Important COVID-19 Guidance 24 February - 1 April


On 21 February 2022 the Prime Minister set out the next phase of the Government’s COVID-19 response. 

Our priority, at Newtown C of E Primary School, has always been and continues to be to keep everyone safe.


At this time, we still need to be able to operationally run and to staff the school. Therefore, staff and children will continue to be asked to isolate if they test positive.


If your child or if any staff member has symptoms of COVID-19, we would recommend booking a free PCR test at the earliest opportunity. 


Isolation can be for up to 10 days from when symptoms start. However many people will no longer be infectious to others after 5 days and if two LFD tests on day 5 and day 6 are negative, isolation can stop on the 6th day. Remote learning will be provided for any child who tests positive for COVID-19 and it is expected that children complete the work set when well enough to do so. 


We will continue to risk assess and if needed put further contingency measures in place. 


This information is subject to change. We are currently awaiting guidance from Hampshire County Council and when we do receive any further information, which is likely to be Monday, we will communicate this to you in a timely manner as always. 


We do hope you have all had a relaxing half term break and we look forward to seeing all the children back at school on Monday morning.
