Contact Tracing over February half term

 

Schools are required to track and trace for 48 hours after school finishes on Friday 12th February 2021.

Where pupils or staff attending school test positive, having developed symptoms within 48 hours of being in school, the school is required to identifying close contacts and advise self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in school. So, similar to Christmas, pupils or staff who develop symptoms on Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th February will need to be contact traced by the school. If your child develops covid symptoms on Saturday 13th or Sunday 14th February and test positive you must inform the local authority by:

emailing coronavirus.schools@portsmouthcc.gov.uk

or phone 02392 841717

The school will contact you to confirm close contacts and self-isolation period. The school will then notify the close contacts via email and text. ONLY those impacted will be contacted. Please ensure you are regularly checking your emails and texts as this will be the only official means of communication during this period. If you are contacted, you will receive an email containing all the information you need to know.
