School Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
Please tell us who has symptoms, when they first got symptoms and/or the date of the test. That person will need to isolate for 10 days. Everyone else in the household and anyone else who has been in close contact with the person with symptoms will need to isolate for 14 days from the date the symptoms began.
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is having a significant impact on life in this country and across the world.
At Houghton Primary School we have taken and continue to take a considered, proactive and responsive approach to ensuring that we do everything possible to reduce the health risks of the pandemic for our school community.
We follow government and local authority guidance and advice and continually monitor the effectiveness of our risk management and operational planning.
