COVID-19

Information on our procedures and policies

What should I do if…my child or a household member has symptoms?

The main symptoms for COVID-19 are detailed on the NHS website.

If your child or anyone they live with have any of these official symptoms, the whole household must self-isolate. You should book a PCR test via gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test as soon as possible.

You will need to let the academy know that your child will not be in school because of this following our normal absence procedures. Please keep us updated with the results of tests.

What should I do if…my child or a household member tests positive for COVID-19?

If your child or anyone they live with tests positive for COVID-19,the whole household must self-isolate.

You will need to let the academy know that your child will not be in school because of this following our normal absence procedures. Please note that NHS Track and Trace may not automatically inform the school – you must tell us if your child or someone they live with tests positive for COVID.

We would appreciate it if you could send us a copy of the NHS notice. You can email it to manc-attendance-m@coopacademies.co.uk and we have an attendance mobile you can forward the message to – please ask if you need it.

Your child will be expected back in when the official self-isolation period ends. Please keep us updated if anything changes during this period.

What should I do if…my child is self-isolating and well, and able to follow a programme of home learning

Our teachers will provide a programme of home learning via Google Classroom.

What are we doing to keep the academy and its students safe?

The full details are available on our Risk Assessment below.

Students, staff and visitors should regularly and thoroughly wash their hands and/or use the hand sanitising pumps around the academy.

Testing in the academy’s Asymptomic Test Centre

As students return to the academy in September, we will be inviting students to take part in two lateral flow tests in the academy. All students whose parents consent to testing will be offered tests.

Please note that the swabbing process for home testing and for tests in our centre are slightly different.

Home testing

The government recommends home testing for everyone twice a week. Students and staff can be provided with home test kits.

For other members of the household, you can get a twice-weekly test:
