Here is some important information for all parents;

The Delta variant of COVID-19 (the variant of Indian origin) is much more transmissible than previous variants, and as a result we are seeing rapid increases in COVID infection in Calderdale. 

Symptoms in children and young people aren’t always as obvious as they are in adults, but if your child has a raised temperature it’s really important you take them for a PCR test at a testing centre. 

Public Health have advised schools that any child with a raised temperature, a new cough or a change to their sense of taste or smell should be asked not to attend school and seek a PCR test. 

If the test comes back negative children can return to school but Public Health have advised that if parents refuse a test for their child the child will need to remain off school for 10 days from start of symptoms.  Testing is widely available across the borough, with regular testing in Halifax, Todmorden, Mixenden and Brighouse and pop-up testing in other areas of the borough on occasion.

I know parents can't come into the building at the moment, so we thought we would share our new display in the hall with you.

Make your mark National..... and see where you end up!

All the children contributed, some circles are layered...
