Tatworth Primary School always acts in the best interests of the children and staff. We will continue to adhere to advice received from Government, Public Health England, Somerset County Council, and other relevant agencies. Latest advice is that we move forward living safely with COVID-19 as we do with other illnesses.
Staff and children should not attend school if they are poorly. A child who is unwell with a high temperature should stay at home until they no longer have a temperature without using medication, and are well enough to return. The guidance for any child who has tested positive for COVID-19 is that they should not attend school for 3 days, but remain off longer if they continue to have a high temperature.
Guidance continues to ask schools to maintain good ventilation, use good hygiene practices including additional cleaning and to ask all children and adults to regularly wash hands or sanitise.
Our website will be updated should the situation change.
