Tier System for Self-isolation
We have a multi-tiered procedure in place for self-isolation. These are as follows:
Tier 1 - Individual pupil/pupils self isolating
Tier 1 is the lowest level and is when individual or small numbers of children are self-isolating within a bubble. This is normally when someone in the child’s household is showing symptoms of, or has tested positive for coronavirus, and so the child has to self-isolate (but is not unwell themselves).
Tier 2 - Bubble Isolation
Tier 2 is implemented when a complete bubble (class) has to self-isolate. A bubble is now likely to be a whole class, rather than a complete year group. Isolation will occur for 3 reasons: either the class teacher, the children or another adult that comes into contact with the class tests positive for Covid-19.
Tier 3 - Whole school closed to pupils
Tier 3 is when a whole year group or the whole school has to self isolate.
