Reporting COVID-19 for a student

Dear parents and carers, 

During the Christmas period, the need to report a positive case of COVID-19 for a student at The St Leonards Academy will change.  

Until the 17th of December

Please continue to call the school on 01424 448 740 before 8.30am to notify of your child's absence and circumstances.

From 18th December until the 23rd December inclusive

If your child does develop symptoms and then tests positive for COVID-19 between the dates of 18th December and 23rd of December please complete the form below to allow us to complete tracing.

From 24th of December until 3rd of January

Where a pupil tests positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), having developed symptoms more than 48 hours since being in school, the Academy does not need to be contacted for tracing.   Parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace

If your child comes into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

You are not required to notify the Academy if your child has been in contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 between the dates of 18th of December and the 3rd of January.  If your child does need to isolate past the 3rd of January, please call the Academy on the 4th of January on 01424 448 740 before 8.30am to do so.

Wishing you and your family a safe and happy Christmas.
