Marriotts have undertaken a full assessment of our practises to ensure we can reduce the risk of Covid-19 to an acceptable level whilst re-opening our doors to students for the 20/21 academic year. There are several documents and videos found on this webpage to inform and guide students on the temporary expectations starting in September.
Covid-19 Catch-up Funding
The school has been allocated additional funding to support students disrupted by the pandemic. The school has planned what measure and actions it will take to minimise the impact on education and wellbeing.
The following are symptoms of coronavirus:
Individuals will need a test if they have any of the following:
- A high temperature: any new high temperature where the person feels hot to touch on their chest or back (you do not need to measure the temperature);
- A new continuous cough: coughing a lot for more than an hour, or three or more coughing episodes in 24 hours;
- A loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste: a noticeable loss of smell or taste or things smell and taste different to normal.
Individuals do not need a test if they have a runny nose, are sneezing or feeling unwell but do not have a temperature, cough or loss of, or change in, sense of smell or taste because these are not normally symptoms of coronavirus.
If you develop symptoms: self-isolate and get a test
If you think that you or a family member has coronavirus symptoms, self-isolate immediately.
The next thing to do is to seek to order a test. If you have internet access, go to https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
Testing is run by national Government, not the County Council.
If you cannot access the internet to get a test, call 119 instead.
Your child is a close contact of a confirmed Covid-19 case.
Young people under the age of 18 years and six months do not have to isolate if they are a close contact of a confirmed Covid-19 case.
They should still get a PCR test.
They only need to isolate if they have any symptoms up until they get a negative Covid test result or 10 days have passed since symptoms were first experienced.
What is a close contact?
Close contact means:
- direct close contacts - face to face contact with an infected individual for any length of time, within 1 metre, including being coughed on, a face to face conversation, or unprotected physical contact (skin-to-skin).
- proximity contacts - extended close contact (within 1 to 2 metres for more than 15 minutes) with an infected individual.
- travelling in a small vehicle, like a car, with an infected person.
Please try to avoid close contact with all other staff members and students so that in the event of a confirmed case you do not need to isolate.
Please ensure all seating plans are correct and in place as I will request these in the event of a confirmed case.
