Risk Assessment January 2022

COVID-19 Guidance - from 1st April 2022

  • There is no expectation for students or staff in education settings to routinely test themselves for COVID-19.
  • From 1st April 2022, anyone with a positive COVID-19 test result will be advised to try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for five days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be three days.

Only certain groups of people (for example, frontline NHS staff) will be able to have free PCR tests, and free lateral flow tests (LFT) will only be available for the over-75s and over-12s with weakened immune systems.

  • If your child tests positive, they should remain at home for 3 days before returning to school/college if they are well enough.
  • If your child’s test is negative, but they have a high temperature, they should remain off school until their temperature returns to normal (NHS advice).

Any student absence, COVID-19 or for any other reason, should be reported via our normal absence procedure, contact details for this are provided below.  There is no longer a requirement to email the WSE COVID-19 email address separately.

Close Contact Tracing

Staff, children and young people should attend their education settings as usual. This includes staff who have been in close contact within their household, unless they are able to work from home.
