Out of Hours Telephone Number - Covid 19

If a child has a positive test, please notify the school immediately by telephone. Do not email this information as it will require urgent action. There is a procedure for us to follow which involves contacting Public Health Wales for confirmation and direction. If you receive a positive test result out of school hours please telephone 07968 397375 as soon as possible.  This  will enable us to take the required action  as soon as we are alerted and put necessary protocols in place for the remainder of your child’s year/contact group.  Please note this number must only be used in the event of a positive test result being confirmed; not if your child is showing symptoms and not yet had a test result confirmed. 

If your child is self-isolating they must:

Remain home, must not go to public areas or other people's houses, and must not use public transport or taxis for 10 days or until you have been told that it is safe to do so.  They must minimise contact with other people in their home and not invite people to visit.
