Our response to the Coronavirus pandemic

Please keep visiting this page for updates as the guidance for schools develops.  We aim to update this page when guidance is changed or updated.

Below you can find the various flowcharts to help you with the next steps in case you, your child or someone in the house tests positive or is recognised as a close contact.


Positive lateral flow

If your lateral flow test at home is positive, please inform school via email to Mr Cashell (tim.cashell@scarboroughcollege.co.uk).  Please do not go to school and book a PCR test or order a home PCR test.

When the result comes back, inform school via email.  You can return with a negative test result.  If the test returns positive, you must follow NHS guidance.

 


Close contact

If you are recognised as a close contact of someone who has tested positive after a PCR test, you must follow NHS guidance.  People who are double vaccinated or under the age of 18 should arrange for a PCR test, so long as they have not been tested positive in the past 90 days.

Pupils can continue going to school while they wait for their results but they must report to the Health Centre for daily lateral flow testing before the start of the school day.  Only pupils with a negative LFT can be admitted to school while they await their PCR test.

When the result comes back, inform school via email.  You can return with a negative test result.  If the test returns positive, you must follow NHS guidance.


Positive PCR in your household

If someone in your household test positive after a PCR test, you must follow NHS guidance.  People who are double vaccinated or under the age of 18 should arrange for a PCR test, so long as they have not been tested positive in the past 90 days.

Pupils who are awaiting their test result should continue to isolate.  When the result comes back, inform school via email.  You can return with a negative test result.  If the test returns positive, you must follow NHS guidance.
