Please note: Any staff members or children indicated above are isolating as per the current guidance.
*The above data is for information only to support our community in monitoring symptoms of their own children and families.
Please monitor your child for symptoms and get them tested as soon as possible if you suspect they have COVID-19 symptoms.
It is inevitable with the rate of infection within our community currently increasing that Somerville Federation with over 100 staff and 600 children would be impacted since our return to school in September. If an outbreak occurs additional measures will be put in place as per the current guidance and following our contingency risk assessment.
NHS test and trace now manage any close contacts. However we find that this approach may support you and our Somerville families so that you can take your own measures to protect your vulnerable family members.
NHS test and trace may not contact anybody double vaccinated or under the age of 18. Remember at the moment there is no need for concern and no requirement for self-isolation.
We therefore ask all our families to be vigilant and when you suspect a member of your family has Covid-19 symptoms to get them tested and inform the school as soon as possible if they test positive to ensure that we can update our other families in school and follow our risk assessment regarding any possible contingency plans if there is an outbreak amongst classes.
You will also find below our risk assessments for both schools, one relates to our return to school and the other relates to contingency planning in case of several cases at either school or additional measures which may need to be implemented.
