Wanstead High School

Dear Parents and Carers,

I would like to remind you all of the very clear protocols around possible cases of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

If your child, or any member of your household has symptoms then they must not be sent to school. Please ring the school absence line.

Your child must get a Coranavirus test if they are displaying symptoms, and can only return to school if

  • The test is negative: you will need to provide the school with a copy of the negative test outcome.
  • Or, if the test was positive or no test was available, and they have spent 14 days in quarantine. 

If a member of your household is displaying symptoms then they too must get a test and your child can only return to school if

  • The test for the member of your household was negative
  • Or if the test was positive or no test was available, and your child has quarantined for 14 days.

Thank-you for your co-operation
