Important letters / Information
Currently Covid 19 cases are above average in Shildon. We must all work together to help protect each other. If your child is ill no matter what the reason they must not come into school.
Lateral Flow Tests are for adults and secondary age children who do not have symptoms. Rapid lateral flow tests help to find cases in people who may have no symptoms but are still infectious and can give the virus to others. They are NOT to be used by primary school children.
If you or your child has symptoms you must take a PCR test.
