Covid-19 Guidelines

When the government enforced the closure of all schools on 20th March 2020, Hallfield School continued to look after in excess of 100 key worker children daily and we successfully reopened the school on 1st June 2020 to Foundation, Reception, Year 1 and Year 6. We looked after 15 ‘bubbles’ across the school with 200 children attending. This has been a huge undertaking and one that took meticulous planning during our weekly Covid-19 meetings.

We reopened the school on Monday 7th September 2020 to all children; we continue to focus on the latest government guidance to ensure that our provision remains Covid-secure. Please see the latest advice and updates below.

Covid Guidelines – January 2022
If a person tests positive on a lateral flow device and has NO symptoms, they do not need to go for a PCR test but should self-isolate for 10 days. A lateral flow test should be taken on day 6 and another one taken again 24 hours later (day 7). If both of these tests are negative and there is no high temperature, the person can end their self-isolation period. If the person develops symptoms during this period, a PCR test should be taken and the self-isolation time reset from this day.

If a person shows any COVID symptoms, they should arrange a PCR test and self-isolate. Lateral flows can be taken on day 6 and day 7 as above.

At the end of the self-isolation period, if the person has a high temperature or is feeling unwell, continue self-isolating and seek medical advice.


If the advice changes, we will be in touch with parents as we are aware of the impact on families of the rules.

If any parent needs help or support accessing on-line learning for their child, please email your child’s Form Teacher.
