If Your Child Tests Positive

It is crucial that families inform us of a positive case straight away. The sooner we are made aware, the more time we have to respond. 

If your child receives a positive test result for Covid-19, please follow these steps… 

  1. Call the school immediately and ensure you speak to a member of staff. Please explain that your child has tested positively for Covid-19. Clearly leave the name of the child and your contact details. 
  2. If you need to make contact outside of the hours of 8.15am and 4.00pm, please provide the same information by email using covid-case@ndhs.org.uk
