Dear Parents/Carers,

Contrary to recent press reports, HCPS will still be closing for the Christmas holidays at your pick up slot on Friday 18th December.

Informing school of symptoms and subsequent test results during the holiday:

Please continue to inform us if your child develops symptoms on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th December and/or you have booked or taken a COVID test, by using the email address by 3pm on Monday 21st December at the latest. DO NOT PHONE THE SCHOOL.

This is because current guidance says that if someone tests positive for coronavirus, those who were in close contact with them 48 hours before the symptoms emerged are likely to need to be told to self isolate. Public Health England is relying on schools to provide information regarding who may need to isolate.

From Tuesday 22nd December and until we return to school on Tuesday 5th January 2021, please use the normal national track and trace system either by using the app or by clicking on this link –
