Pastoral Support Manager if there is anything about which you are unsure.
