COVID-19 information

The purpose of this page is to provide Chevening parents with reminders and updates about school-related activities and systems, with regard to the COVID-19 situation.

Most of this information has been sent directly to parents via email; this page provides a way to remain up-to-date with any changes that the school may need to make.

February 2022: Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 21.02.22, Chevening staff and families have been given this information:

 

The COVID situation is changing across the country and also in school. We really hope that lower rates of transmission continue, so that school, work and home lives are all less disrupted.

 

The main changes for us all remove legal requirements, but continue to emphasise sensible approaches to managing personal infection.

For now, in line with the current Government Guidance, our school approach remains:

  • Children/adults who display typical COVID symptoms (high temperature, new/continuous cough, change in/loss of taste/smell) will be sent home, in order to reduce the spread of infection.
  • If a child or adult tests positive for COVID, an isolation period of 5 full days is still needed. Close contacts no longer need to complete 7 days of LFD tests.
  • For those who do test positive.... If there are two negative lateral flow test results on both Isolation Day 5 and Day 6 and there is no high temperature, then return to school is permitted on Day 6.
  • If the result of either of the Isolation Day 5 and 6 tests is positive, return to school is not possible. Either negative results from two LFD tests on consecutive days or full 10 full days of self-isolation, (whichever is earliest) are needed to return to school.
  • Good ventilation and hygiene preventative COVID measures are still in place.

School staff are no longer required to undertake routine twice-weekly LFD tests.

For those who have COVID symptoms, here is a link to book PCR tests to confirm if the symptoms are COVID.

Should a localised outbreak occur in school, our Contingency Plan will be re-activated and DFE guidance sought.

Should national or local Government Guidance change, our procedures will also change.

January 2022: Copies of the updated COVID Risk Assessment and Outbreak Management Plan have been emailed to our families, but are also available below.
