REPORTING OF COVID CASES DURING THE EASTER HOLIDAYS - Monday 29th March 2021
For the purposes of contact tracing staff, students, parents and carers need only inform the education setting of a positive case if the symptoms develop within 2 days of being in their education setting or they have tested positive with a lateral flow device (LFD) test (and will subsequently need to book a confirmatory PCR test).
School are asked to assist in identifying close contacts and advising self-isolation, as the individual may have been infectious whilst in their education setting.
Therefore, if a child or staff member develops symptoms up to 2 days into the Easter holiday (Saturday 3rd April) school will need to be contacted so they can inform other parents or staff within the bubble to self-isolate as a precautionary measure until the pupil or staff's test result is back. School will then inform parents and staff again of the result. If it is positive then a 10 day isolation should take place and if it is negative the precautionary self-isolation will end. If symptoms develop after 2 days, you do not need to inform school.
In the instance of a positive result, staff, students, parents and carers should follow contact tracing instructions provided by NHS Test and Trace.
Where pupils need to self-isolate due to contact with a positive case during the holidays, settings do not need to be informed about this until the first day of the Summer term if this affects their attendance.

MORE INFORMATION ON THE TEST AND TRACE SUPPORT PAYMENTS - Monday 29th March 2021
Applications from parents and guardians who need to take time off work to care for a child who is self-isolating
Eligible parents or guardians of children who have been advised to self-isolate by their education setting (even where they have not been told to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace) can also apply for the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme if they are on a low income, unable to work from home and need to take time off work to care for a child who is self-isolating. Parents and carers do not require an NHS Test and Trace Account ID number in order to claim and schools are not required to register all children asked to self-isolate with NHS Test and Trace in the same way as staff.
The scheme is open to eligible parents and carers of children aged 15 and under, and parents of young people aged 16 to 25 with an education health and care plan. Further information on how parents and guardians can claim financial support under the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme is available.
Schools should provide parents and carers of children advised to self-isolate with the template letter, detailing the child’s name and the dates of their isolation period. The parent or guardian will need to use this letter as supporting evidence as part of their application to their local authority for a payment from the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme. Parents whose children are told to self-isolate by their school will not be able to apply for financial support without a letter.
When a parent or guardian applies to the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme because they need to care for a child who is self-isolating, their local authority will be required to contact their child’s school via phone or email to verify information about the child. This includes the child’s name, age and dates of self-isolation. This is a standard check against fraudulent claims, and may take place before or after a payment is made.
