Contact tracing in schools

​If your child tests positive for COVID-19 using a PCR test, NHS Test, Trace, Protect (TTP) will contact you using the details provided when the PCR test was ordered. They will ask for details of recent close contacts of your child. TTP will work with schools to get in touch with these close contacts to provide instructions or advice.

Those who are under 18 or fully vaccinated are no longer required to self-isolate if they are identified as close contacts. But they will be contacted to let them know that they’ve been in close contact with someone who has tested positive.

They will also be offered two PCR tests and provided with information and advice on how to minimise the risks of onward spread.

If your child is identified as a close contact, they can still attend school unless they develop symptoms or are advised otherwise by TTP.​
