Coronavirus (Covid-19) Statement

The safety and welfare of our community is of utmost importance.

Updated: 3rd September 2021

Introduction

Wells Cathedral School is working hard to keep the community as safe as possible and to minimise the risks to pupils and staff from Covid. We continue to operate in line with the most current DfE and Public Health advice, and all parents/guardians are regularly communicated with regarding the measures we have put in place to try and minimise risk.

We encourage all staff and pupils in Year 7 and above to lateral flow test twice a week and only to come onsite if that test is negative or they are not displaying any of the Covid symptoms. Anyone who tests positive must isolate and undertake a further PCR Confirmatory Test and only return to School if that test is negative. Any boarders who test positive will either be asked to isolate at home/with guardians or, if this is not possible, will be isolated at School. Further details of our current Covid Operational Plan are available on request via the Head Master’s PA, [email protected]

Visiting Wells

Visitors are currently welcome to Wells Cathedral School, but we do ask that all visitors comply with the following:

  1. All visitors are encouraged to undertake a lateral flow test at home before coming on site.
  2. Visitors must NOT visit us in the following circumstances:
    • If they have tested positive in their lateral flow test and should therefore be isolating
    • If they have tested positive for Covid-19 and should be isolating.
    • If they have recently entered the UK from another country and are required to follow the current quarantine guidelines in place.
  3. Visitors will be asked to complete a Visitor Covid Questionnaire on arrival.
  4. Should you develop symptoms of Covid-19 whilst at Wells, please inform your host immediately and follow his or her advice.
  5. The wearing of face coverings on site by those who are eligible is optional generally speaking, although there may be certain situations where visitors are asked to wear a face covering.

We thank you very much for your help and understanding.
