Strategy to Recover Lost Learning

Latest Letter from Mrs Brown

Recognising that COVID-19 is subject to rapid change, we highlight the Government website, which offer clear fact and advice:


Outbreak Management Plan

The outbreak management plan is designed to clarify the phases of outbreak and the actions our school will take to reduce the risk of transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19) in our school.  This plan is based upon guidance published by the Department for Education in July 2021.

The plan explains: 

  • what we’ll do to anticipate, prevent, and respond to outbreaks of COVID-19 at NMR.
  • what education will look like at all phases
  • what social contact will look like at all phases
  • how we work with NHS Test and Trace and Public Health England

When to test and when to self-isolation?

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April. 

The updated guidance advises: 

  • adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and they no longer have a high temperature 
  • children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can go back to school when they no longer have a high temperature, and they are well enough to attend 
  • adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice will be 3 days 

Government is assured that the population now has much stronger protection against COVID-19 than at any other point in the pandemic. This means society can begin to manage the virus like other respiratory infections, thanks to the success of the vaccination programme and access to antivirals, alongside natural immunity and increased scientific and public understanding about how to manage risk.
