Staff – Reporting lateral flow test results

Staff who have taken a lateral flow test need to report a positive result to the headteacher via text or telephone as soon as possible.

All staff who have a negative or a positive test result should also record the outcome at the following website each time a test is taken:

Coronavirus – St Ignatius’ Risk Assessment

We are sharing our coronavirus risk assessment with the school community:

Lancashire Risk Assessment re Covid school reopening (June 2020)

Coronavirus symptoms

The symptoms are usually:

  • a new, continuous cough
  • a high temperature (37.8C plus)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste

NHS Symptoms guidance

If your child shows symptoms at school, you must come and collect them immediately.


To keep our community’s risk as low as possible, we are asking all children to wash their hands for 20 seconds with soapy water:

When they come into school in the morning
At the start of playtime
At the start of lunchtime
At the end of the day

We are also having windows open to ensure airflow is maximised, and this will make the classrooms cooler.
