School Response to COVID-19 Pandemic


Parents and carers can contact the school out of hours using this email address if anyone in the household has C-19 symptoms or has tested positive: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 

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.

Please find the documentation which underpins the operation of our school at this time on the links below.
