What you need to know
Responding to the Coronavirus advice from the Government.
They are now developing a new NHS ‘Test and Trace’ scheme as part of their ongoing plan to manage the spread of Coronavirus.
As our continuing commitment to this safety and wellbeing of all our children, staff, parents, and carers we may be called upon by NHS ‘Test and Trace’ workers to share information with them on those attending the Morton Trentside Primary School.
This would be in response to either someone from the setting or someone they may have had close contact with, testing positive for COVID-19.
We may be asked for details of whom a child / parent / member of staff has had contact with over a set course of days and then possibly need to provide contact details of the parent / carer.
Please be reassured we will not share information unless approached by the ‘Test and Trace’ service and will record all details on this, following all advice given to us by them at the time.
For further information on how the ‘Test and Trace’ service works please follow the link below. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/nhs-test-and-trace-how-it-works
Focusing on the section heading ‘When we contact you’ which provides information on how they will contact you, such as the number they will call from 0300 0135000. What contact tracers will and will never ask of you.
