Welsh Government advice on Covid and exams - update

People sitting GCSE, AS, A Level and vocational examinations

We want to enable learners to take their exams, well and safely.

  • If you have any of the main symptoms of COVID-19, you should self-isolate and take a lateral flow test (LFT).
  • If the test is positive, you should self-isolate for at least 3 full days. Day 1 is the day after your symptoms started. Please report your result (gov.uk).
  • On day 3, if your symptoms have stopped, take a LFT. If that test is negative, take another LFT on day 4.
  • If your day 4 test is also negative, and you feel well and do not have a high temperature, you can leave self-isolation to sit your exam. Please report your results (gov.uk).
  • If either the test on day 3 or the test on day 4 is positive, you should remain in self-isolation and contact your school or education setting.
  • If you still have a high temperature or feel unwell, you should continue to self-isolate until it returns to normal, or you feel better.
  • You should continue taking daily LFTs until you get 2 negative tests in a row, taken a day apart, or until day 10 – whichever is sooner. You do not need a negative LFT test on day 10 to leave self-isolation.

School Covid Risk Assessment and Covid Operating Instructions

The Ysgol Harri Tudor/Henry Tudor School Risk Assessment and School Covid Operating Instructions are subject to ongoing review. Please note in particular that:

Any staff member or pupil/student who has possible symptoms of COVID-19 must not attend school but must remain home and self-isolate, take a COVID-19 test and notify the school of this. The key symptoms are:

  • onset of a new continuous cough,
  • high temperature (fever),
  • loss of, or change in, normal sense of taste or smell (anosmia).

Additionally, any family/household member or any member of staff or pupil/student who displays possible symptoms of COVID-19 then the staff member or pupil/student must not attend school but must remain at home and commence a period of household isolation. Again the school should be notified of this.

Pupil Subject Leaders in Year 7 last year gave us feedback that they would like to have more outdoor learning experiences. As a result, we are pleased to be able to tell you that every learner in Year 7 will have some woodland taster sessions on site. This will be run by external providers who will help them learn about ‘survival skills’. For example, how to set up a camp by making a shelter and lighting a fire.  Read More…
