Coronavirus Information

Covid Guidance


As of 24.2.22 the government guidance for Covid is as follows:

  • Legal self-isolation in the event of a positive case is no longer a legal requirement.
  • Adults and children who test positive will continue to be advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for at least 5 full days and then continue to follow the guidance until they have received 2 negative test results on consecutive days.
  • Fully vaccinated close contacts and those aged under 18 will no longer need to test daily for 7 days
  • Close contacts who are not fully vaccinated  will no longer have to self-isolate.


This means that: 

  • Children/Staff should attend if they are well
  • Children/Students should stay at home if they are unwell – we will refuse entry to those that are symptomatic or are clearly unwell. 
  • If a child becomes unwell during the school day, as we do, parents would be requested to take the child home until they are well enough to return.
  • If a child/staff member has COVID-19 symptoms and undertakes a PCR test, they should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. If they test positive then they will not attend Ash Grange for 5 days or until they are well, if they require longer.
  • If a family member is unwell but the child is not, the child can still attend nursery/school.
  • We will keep spaces well ventilated
  • Children and staff can choose to wear a face covering in crowded and enclosed spaces, especially where coming into contact with people you do not usually meet and when rates of transmission are high
  • All will continue to follow the advice of washing hands and “Catch it, Bin it, Kill it”
