COVID-19

 

 

The school has set up a new dedicated email address for parents to use to notify us of children with COVID-19 symptoms

The email address is notify@bcjs.org.uk 

 

When to email

Please use this email address ONLY to report your child’s absence if they:

  • Experience any of the COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have taken a COVID-19 testTo report the COVID-19 test result – POSITIVE or NEGATIVE
  • Isolating because someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms themselves and your household is isolating and getting tested.

This email address will be monitored throughout the school day and we would ask that you please email rather than call the school office to report your child’s absence, if it is related to COVID-19.

What to write in your email

When emailing please include the following:

  • Child’s full name
  • Child’s classCOVID-19 symptoms experienced
  • Date COVID-19 test was taken
  • Reason for isolating at home - if no symptoms or test has been taken i.e. isolating because someone in your household has COVID-19 symptoms themselves and your household is isolating and getting tested.

Test results

It is also really important if your child has taken a COVID-19 test and is absent from school, that you inform the school as soon as you have the test result either positive or negative. Please email this through to the ‘notify’ email address notify@bcjs.org.uk 

Other absence

For all other absences not related to COVID-19 please continue to report this via the absence line on the morning of your child’s absence.
