Covid-19 Information

 Covid-19 Guidance - Spring 2 2022


We continue to proactively monitor rates of Covid-19 in our school family and are ready to respond, where necessary. From Feburary 24th 2022, the Government has published its plan for living with Covid-19.

This means that: 

  • While you will no longer be legally required to self-isolate if you test positive for Covid-19. If you test positive you are still advised to stay at home and avoid contact with other people
  • You are no longer legally required to self-isolate if you are an unvaccinated close contact, and will no longer be advised to test for seven days if you are a fully vaccinated close contact. New guidance sets out the self-isolation period for those who test positive as a minimum of five days, with a return to school on the sixth day, if you record two consecutive, negative LFD tests.


We have updated our risk assessments and there will be systems and procedures in place to ensure the safety of everyone in our school community.

Please make sure that you have read all the information.

If you have any queries or questions, then please do not hesitate to contact the school office via phone or email.


If your child has any of the following symptoms, please do not send them into school.  If a child displays these symptoms while in school, we will contact a parent and ask the child to be taken home.  


  • A new, continuous cough
  • A high temperature
  • A loss or change in sense of taste or smell

If your child is feeling unwell, please take a Lateral Flow test before bringing them into school.

Covid-19 Update - March 2022

Covid Catch Up Funding 20-21


Following the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent closure of schools, the government issued an amount of catch-up funding to all schools to support with closing gaps in learning. The amount of funding allocated is based on pupil numbers and is paid over two financial years. 


At Seaburn Dene Primary School we have considered the age of our children when deciding how to allocate and spend our money. We have also used the government recommended, 'COVID-19 Support Guide for Schools' published by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) to identify the best strategies, based on long term research, that will enable us to achieve the most positive outcomes
