COVID-19 Advice & Support

Covid Arrangements from September 2021

The government has relaxed the majority of the restrictions that impacted on schools last academic year and at Leehurst Swan we will be following the most recent guidance, which includes:

  • A move away from keeping children in consistent groups or ‘bubbles’, which means communal events like assemblies can resume;
  • Face coverings no longer being advised for pupils, staff and visitors either in classrooms or in communal areas, (some pupils may still prefer to wear one and this is acceptable);
  • Individuals not being required to self-isolate if they live in the same household as someone with COVID-19, or are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 if they are below the age of 18 years and 6 months or fully vaccinated.

We will continue to maintain rigorous cleaning regimes, alongside keeping classrooms well ventilated and ensuring high-quality hand and respiratory hygiene, in line with government requirements. Schools are also required to monitor the number of positive COVID cases in schools and to put measures back in place if there is a substantial increase in positive cases.
