The school has been informed that, as part of the new NHS Test and Trace service, we may need to share the names and contact numbers of anyone (or their parents and carers where applicable) who may have come into contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19. This will generally be a child or adult within the same ‘bubble’.
The NHS Test and Trace service:
· ensures that anyone who develops symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can quickly be tested to find out if they have the virus
· helps trace recent close contacts of anyone who tests positive for coronavirus and notifies them that they must self-isolate at home to help stop the spread of the virus
Therefore, we may need to share your details with Public Health England as part of the Trust’s public duty requirements. You will also be required to take the steps that Public Health England communicate to you if they contact you.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
