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 recommend that staff and pupils who display symptoms of Covid get a PCR test and self-isolate until they receive the result and continue to self isolate if they have a positive test for five days. After five days, they may choose to take a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) followed by another the next day – if both are negative, and they do not have a temperature, they can safely return to your normal routine. Those who test positive should avoid contact with anyone in an at risk group, including if they live in the same household. If they test LFD negative on day 5 of their isolation, they should continue to isolate either until such time as they have two negative LFD tests on two consecutive days or they have been in isolation for 10 days.
Further details of our current Covid Operational Plan are available on request via the Head Master’s PA, [email protected]
Visitors are welcome to Wells Cathedral School. While visitors are no longer required by law to self-isolate, we recommend that you should still stay at home and avoid contact with other people if you have Covid-19. Should you develop symptoms of Covid-19 whilst at Wells, please inform your host immediately and follow his or her advice.
Face coverings are now optional in all areas of the School. Visitors are welcome to wear face coverings in any area if they wish.
We thank you very much for your help and understanding.
