St Margarets Primary School

Welcome St Margaret’s Important Covid Update:

Message from Mrs Westacott (Head Teacher / Head of Centre and NHS Lothian)

As you may already know, we are aware of a person in the school who has tested positive for COVID-19. We have been working closely with NHS Lothian Health Protection Team and following all national guidance.

Persons have now been contacted because they have been in close and sustained contact with the case and the tracking process is now complete.

These contacts will need to self-isolate and have been asked to book a COVID-19 test. Appropriate guidance and advice have been given.

If there are any further cases of COVID-19 in the school, we will ensure these individuals, and any of their close contacts, are advised to self-isolate promptly.

If you have not been contacted and your child remains well, you should continue to follow the school’s existing arrangements for your child.

Enhanced cleaning and infection control measures are in place in line with national guidance. The school is safe and remains open.

If you have any concerns in the meantime, or if you need to book a COVID-19 test because your child has developed symptoms (high temperature, a new continuous cough and/or a loss or change in sense of smell or taste) please visit the NHS Inform website or for non-clinical advice call 0800 028 2816.

Please note that a test should only ever be booked if you or your child has these specifics symptoms.

Remember to stay at home if anyone in the household has symptoms of COVID-19.

Kind regards
Mrs Westacott
